The San Luis Obispo Camera Club took a field trip last Saturday to the Leaning Tree Arboretum on Cal Poly campus.This five acre arboretum features plants from the world's five mediterranean climate regions. It was my first visit there and I can see I will be returning to explore it more. I think it will be spectacular in Spring. Even in this 'off' season I found plenty of subject matter to photograph. I am always drawn to the patterns and shapes of things and I found the designs on this cactus to be particularly beautiful.
