As long as I can think back, my father has been planting his garden. With great sense of style he arranges plants, stones and some decorative objects that please the eye and give a sense of harmony. Combining elements from japanese gardening with traditional as well as foreign plants in pots and flower beds there are many places in the garden that are worth more than one look.
Yesterday I spent some time at twilight out there, mainly occupied with checking a camera body for signs of focusing errors, and one of the targets in the garden were those stones. The raw file needed only little attention, mainly darkening to compensate the expose-to-the-right effect and gave a small, simple but (for me) impressive rendering of the blue hour.
