The following pictures were all taken at Mt Cootha Botanical Gardens in Brisbane. I walked through the Japanese garden to have a look at a small water feature when the sprinklers came on. I don’t know about anyone else but I think this picture has a certain surreal quality about it.
This is the water fall I wanted to see. Ah, the peace and quiet of it all.
What? More serenity.
I love the form and setting of these gardens, everywhere you look small areas are framed by bigger plants.
All I have done to this picture is to lighten it. The water looked oily black, dimming the flower, so I lightened it a little. The remainder of the pictures are in the main part of the gardens.
All I have done with this picture is to trim it sown, the reflections look like an oil painting to me.
This picture is not about the wee water hens you may be able to see. It’s about the different textures and colours of the water.
Textures and shading in the fern house.
A little different to the usual Cranes one sees wading around the place. A road tunnel is being constructed outside the gardens, it goes under the General cemetery.
That is me for tonight, I know I’m not my usual bouncy and cheery self, but the pictures make up for it. Drop in next week and we will have a flower fiesta happening and maybe a couple of animals that lurk around the gardens
