Photographer's Note

This picture is made in the baroque gardens of Drottningholm Palace ("Queen's islet") . In the evening sun and the trees hid these reflexes could only watch in lakes ...

About Baroque Gardens we know that is the oldest part and was created at the end of the 17th century under the direction of Hedwig Eleonora. The father and son Tessin led the project that created a baroque garden right outside the main palace, flanked by thick tree avenues. The many statues scattered throughout this area were created by the artist Adrian de Vries. The baroque garden was neglected along with the rest of the grounds during the 19th century, but was restored in the 1950s and 1960s on the initiative of Gustaf VI Adolf of Sweden.

Moreover, the palace is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
