To finish this winter view of the Chinese garden of the Montreal botanical garden here is "The Stone Boat"

Set against a row of Scotch pines and larches that form a natural barrier, the Stone Boat seems almost to float on Lotus Pond. Here, once again, the materials emphasize both contrast and harmony, with the water (yin) in the pond lapping at the stone (yang) of the structure.

The Stone Boat is a much smaller version of the marble boat built at the Summer Palace in Beijing for the Empress Cixi, a powerful political figure in the late Qing dynasty (1644-1911). The small terrace in the "bow" is the ideal spot from which to admire the water lilies on the surface of Lotus Pond, while the upper "deck" in the "stern" is delightfully cool during the hot summer months.

I just came back from work after moving half of our servers to a different location it's 4h30 am... I'm going to sleep now and I'll try to be more active after a great night of sleep.

I wish you a wonderful day.

I love the smooth texture of the snow, adds a nice flowing feel to the image. Nicely composed with the rock taking up most of the left side but not dominating the whole picture. Very pleasant capture, well done...and have a good sleep!

Magnifique vue bien composée.
Bonne journée.

Excellente photos bien composition avec un profondeur de champ permettant d'avoir les deux structures nettes; bloque de pierre et le batiment.
Merci pour le partage.

Très belle composition et excellent POV Luc. Belle lumière juste assez éclatante sur le devant de l'architecture.
Bien fait!

Hi Luc, an other brilliant capture , very well composed and framed.
Best regards

Great one Luc.Nice to see it this time from outside

Hi Luc. A lovely way to finish the series. Well composed, good clour and lovely light and shadow. TFS,

Many thanks for your comment on ‘Mili Mili and Fog’

Excellent composition, nicely presented and showing great restraint in keeping colors/contrasts natural! A good picture doesn't need enhancements, as you proved here!

Tiens? Un rock avec des cheveux! Ce doit être Rock Voisine! Il faut bien admettre que cet artiste a toujours eu soin de sa chevelure :)
Bon assez... On se calme...
J'ai reconnu immédiatement le style typique du pavillon Chinois!
Faudra bien que j'aille au Jardin Botanique cet été! Jen ,Y vais pas souvent malgré la beauté de l'endroit! Depuis le temps que j'ai ma Canon et je ne le lui ai même pas présenté! C'est un scandale!
Belle courbe en harmonie entre le batiment et le rock aux cheveux branchus :)

Luc bro, you've got wonderful shots from botanical garden. Lovely composition and colors. :) Vandana
