A walk through Monet’s garden at Giverny (1)

Monet’s garden is characterized by a natural, seemingly informal beauty and a tranquil atmosphere, despite the constant stream of visitors.  The large expanse of water reflects the weeping foliage of the surrounding trees and contributes significantly to the peaceful ambience.

In this selection and the next attention is given to the ‘impressionist’ feel rather than to sharply focused botanical details.  Occasionally, during processing, a touch of watercolour filter has been applied to assist the desired effect.

        Oh, now I wish we had got there. Une autre fois! We were on our way in a mini tour and if I recall, my step father got fed up with the traffic, the way the driver was driving and the lateness of our departure! So we all jumped out, somewhere near Invalides, which was a totally unexpected delight for us – gorgeous – with Paris fashion week in full swing! Beautiful photos Louis! 🙂

  3. Oh my gosh! Stunning. Thank you for taking me to this wonderful place.

  4. Thanks Elena. I hope you enjoy the second instalment too!
