Tea Mural US Botanic Garden Conservatory

This image was captured while visiting the United States Botanic Garden Conservatory in Washington, DC. I found it a very interesting contrast to the large collection of plants that surrounded it and other displays created using plant material.

The image was captured at 4:15 PM on November 28 using natural light and hand held camera. The camera is a Nikon D300 using a Sigma 10/20 mm f/4.0-5.6 lens set at 10 mm. ISO 800, exposure 1/15 second at f/6.3.
