Hayward Japanese Tea Garden – The Bridge


Here’s yet another one from the Hayward Japanese Tea Garden.  I loved how the pond looked like glass and how still everything was that day.

  7. How this picture takes me back to Japan itself!

  8. That pond is like a mirror, amazing. Great shot.

  9. I noticed the water straight off – long exposure or was it just a calm day? Almost looks like a diorama it is so perfect.

  10. So wonderfully serene a scene.

  11. I’m in love with this photo… So beautiful.

  12. More peace in this lovely shot

  13. This is absolutely stunning!

  14. I’ve enjoyed your series from the tea garden. I’ve been to Hayward twice, to the Gillig bus factory. It’s interesting but not nearly as lovely as the tea garden.

  15. this place is so beautiful, restful & peaceful.

  16. Beauty, tranquilty, you caught it all Laura. Beautifully done.

  17. I certainly love Japanese gardens. This one looks so tranquil.

    • I love them too. It was nice to find this one closer to home and free. The one in SF is beautiful but it’s riddled with tourists from around the world and always brimming with people. Thank you for your comment!

  18. a sweet image
    reminding me
    of a wonderful place
    i used to cycle to 🙂

  19. A beautiful, peaceful and relaxing image. It’s almost as you have captured an unearthly and transcendent place.

  20. Beautiful Laura. So painterly.

    • Thank you Donna. 🙂 I hadn’t thought of it as a painterly image as it’s an HDR to bring out the clarity but perhaps I should try that with this image.

  21. Your couldn’t ask for a more still pond…WOW!

  22. Very nice. A gentle picture.

  23. Nice atmospher, very soothing
