welcome to my sky...




























if only these were the gates to my estate. but alas, this happens to be the entrance to the planting fields arboretum italian blue pool garden. wow, that's a mouthful!
I like how the gates decorate the sky. don't they compliment the soft clouds perfectly?

Splendid composition in that first image, Lily, a fine Sky Watch entry. The gardens remind «Louis» a bit of Filoli.

Great capture of the wrought iron against the sky. I love the photo of the arboretum grounds, too.
