Ornamental

This is a Japanese Garden found near the Bloedel Conservatory in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. There is balance here.

According to the Internet, “Kanso is the Japanese equivalent of feng shui which is all about harmonising yourself with your surrounding environment. It’s every hoarder’s nightmare as it means to get rid of clutter and eliminate the non-essential. … The Japanese aesthetic is part of a seven-part principle to achieve total zen.”

Gnarled With Time

I have always had an affinity for trees with character. This tree has seen some rough times in the deserts of Arizona. It is definitely gnarled with time and yet it continues to survive like a fighter. They are the wisps of nature as it continues to grow in perfect balance.

Fountain and Ducks

Fountain And Ducks

I actually took this photo a decade ago. The lush green algae has covered the pond which affectionately is known as the skating pond in winter time at Assiniboine Park, in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. It is technically called the Riley Family Duck Pond and is situated close to the Pavilion and also the Qualico Family Centre.

Young And Old

I love the contrast between the old rose on the right-hand side who has lived her life and is dying now. The beauty on the right is just beginning her life. Roses are just gorgeous even if they come with prickly thorns. It is the way of life – negative and positive making up the whole – isn’t it?

Canada Place

Canada Place

I was across the water at Stanley Park in Vancouver, Canada when I captured this image of Canada Place. I love the sail elements and I also like the peach hue of the sky.

According to Wikipedia, “Canada Place is a building situated on the Burrard Inlet waterfront of Vancouver, British Columbia. It is the home of the Vancouver Convention Centre, the Pan Pacific Vancouver Hotel, and Vancouver’s World Trade Centre.”

Columbia Icefield

Columbian Icefield

Columbia Icefield

My husband and I have been to the Columbia Icefield many times through the years. The first time was back in 1984 and it has receded a lot since the original time. Back then, we were using film cameras. This is image, however, is more recent. I got off the bus tour that goes up and took an image looking far back towards the height and start of the glacier.

According to Wikipedia, “The Athabasca Glacier is one of the six principal ‘toes’ of the Columbia Icefield, located in the Canadian Rockies. The glacier currently loses depth at a rate of about 5 metres per year and has receded more than 1.5 km and lost over half of its volume in the past 125 years.”

Night Hues

I was trying to get an effect with the camera. I have much better shots of the moon that you can check out at my portfolio on Fine Art America. What I like about this photo is the mysterious nature of the full moon amidst the blue hues of the night sky and the trees.

This turtle is happily swimming amongst the fishes. I like the appearance of a sparkle of light off of its mouth.

Sparkling Water and Goose

I could not believe how gorgeous the water turned out around this goose.  The white goose is encircled with huge diamond–shaped sparkling lights.  I love the way the water seems to fold itself over delicately moving as the goose glides along the water.  I also love the multi-pointed sparks of light.  This photo was taken in Freeport, Bahamas in The Garden of the Groves on the Grand Bahamas Island.

Seagull Sticks

Pretty much anywhere you go when you are near water; you will find Seagulls or Gulls. I read that these birds breed on every continent and even on the fringes of Antarctica and the North Arctic which I think is amazing.  I think this speaks to their hardiness and ability to adapt to various climates around the world.  I do realize they are mainly scavengers and so this explains their ability to sustain themselves.  Apparently, they can live a long time and often mate for life.  Their offspring are precocial which means they are able to be mobile upon hatching out of their eggs, among a few other things.  This photo that I took was on a lake which had these large pieces of wood sticking out of the water which I believe is being used to moor boats to near the shoreline.  It looks as if the Seagulls have taken over.  Enjoy!
