Orlando, Florida – Cypress Gardens (Infrared)

Cypress Gardens

During my trip to Orlando, I aslo had a little time to explore Cypress Gardens.  It about 30 mins from the theme parks.  This used to be a theme park in its day.  But now its just a garden.  Its a little sad to drive through the theme park with rides/roller coasters/shops all empty.  Like a ghost town.  I did not know what to expect.  It was ok.  Quiet.  But I did like seeing the Cypress trees.  You can walk through the garden in about 1 hour.  Admission was $13.00.   Its more like a tropical trail.   I did get a few ok pictures.  I was on the lake shore and took this shot.  Looked nice in IR.   I gave it the bluish/gray tint via working with hues.     I have to still go through my pics…I may have a nice HDR from here?  There is one shot at the park that is used for postcards from Florida for many years.  If it comes out ok as and HDR…I’ll post it.   I’d skip this place, but if your up for checking it out…dont expect much.  I would have like to stop and take an HDR of the old empty roller coasters, but your tram doesnt stop there.
