The Advantages of Different Perspectives

A beautiful day offered the chance to get outside with the camera again.  I love glimpses like this, looking through the ninebark and the amur maple towards the waterfall and pond.  A new perspective, rather than straight on, shows how important it is to implement different vistas in the landscape.  A new angle presents a totally different view.

 From different angles in the garden, the view is slightly different which is a great treat for the eye.

The reflections in your little pond are truly a delight.
Nice design.

What a lovely waterfall and pond Shirley. Ones perspective not only in the garden but in life affects everything :)

Beautiful garden!

Late Visiting for WW, here's my Watery Wednesday. Drop by when you can, thanks!

Great angles, all of them very distinct and different. I love to take photos through leaves, usually with a very wide-aperture lens to blur the foreground to almost nothing - I've got some from the Bellevue Botanic Gardens like that I need to post one of these weeks.

Great looking water garden and I like the reflection!

Your garden is so lovely. It must be a great place to sit out in and read a good book. (After the weeding is done, of course!)

Your son knew what he was doing when he incorporated water into the garden. How restful!


Mist on the ocean,
Mist on the sea,
Mist on the meadow,
Mist on the tree;

Dew on the grasses,
Dew on the rose,
Dew in the garden,
Dew on my clothes;

All of this wetness,
It’s plain to see,
Promises blessings
For you and me!
