Artist's Description

As described on the website of The Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens, this scene shows the 18th-century French stone tempietto and statue, “Love, the Captive of Youth,” encircled by “French Lace” roses. I cannot positively identify the magnificent tree in the background on the left, but I was close enough that I can be sure it’s not a weeping willow. It reminds me of an Australian willow (Geijera parviflora) I’ve seen at South Coast Botanic Garden. If anyone knows, please leave a comment! (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 9-18mm zoom at 18mm [36mm in full-frame 35mm equivalent], f/8, 1/200 sec., ISO 200, early afternoon sun, handheld)
