The Drum Bridge–January

I have really enjoyed taking monthly photographs of different Missouri Botanical Garden landmarks over the last two years, so I decided to do it again this year. I wasn’t sure which location to pick at first, until I realized that the Japanese Garden is celebrating its 40th anniversary this year. Once I learned that, my location choice was obvious…the Drum Bridge!

I’m very grateful we had snow already this month, and on a day when I was already planning on driving into the city. Snow is actually considered a flower in a Japanese Garden, so I think it’s especially fitting that my first month of photographing it, the bridge is “in bloom!”

I haven’t yet decided from what angle I want to photograph the bridge. I really like the way it looks from both sides, and the background either way is also stunning. For this month, at least, I’m “cheating” with two pictures…and if I continue having a hard time choosing my shot, I’ll just keep on sharing both!
