That is such a pretty shot which works on many levels. Great colors, a composition that works, and a photo which just oozes a tranquil feeling. It would work really well as a photo in an official brochure advertising the gardens. It would also make a great wall mural, maybe in a dentist's office to help calm down the patients.

Super Shot Fred. I've been there many times and you've caught the essence of the park.

It'd take more than that to help me in a dentists office though, good as it is...!!!

Buchart Gardens is an absolute dream place to shoot. Everywhere you turn is a postcard just waiting for you to press the shutter release. I remember this particular spot quite well. back in 2004 we visited Vancouver for two weeks and spent one day shooting at Buchart Gardens. It was memorable for me in being the last trip I recorded on film. Purchased my first DSLR shortly after returning from that trip and have not bought a roll of film since.

If for no other reason than a chance to shoot it all digitally that was one trip I would re-do in a heart-beat. What a wonderful place to visit.

I've never been there but from this image, others and y'alls comments I know I would like visiting that park very much.

What a great photo, Fred!

I haven't been there but the Japanese Garden in Portland, OR that Harj mentions, would be my first choice to spend a peaceful, contemplative day in, anywhere I can think of, with or without a camera.

I will be visiting Buchart Gardens more often now.
My daughter is going to the University of Victoria.
A perfect reason for a trip to Victoria and go to the Gradens

Thanks again for the replys
