I was out and about at the amazing Huntington Gardens and Huntington Library a couple of weeks ago. It is a fascinating display, both in the mansion and grounds. A truly magnificent collection of plants, trees, cacti, succulents and shrubs from around the globe. The grounds are so well put together and some the fine collections have been well maintained and cared for over many years, allowing the gardens to mature in a veritable paradise! I took a couple of photos while there and would like to add a few to this page, so you get a feel for the beauty and history which embodies Huntington Gardens…

A Manhattan, New York evening shot from Brooklyn as the sun went down and a 50’s filter was used to give this an old time feeling. This was shot from a high rise in Williamsburg, Brooklyn on the 27th floor through double pain glass so there is a little double reflection an some areas. Hope you like it!

Just uploaded a rework of New Dawn. Laid back relaxing down tempo track with ambient ocean and bird sounds. Sounds like you are on the edge of a tropical forest with the ocean near by. Hope you like it…
