We have visited and photographed gardens all over the world. It occurred to us that some of the most amazing “gardenscapes” we’d ever seen were at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Check it out:
The vivid colors and “flower” features gave the illusion of a strikingly landscaped garden in full bloom.
The fish only adds to the sense of an over-the-top “gardenscape”.
Sea anemones are known as the “flowers of the seas” and named after anemone flowers. The sea version was actually thought to be carnivorous animals, but, recently, the sea anemone’s genetic makeup indicates a half-animal, half-plant.
Is the marine life in these large aquarium tanks chosen based on a color scheme? All the colors work so well together…
…and how about these patterns and textures?
We love gardens, and these Technicolor marine scenes were just as beautiful and a joy to photograph as any garden that we’ve visited.
