I love the colors and composition of this bali garden photo by simone walsh. Dark and exotic despite the fact that it was shot in the day, this most definitely is a garden scene I doubt I'll encounter in the pacific northwest.
And how about this amazing garden photo shot at night by lucinda storms. Again, dark and exotic but in such a different way than the image above. Both so surprising in their own right, and both great reminders that gardens don't have to be just marigolds and pansies.
