... in an English country garden 4

Posted by
: Helen : (Helen is photographing in, Australia) on 7 November 2013 in Landscape & Rural.

I visited the Cockington Green Gardens when in Canberra.

This garden contains replicas or small versions of buildings you might see in and surrounding an old English village. The buildings are only about 30cms high. This place conjures up all sorts of imaginary thoughts as you wander around. Here is an image of a gentleman absorbed in the wonders of Russian architecture in miniature. It gives you an idea of the scale.

Canon EOS 5D Mark III 1/320 second F/7.1 ISO 100 105 mm

I will respond to your kind comments as soon as I can. Thanks for dropping by!

Belle composition et belle profondeur de champ qui donnent l'illusion d'un véritable village !

I've been in England a few times ; one of the first things that took my eyes at my first stay was a beautiful english garden.(I was 16) Very pretty view here, but the tulips remind me Holland.

What a beautiful garden. I love such those lovely tulip as this. Beautiful colors and nice bokeh. Being there, I feel like as if I'd be in a fairyland. Amazing shot. Have a nice day. :)
