I think the abstract qualities of this have great potential for a painting Carol.

Carol, I love the different perspective. The underside of these flowers are so expressive! Yes, do paint these. It's calling to be painted! :)

Thank you Maureen, PERUGINA and Kathy.
I do think it would be a hard sell to paint this successfully and get it to be so convincing as a reflection off water. I will have to think on this a bit.

Oh I really like this, I bet it is just gorgeous larger.

This is dizzying in its complexity. What a wonderful, unusual perspective.
Aren't Longwood Gardens magnificent! :thumbsup: Hope you have more lovely photos to show us from there. :D

Thank you Sylvia for your kind words. I do have another photo (http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=449246)in the forum from Longwood. We have a season pass for Longwood as we are always looking for places to go to photograph and the seasonal progression throughout the year is dramatic.
Actually we are off to Winterthur this afternoon with cameras. Have you been there. That is lovely too.

I'll check out that other photo shortly. Lucky you. I used to live about 20 miles east of Longwood and we always went there on Easter in our finery. :D
I've been to Winterthur as well. It is really a lovely place.
Guess you'll be going to the Wyeth Museum in Chadds Ford while you are in that area too, eh. ;)

I did the Wyeth Museum a couple of years ago. It was very interesting.
Actually I live right next to Valley Forge National Park. We are close enough to be able to walk into the park if we wish.

I guess I thought you were visiting in the area because of your flag and La La Land location in your title. :lol:
We used to go to Valley Forge at the end of the school year for an "educational" field trip when I was in grade school many, many years ago. ;)

No. I live in the US now. I work for Drexel University as a scientist and lecturer at the Queen Lane Campus, or better known as Drexel Country Club :D I teach medical students and PhD's. I am Australian, ex-pat really and have made my home in the States.
