An Eco Estate

reflection on a man made lake
these images were captured during a visit to a local residential estate,
where the aim is to maintain an eco friendly environment.  They have
used indigenous trees and grasses - the objective being to invite the
local birds, insects, frogs and whatever else, to inhabit the space(s).
a collage of some of the scenery on the estate - the round "building" is used
by estate management- not sure for what purpose, but I love the shape
and the great architectural detailing - including the shadows ...
a wider view of the lake
one of the windows and the great shadows around it ...
a dead tree, left in place to add character

A winding staircase
leads to a secret room—what
key unlocks the door?


Shadows everywhere:
If Wisteria…
Shadowy descanso

oh my, your work is just stunning! all the shots of the estate were gorgeous but i especially love the one with the branches shadowing the lake, very cool how the view behind it dips and rises again. fantastic work!
