The awesome patterns of Villa Taranto, Italy
… can you spy Villa Taranto in the background?
Don’t forget to pay a visit to Villa Taranto if you pass by Pallanza, Lago Maggiore, Italy.
… the most elegant botanical garden I have visited, together with Terra Nostra on Sao Miguel, Azores, Portugal. Click on pictures to magnify.
Pictures shot with Nikon 16-35 mm f/4 or Nikon 70-200 mm f/2.8 VR-II on D800
love the abaxial side of the leaf (haha) and the little flowers below it
That’s exactly a wonderful abaxial side of these floating giant plants. I also loved that structure.
