Good Morning Everyone,
This is a view from the garden of 'Mulino di Firenze', across the Arno to an undeveloped part of the old mill. The gardens are lovely, with plants and flower containers perfectly in keeping with the area.
Mulino di Firenze is now a beautiful hotel but it was once an old water mill. The mill run is now a safe swimming pool, whilst the 'working parts' of the mill can be seen under parts of the glass floor in the hotel.
It is a place full of character, perfectly in keeping with other historical features to be seen in Florence.
Thank you for your interest. Have a lovely day, Bev :-)

Good morning Bev,
Lovely view of the gardens in such a pleasant and soft sunlight. I love the peace and tranquillity of the place. The composition is really good: nice inclusion of the plant in the foreground, thanks for sharing!

Sounds a splendid place to stay away from the busy city; I assume you did? I like the framing and the inclusion of the impressive cactus. Also the long perspective over the grounds where there is much to see. The image benefits from a pleasing soft light and colours and very good clarity.

J'aime beaucoup cet endroit. Très loin des lieux très touristiques mais avec beaucoup de charmes typiquement italien dans le fond et la forme. J'aime beaucoup la texture de l'image.

An unique composition of the garden with a deep blue skyline background and kept a cactus with a tub at the left corner of the frame, very nicely maintained the rule of photography. Color and sharpness are quiet well.
with deep regards and thanks,

it appears that the garden has been sympathetically restored using the warm toned local materials.
I do like the giant potted plant that dominates the FG.
Best wishes Les.

Hello Bev, thank you for the welcome, it is good to be back.
I like the way that you have used the agave in its pot in the fg, reminding us of the type of climate in this part of the world.
A lovely scene; this looks like a great place to stay.
Plenty of detail in the bg to enjoy.

proprio oggi ero a Firenze, ci vado ogni settimana per lavoro, ma continua a piacermi ancora.
Bella questa tua composizione, il vaso in terracotta è ben posizionato e lascia lo spazio per vedere il panorama sullo sfondo, compresa la piccola cascata dell'Arno.

lovely composition with the pot with agave making a nice shape in the foreground. Great weather day, I can imagine quite typical for Tuscany. Nice view opens just behind the plant. There is something very relaxing in this scene.
Very well done,
