Urn & Orchard – Niagara Botanical Gardens

Just a bit under a year ago, I paid a visit to the Niagara Botanical Gardens, in Niagara Falls, Ontario. The Botanical Gardens are also the location of the Niagara Butterfly Conservatory, which was my true destination.

We spent several hours touring the Conservatory and making photos of the many bright butterflies. On leaving, I noticed this urn in the middle of an orchard. It was a flat, but bright day, if that makes sense and the scene became a natural candidate for a monochrome image, which is shown above.

        That’s great! I dabble a little in abstract photography. In fact, I took a lot of photos today. I went to the movies and the building was huge, glass and steel weirdness. 🙂

        so it looks like you were able to find the like button. i wonder if there was some kind of bug? or did you just not find it before? thanks for the likes!

        i do believe you’re right. i changed the theme and there’s a place to put comments, so that should solve the problem. 🙂 thanks for the help. 😀

        You’re welcome. If people don’t let us know, we won’t. I’ve had it happen to me where the photos did not line up with the post. I would never have known if a reader had not told me.
