Tranquility..................



~ Adelaide - Himeji Gardens ~

The lake or S'ensui forms the heart of these tranquil gardens
created in the south parklands to honour our city's
sister city Himeji Japan.



~ A quiet place for reflecting on reflections ~

Gorgeous photos with fantastic reflections, Dianne. Japanese gardens are so beautiful and water plays such an important role in them... Love them.

Beautiful images Dianne. I love the softness of the foliage - both in colour and texture - against the solid but less vibrant tones of the rocks. That last one is also a gem! Happy weekend.

...lovely vibrant colour. I really enjoy Japanese Gardens and I have been lucky to visit this one a few years ago.

What a nice counterpoint to the Adelaide Botanic Gardens! And so green considering it's midsummer!!

what a beautiful place
I can see myself sitting on the stone bench and enjoying every moment
I really like the last shot of the wild grass

Japanese gardens are the most beautiful, and your captures of this one are amazing. Awesome shadows for you to shoot. Each one is so pretty. You really had the time of day the the position of the sun working in your favor. These are lovely. genie

I love Japanese gardens, little oases of peace in a turbulent world.

WHEN YOU SEE THE SHADOWS DANCE

When you see the shadows dance,
Be it Mexico or France,
You may join the shadow fun,
Dancing till the day is done!
