Garden of Colours
Love the beauties of the creation of gardens around the world and how I indugle myself into this Garden of Eden.
As we look around the world today, there is a lot of destruction on the environment whether it is caused by burning of the forest, deforestation for timber, land clearance for new developments for housing, extension or widening of the roads or simple destroying the nature without acknowledging the purpose of the natural environment. The natural environment has a value and it is the nature that is around us that we enjoy.
Nature is an integral part of our lives. Though the mother nature provides us with all its abundance of beauty and glory, we humans many times tend to forget and don’t appreciate the blessing she bestows on us. The nature keeps changing from season to season, from minute to minute. We see the sea in its bright blue in the morning and by noon it has become an emerald green hue. Even the colours of the sky keep changing throughout the day, whether it be sunrise in the morning or sunset in the evening, the nature truly keeps unfolding its beauty in front of our very own eyes. As famous Albert Enstein quoted “Look deep into nature, then you will understand everything better”.
Whether we humans are mesmerised by the works of the artists on nature, by photographs, man-made creation or simply in its’ natural glory we tend to enjoy in whatever form it is presented to us but to really appreciate it, we need to look profoundly deep into nature, then well know why and appreciate it more.
Destruction of the natural world, whether, we cut down a tree, burn the forest or even an oil spill that despoils the ocean, we all need to remember that we are destroying the most precious inheritance we can leave behind for our future generations to enjoy. It is even more essential that we do our best to preserve it for the future.
One of my many passions that I do whenever I am travelling, is taking photographs of gardens. The garden can incorporate both natural and man-made materials. Some of the gardens, whether it is set in a planned space, outdoors or set aside for the display or cultivation, it certainly brings enjoyment of plants and other forms of nature to all humans to enjoy. It is always fascinating to see many plants that are colourful when they open their beauty on a timely manner, where it is for a short or longer period of time. However, it is not only the colours that they spread out for us to admire but it is the scent that capture one of our five senses and that is our “smelling sense” as we try to stop and figure out where that smell is coming from. This does create a garden of eden for us on this planet, not only on one particular area but spread throughout the world which we need to travel to enjoy it.
With this passion of mine, I have put together a collection of photographs of gardens both natural and man-made in various place around the world for people to enjoy.

From Personal Perspective: As we continue to travel in our lives, there are places that we enjoy, whether it is the buildings, beaches, coastlines, night-life, cities, food or whatever it may be that capture our interests, but for me, it is the nature where I find peace and self-satisfaction.
