Photographer's Note

Today we went to Den Haag for a visit to The Japanese Garden in Clingendael Park. Unfortunally 1000's of other people had the same idea ;-))
Still we could enjoy this wonderfulplace and share with you one of the most eyecatching features:this redbridge. I just love the contrast between the strong red and of the soft colors of the plants. It take some time to get this pic because it was a very dark day (that's why i choose ISO 800) but the most difficut was to get a moment that there were no people at the bridge!

This gareden was created in the beginning of the 20th century by the former owner of the country estate of Clingendael, Marguérite M. Baroness van Brienen (1871-1939), also called Lady Daisy. Lady Daisy sailed off a number of times by ship to Japan and brought back to the Netherlands a number of lanterns, a water cask, sculptures, the pavilion, the little bridges and several plants. The original design with the serene pond, meandering brook and the winding pathways has remained intact all these years.

The Municipality of The Hague has always taken great care of the Japanese Garden because of its uniqueness and tremendous historical value. The garden was placed on the list of national historical monuments in 2001. Due to its fragility, the garden can be visited only during a short period of the year.
