Disney Pic of the Week: Landscaping

Photographic Innoventions by Scott Thomas

Disney Imagineers use plants from all over the world to create landscaping for places not thought of or finding “look-alike” replacements which will grow in central Florida. Landscaping at Walt Disney World is our theme for this week’s Disney Pic of the Week.

The African savanah of Disney’s Animal Kingdom is a mix of African and plant species both domestic and from other parts of the world to create an ecosystem for African animals. Additionally, Animal Kingdom Horticulture and outside vendors produce thousands of pounds of cut browse weekly. This browse is positioned throughout the animal habitats such as the savannas for the animals to feed on which in turn reduces the impact on the planted landscape. Insuring the savannas stay stable and still properly feed the grazing animals.

Barrie and Lisa will be showing their favorite landscaping photos on Thursday and Saturday.

Scott's "Photographic Innoventions" blog focuses on intermediate to advanced photography concepts and techniques relevant for Point and Shoot and Digital SLR cameras.
