Red Butte Gardens is in full bloom right now and I had the privilege of walking around the grounds yesterday, experimenting with some new advanced settings.
This is perhaps the largest Koi I have seen and he was willing to pose for me until he realized I had no food for him.
This photo looks like it could have been taken in the early morning hours, but actually it was more like high noon. I pushed the ISO up and adjusted the speed to a much faster setting than I've ever used before. Love these soft results.
