I love trees but there are few natural wooded areas in Namibia. A walk in the Government (Tintenpalast) Gardens may not be a walk in natural woodland but the large trees are beautiful. Here you can see young couples enjoying each other's company in peace and quiet, mums and dads playing with their children, students sitting in the shade with books open.
The ‘Tintenpalast’ is the seat of the Namibian parliament. It was designed by Gottlieb Redecker and built between 1912 and 1913 to house the German colonial government and bureaucracy. The word ‘Tintenpalast’ translates to ‘ink palace’, and is so named for the vast amount of ink that was used within its walls. The surrounding gardens were laid out in the 1930s, and include an olive grove and a bowling green.

I really like how you've framed the view with the pinkish stairs nicely positioned slightly on the side & in between those big trees. the contrast between the dark tree trunks and the lawn, the lights/shades are attractive to the eye!

J'aime beaucoup cette photo pour le graphisme des arbres, les couleurs de l'herbe et des escaliers. La lumière est exceptionnelle et joue avec les ombres de belle façon.
