Picnicing couple framed by trees and bushes. I didn't want to intrude, but a close up would have been such a nice pic in pic. 1/45 sec, f5.6, 135mm

Evy, I'm sorry it took so long to thank you for your kind compliments, but I have been out of town and this was my first opportunity to respond. The location for this scene was the San Fransisco Botanic Gardens. The couple couldn't have chosen a more lovely and romantic spot for their picnic. #1795088
