Arboretum - opening festival - part 3

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 15 February 2013 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

The big picture. A view from the terrace looking out over the grassy amphitheatre at the National Arboretum. I got this shot from near the Village Centre. On the far side you can see a function and wedding centre - the Reflective Pavilion. It looks like a piece of the Sydney Opera House!

This shot closes my set on the Arboretum. In a future series, I will show you some of the tree plantings. There are 100 forests in the Arboretum with over 40,000 trees.

Next week, I begin a series on the National Multicultural Festival. I will have photos of dance and music shows; and a few walking around shots from among the crowds.

Before I read your comments, I was just thinking that the building in the distance looked a bit like the opera house! Looks like it's going to be a great venue for summer concerts & other events...

The octopi really soar here, like denizens of some other planet, love the use of wide angle
to get the sense of immense space here, the lounging looks best in this one so far !~
