Sunday shooting at the Schloss!

Brandon and I decided to head to the Schwetzingen Schloss today to look around and take some photos.  It had rained a little earlier in the day so we were able to wander around with minimal crowds.  The gardens weren’t in full bloom but we did manage to get some pretty cool shots.

Not the greatest photo, but I wanted to test out my new 70-200mm.  We watched this little guy fish for awhile and were pretty impressed by his skills….and by the new lens!

Oh my! I have no idea what the name of that pretty purple flower is, but I love it! Great composition.
Thanks so much for joining Alicia and I in our Crazy Days of Summer photo challenge. I'm following you now via GFC and hoping you'll be able to play along again as we move on to the "refreshing" theme on Friday. Thanks again! Have a great day. :)
