This is the third of my little series taken at the Butchart Gardens,Victoria,Vancouver Island,British Columbia,Canada during the Christmas season 2009. Every year the Gardens are lit by hundreds of thousands of lights , forming a truly magical experience for many thousands of visitors. This view shows the Rose Garden (circular area at right centre, with the Rose motif in the middle), and behind it are the dining room,restaurant,and sections of other gardens.
The Gardens are a National Historic Site of Canada and have been blooming since 1904.
Taken December 28, 2009, with a Fuji S100FS camera, 4 second exposure, F2.8, ISO 200, and a tripod.
