Wheelbarrow in garden at Filoli by Scott Loftesness

Prompted by InMenlo’s coverage earlier this week about the daffodil festival at Filoli this weekend, I headed out to the estate this afternoon. In this colorful place, I came across this wheelbarrow up next to the aviary sitting in beautiful filtered sunlight.  I just loved the light and shadows contrast and the position of the containers of tulips adjacent to the wheelbarrow.  The image was captured with a Canon 5D Mark II using a 70-200mm f/2.8 lens and processed to black and white using Nik’s Silver Efex Pro 2.

Note that this weekend is Filoli’s opening celebration for 2012 – titled “Daffodil Daydreams“.
