The building of this park begun in 1900 when the administrative authorities together with the residents tried to transform a part of Trivale Forest into a park for the city, and because it was very close to the town centre (now, after the urbanisation, it’s a 10 minutes walking distance from the city hall). For this aim, the city hall asked the Austrian noble Thedeus Graf Lubenschi for buying trees and other plants for the park. From a document of 16 March 1902 we can see that they bought: 25 pieces of pine tree, 1000 pieces of Australian pine, 100 pieces of white pine, 25 pieces of Cembra pine, 100 pieces of spruce, 20 pieces of wild olive tree and 100 pieces of sycamore. Also, the city hall has spent an important sum of money for expropriations in order to enlarge the surface of the park.
In 1903, the architect E. Redont made a facelift plan for the park and ordered more trees from Austria and France.
Ten years later, another renewal was made by another architect from Bucharest, Pinard.
Today is the largest natural park of the city with minimal artificial facilities and a small old church in the middle.

The bookmark format works perfectly with the tree framing the bench. Excellent rendering of the tones and textures. I like the atmosphere very much. Interesting note as well. Thanks for sharing.

The red bench is very well placed and fits the autumn atmosphere perfectly. I almost get an impression it's part of an installation placed here by an artist just for this part of the year. The vertical shape of the photo also suits the composition perfectly.

Hello Daniel - I like this a lot, the composition and narrow vertical framing is very well balanced with the empty benches leading us into the autumn forest. The colours are lovely and the textures of the thick carpet of fallen leaves very attractive. I think that 'empty bench' images always have a special atmosphere and story behind them, a kind of lonely emptiness or a patient waiting. A poetic shot which works very convincingly. Warm regards rosemary

Another lovely autumnal scene. Great line of treees and the red bench stands out so well contrasting with the yellows and greens. Very well composed - great POV
Enjoy your day

Ciao dear Daniel
Ahh, you are so lucky to have 4 separate seasons to the year. In Australia, we don't really have Autumn - certainly not an Autumn like this, with such wonderful colours. The textures, colours and composition with the lone bench are splendid. Wonderful light control and excellent tight vertical framing. great job.

C'est une photo que l'on voit souvent à l'automne. Je ne sais pas pourquoi les bancs de parc vides et les feuilles mortes attirent autant. C'est très réussi comme cadrage.

A superb composition of great beauty, a stunning POV with this carpet of leaves and these splendid specimens of trees with thick trunk that we see in the foreground, banks are an inviting temptation to enjoy the beauty of nature.
Very well done.

Hello Daniel. A beautiful autumn scene. Really perfect. Well seen and realized. The red benches are a perfect addition.

macjake (39235) 2012-10-17 10:15
excellent work with the photo and with the note.
It looks like the city and its governors have placed alot of importance into creating and keeping up with the park.
lovely photo too, full of oranges and reds, mixed with browns. Now all you have to do is get the 2012 version!

This is a clean execellent shot suitable in this format and a pleasure to view. The burst of autumn colors add that all important impact, and the fiery red bench makes all the vital touch. I simply love the vibrancy of colors and the contrast they create to the environment. Fine detail and the fallen leaves drawing out a good effect for the whole scene. Excellent clarity and sharpness. A high quality image and superb autumn scene. Congrast. TFS

Start the fall season, and nature takes on new colors! In this picture you can appreciate your beautiful, in fact, just the beginning of the season! Very interesting the vertical format that enhances the momentum of the trees! Belle also benches suspended on a carpet of yellow leaves!
Best regards and good Sunday! Nino.
