Bonsai Tree's at the National Arboretum Washington D.C.

Another place to visit in our nations capitol is the National Arboretum (google for directions), this free national park holds the national bonsai tree collection. I first visited this place in 1979 when Valerie and I were first dating and have been returning ever since to practice my photography. I'll post some of those pictures at a later date... For pictures like these use your tripod focus on the trunk of the tree and try F-16 in aperture priority as a starting point....Gary
