Fountain In Bloom

This fountain sits in the Italian promenade of the Butchart Gardens.  What I love about this image is the contrast of the stark black fountain surrounded by a sea of colors as well as the crystal clear drops of water frozen in time.

The gardens were originally a pet project of Jennie Butchart; the wife of prominent cement mogul Robert Butchart. Started in 1909, different areas of the gardens have different themes such as Japanese tea garden, Italian garden, and rose garden. This garden is still owned and managed by descendants of the Butchart family.  Now a national treasure, the gardens are a major tourist attraction and source of pride for the island of Victoria 

If you are interested in exploring the possibility of ordering a print, please contact me for details. All photographs are limited to 500 reproductions.

Notes: These are low resolution images and I apologize for the watermark signature on my photographs as I feel it detracts from enjoying the image. However, with the ease of image piracy on-line they are necessary evils. You may also want to read my color post as images can be very different from what you see on the monitor.
