The Montreal Botanical Garden (French: Jardin botanique de Montréal) is a large botanical garden in Montreal, Quebec, Canada comprising 75 hectares (190 acres) of thematic gardens and greenhouses. It was designated a National Historic Site of Canada in 2008 as it is considered to be one of the most important botanical gardens in the world due to the extent of its collections and facilities.
god, this brings me back to earlier times in your gallery, when you used to post shots like this often. I don't remember if they were of the same place, but I do remember a number of shots of huge garden/tree areas, with bridges and water, and how you captured their light, their greens, their tranquility, richness, etc. Wonderful yellow-infested light here, like you basted it with honey and butter. Lovely contrasts of strong light and deep shadow. And the people add gentle dots of human life The composition is wonderful too---with the heavy shadowed trees on the left and so much light on the right. And a house sneaking through. Beautiful.
(See how the house seems to blend into the surrounding? That kind of blending influenced Frank Lloyd Wright, who used Japanese low-and-simple lines as a great motivator for his house architecture.)
