    This is so intricate – the work that must have gone into planning it, and the work that went/goes into maintaining it then and now. It’s an incredible sight, and you’ve taken a beautiful photograph of it.

  • Thank you so much! I can’t imagine how much work goes into maintaining it… and this was only a small portion of it!
