Urn & Orchard – Niagara Botanical Gardens
Just a bit under a year ago, I paid a visit to the Niagara Botanical Gardens, in Niagara Falls, Ontario. The Botanical Gardens are also the location of the Niagara Butterfly Conservatory, which was my true destination.
We spent several hours touring the Conservatory and making photos of the many bright butterflies. On leaving, I noticed this urn in the middle of an orchard. It was a flat, but bright day, if that makes sense and the scene became a natural candidate for a monochrome image, which is shown above.

Now that’s the type of monochrome I aspire to – wonderful.
This one was just a ‘natural’. I saw it as monochrome as I made it. Thank you.

i was just looking at that photo and thought that you had made it a lot crisper and sharper that it really would be! you constantly surprise me! hi, nice to meet you. i really like your work! 🙂
Thank you, I’m experimenting in many forms of photography.
That’s great! I dabble a little in abstract photography. In fact, I took a lot of photos today. I went to the movies and the building was huge, glass and steel weirdness. 🙂
I like your work too, but I don’t see anywhere to like or comment?
so it looks like you were able to find the like button. i wonder if there was some kind of bug? or did you just not find it before? thanks for the likes!
I had to open the actual post, rather than scroll through them. You have some beautiful art!
Oh thank you so much! 😁
I wonder what’s up with needing to open the post.i’ll have to look into that!
I thinks it’s the nature of the theme you are using.
i do believe you’re right. i changed the theme and there’s a place to put comments, so that should solve the problem. 🙂 thanks for the help. 😀
You’re welcome. If people don’t let us know, we won’t. I’ve had it happen to me where the photos did not line up with the post. I would never have known if a reader had not told me.
Do they still have the Floral Clock up there?
We visited in July, and the gardens were absolutely breathtaking!
Yes, it’s still there.
