  1. Wonderful photo Merisi, with beautiful colors and reflections. You can sell this as a postcard!

  2. Just stunning. Merisi, what are those tall trees, are they some kind of Leyland Cypress tree?

    1. I checked them out this morning: Linden (Lime) trees!
      This is a Baroque garden, a period when man felt that nature needed some embellishing. ;-)

  3. Fantastic reflections in this wonderful place. Great photo!
