Japan in Holland


The Japanese Garden at the nearby Clingendael estate is only open for one month of the year. It was created in the early part of the 20th century and the layout has been preserved. The fragile plants are the reason for the limited access. Even though it was fairly crowded when we visited, this shot portrays the tranquility that the garden is intended to inspire.

A beautiful spot. Your photograph is excellent because it generates the feelings you expressed so well in your comments about the scene. Nice shot.

I have 1 baby raccoon today and a pile of poop!

I love this photo. Very pretty and it's different than most landscape shots.
