One of the benefits of planning for a photoshoot, is discovering exactly what's 'happening' in the parks and gardens around Toowoomba.
I spend a lot of time travelling around town to see what is happening seasonally to find the 'best' place to capture those special memories.
And the benefits of doing this 'scouting' (as I call it), is discovering the seasonal changes and the 'small' things that give me so many wonderful opportunities when I've got my trusty camera in tow.
I love the Japanese Gardens, but at the moment it's not quite there from a foliage point of view. According to the gardener there, the blossoms will be in full bloom in about three weeks time. This doesn't work for me this time round, but it certainly has some lovely elements starting to show and should be a stunning place to visit around Carnival Of Flowers!
