Queen Elizabeth Park,British Columbia.,a paradise in the middle of the town.
Queen Elizabeth Park is a municipal park located in Vancouver, British Columbia, on Little Mountain (elevation approximately 168 metres (550 feet) above sea level). Its surface was scarred at the turn of the twentieth century when it was quarried for its rock, which served to build Vancouver's first roadways.
Prentice Bloedel's $1.25 million covered the open reservoirs and built the country's first geodesic conservatory surrounded by covered walkways, lighted fountains and a magnificent sculpture (Knife Edge - Two Piece) by modern artist Henry Moore. The Bloedel Floral Conservatory opened on December 6, 1969 amidst much jubilation with its many climatic zones, displaying a huge variety of plants and a superb selection of free flying tropical birds.
There are several other attractions in the park. These include a pitch and putt golf course, a disc golf course,tennis courts, a lawn bowling club, and a restaurant.
Several episodes of the long running TV show Stargate SG-1 were filmed here.
You can see here the location of the park.

Γεια σου Δάνο,
Υπέροχο πάρκο σε άριστη κατάσταση πολύ καλά συντηρημένο και όχι σαν τα δικά μας (βλέπε: πάρκο Αντώνη Τρίτση κλπ.). Όμορφη σύνθεση με πολλά είδη φυτών σε πολλούς υπέροχους χρωματισμούς.
Καλό βράδυ, Βασίλης.

The different graphical shapes of the trees are assets to the composition. The point of view takes our eyes toward the trees in the background which is giving depth to the photo. The good luminosity is enhancing the colors of the scenery. have a nice day.

Can't be much more springtime than this.
you've captured the essence of the time of the year almost like a chines painting the only thing missing is some chines calligraphy and a poem
Jakab (3867) 2009-05-30 14:39
an idyllic scene with blossoming trees and many shades of green. Even the sky is optimal: deep blue with rhapsodic white clouds, like a piece of Pradise.
belido (19934) 2009-06-01 5:01
so many beautiful trees in the same garden. I can smell that freshness. The photo has very good saturated colors and bright. I like this a lot. Great job!
vinicio (23423) 2009-06-01 7:00
The alternative title maybe "Tribute to the Spring" :)

What a lovely spring day you have captured, the azeala and the flowing tree beautifully tell us it's spring; the sky is still the star.
