This was taken in Glastonbury, a very cool town full of legend. I actually snapped this photo at the Chalice Well garden.
"The people of old saw the wells as gateways to the spirit world where the veils between human existence and the greater spirit became thinner, and communications could take place with the gods and goddesses of the nature religions.
The Chalice Well is one of the oldest continuously used holy wells in Britain. Archaeology has shown that the Spring was used by prehistoric tribes who inhabited this land, and for the last 2000 years we can be fairly sure that the site has been in constant use. To be at the well head, and drink the water and absorb the atmosphere of the place is truly an inspirational experience."

Nice photo mate, you could prehaps do with cropping out the leaves on the left of the photo if possible. I dunno though, might spoil the positioning of the shot. Reminds me of the Patricia St. John book. In fact it's almost identical. You did really well with the lighting, most photos like this end up being too dark or very noisy. Nice Job.
