Portland: Japanese Garden (part 2)

My look at the Portland Japanese Garden continues. Part 1 was yesterday, where I mixed wide shots with macro.


More of the same today - hope you don't mind the lack of textual narrative.

I love watching fish, and it's especially nice when they're not shy. It wouldn't be a Japanese garden without fish!






Back to the shady, mossy coolness...













The "Natural Garden" was by far my favorite part of this visit...


...so steep!

I can't resist bark!



(I really can't...)


Finding a bench for a quiet moment of contemplation, the low arched fence of split bamboo caught my eye...




But there is so much to take in here, you can't help but let your gaze wander...


This place is where I captured the splashes:


Some last details as we made our way to the garden's exit...





Such a peaceful garden, even when brimming with people. I'd love to come here when it's nearly empty and just sit for as long as I could...

Those tree branches are like poetry.
Wonderful photographs

Absolutely beautiful garden! Would love to explore it more thoroughly next time we're back in that area.
