Photograph 3 - View of Nelumbo Pond, Adelaide Botanic Gardens


4000 x 6000 pixels, digital photograph.

The Nelumbo Pond is one of the most popular features of the Adelaide Botanic Gardens. It is sometimes entirely covered with large water lilies, but not at the time of this photograph. Here, much of the surface of the pond reflects the sky and the plants growing behind it. Several of the water lily leaves have bright globes of water on them. The leaves have a special surface that repels water, and allows small water droplets to combine into larger globules.

I am reminded of the paintings of French Impressionist, Claude Monet, with the overall brightness, along with the combination of floating water lily leaves and reflections of mauve clouds.

Photograph 4 - Fabulous Display


4000 x 6000 pixels, digital photograph.

A bee enters a flower that is part of a fabulous display of healthy plant life growing on the edge of Nelumbo Pond in the Adelaide Botanic Gardens. The Adelaide Botanic Gardens is a marvellous place to walk around in. It generally has a calm, quiet atmosphere that radiates a sense of ‘earthy health’. It contains plant specimens from all over the world. It is a genuine treasure, freely available to every person in Adelaide.
