Scented Colonnade by Michael John

Currently unavailable for purchase

This peaceful old-fashioned garden scene depicts white and pink climbing roses hanging on a wooden colonnade.

At the end of the pathway is a traditional birdbath and a statue of a siren.

These spring blooms were captured at the Australian Inland Botanic Gardens, Wentworth, NSW, Australia.

Canon 400D, as is.

I live in Australia and enjoy bushwalking in the great outdoors, especially the world heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park.

My photographic interests are pretty much related to Australian landscapes, rustic Australia, historic Australia, Australian wildlife, flora, fauna, birds, etc. Guess I love the country I was born and live in.
