Monochrome Monday

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.
