Stone Archway at Winterthur
A few months ago I visited Winterthur, the home of the late Henry Francis du Pont, a philanthropist and horticulturist. The 1000 acre estate has been open to the public for 60 years.
I came across this stone archway in one of the gardens. I liked its construction as well as how it framed the foliage on the other side.
I thought the imperfection and discoloration of the stone gave it character and showed age. I also found the visual contrast between the stone and the foliage to be quite interesting.
I used iSplash to exaggerate the contrast, I hope I did not over do it.
Let me know what you think.
