Such a beautiful shot, from such a wonderful perspective. Where were you?

Dina said...

The old expression "well-manicured" comes to mind for this garden.

Anya said...

but it looks very beautiful
and I think its nice to sit on that bench :-)

Tanya said...

This looks very well cared for.

Please excuse me for using a preposition to end a sentence with.

You have a nice birds-eye view of the park.

That's about as pretty as it could be. A lovely place to take a lunch break or just sit and read a book and drink in the glorious scenery!

Birdman said...

Love to be there with a book... a guess a hallmark of a fine photograph.

Very trim and very neat; it's a beauty.

Such a pleasure to see so many greens. And no body.

I would die to have a park like this in my city! But the green would never last in the heat :(

Lovely place! Now I have to ask you permission to use this picture for my benches blog, obviously with full credits to you.

What a fabulous shot. I love gardens but it is always a challenge to present them in a way that captures their artistry ... this has done so wonderfully.

Sharon said...

What a lovely spot to relax and take pictures. I love the light in this photo. It feels soft.

Leif Hagen said...

Very lush and green! Wouldn't mind a coffee break there!

Hilda said...

Beautiful! I imagine the trees would be magnificent in Spring, especially if they're old.

Laurent said...

I did not had the time to congratulate you for your new blog look. It's great and gives more pleasure to enjoy your photos.

Did you climb up a tree to get this excellent shot? I like an older park---it looks well done. MB

I find the neatly-trimmed shrubbery is
against all expectations.
It is an old style, isn't it?
