Moorten Botanical Garden
May 10, 2013 § Leave a comment
For our honeymoon, we only had three things in mind: One – at some point, make it to Palm Springs. Two – as little planning/stress as possible so we could just enjoy being married. Three – adventure on the road.
After planning a wedding for months, our last idea of a good time was more planning. So we packed our little car full of essentials and set out with our non-existent itinerary.
One of our stops included the Moorten Botanical Garden in Palm Springs. If you’re staying at the Ace Hotel, it’s literally around the corner and definitely worth a visit. Bring a camera and water, though – you’ll need both.
Moorten Botanical Garden also happens to provide opportunities for one of my favorite situations – monochromatic tones broken up by various textures. Obviously, we had quite the field day there and these photos aren’t even the half of them. But here are some of the real winners in the lot. Side Note: I am now officially biased towards the Voigtlander Bessa III. It has consistently done well for me.
God, the Creator of the universe does very much astound me at times like these. It’s a surreal experience when you can look at sheep in grassy fields all day, and within one day’s drive be surrounded by an entire garden of massive aloe and cacti (with no sheeps in sight). If there is anything that I really appreciate about road trips, it’s the ability to see how the Lord has manifested His immeasurable beauty in every place. And in so many different ways. Amazing, always. I’m excited to show you some of the other ways we saw His face on our honeymoon. More to come.
And if you want to see some good ole iPhone snapshots, you can take a looksies on my Instagram.
