Moon Bridge, Portland Japanese Garden
Bridge to Eden, Portland, Oregon
I loves Gardens. Always have. I regularly maintained a flower garden in my youth and am an avid gardener today. My wife, daughter and I live in a little craftsman style home in Downtown Bend, Oregon. We live on a small urban lot where I’ve managed to
carve out a wonderful backyard garden, filled with perennial flowers and tomato plants. When I am not on the road pursuing landscape photographs, I usually work from my home office. My backyard garden is always a welcome reprieve from the digital world of computers and the internet.
To be clear, I love all gardens, not just my garden. When I travel, I seek out famous gardens in the the vicinity. Arguable the most wonderful garden I’ve experienced is the Portland Oregon Japanese Garden. Arguably the most amazing Japanese garden outside of….Japan, the PDX Japanese garden is simply fantastic. It is always remarkable but it is especially stunning in autumn. I’ve visited the Japanese Garden many times over the last five years, mostly seeking fortuitous fall color timing under the branches of the Famous Japanese Maple Tree located in the garden. Last fall, I had an epic landscape photography day which culminated at the PDX Japanese Garden. I captured some magical shots of The Japanese Maple Tree and was then drawn to the garden’s iconic Moon Bridge. Fall color was absolutely erupting in the garden. I searched for compositions involving the Moon Bridge and knew I had found a winner when I stumble upon this composition, inviting the viewer across the bridge to Portland’s own Garden of Eden.
I love the leading lines , textural variations and the kaleidoscope of color in this new fine art print of the Portland Japanese Garden. The large prints of this image are simply stunning and are sure to be a favorite for lovers of Portland’s Japanese Garden!
