A Photography exhibit by Wendy Rosenberg, featuring horticultural photography of plants, flowers and animals.
Wendy is a self taught photographer and also a University of Connecticut certified Master Gardener. She has combined these two disciplines and created a photo exhibit of natural images directly from her own back yard. From the horticultural perspective she has developed a peaceful yet bustling natural habitat with a vast array of plants, flowers and water features which attract many diverse species. Photographically she has captured many unusual and unseen everyday creatures and flora right outside her door. All photos are true-to-life and never digitally or computer enhanced. A Nikon digital-SLR camera was used for all photos.
