Rose-Lined Paths and Secluded Shade

When visiting the JC Raulston Arboretum in Raleigh, NC, I am usually taking macro photos of flower and butterflies, but on this trip, I wanted to take my new wide-angle lens out for a spin.  I’m still getting used to the [awesome] 1.8 f-stop on this lens, thus my goal was to compose landscape photos that showcased the depth of field capabilities of a 1.8 f-stop prime lens.   With the sun being high in the sky (coupled with my aversion to heavy shadows), it did prove a little difficult, but here are some gems.
