[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A typical Victorian music pavilion overlooks the picnic grounds. It was built in 1896 with the support of a group of women known as the Ladies of Launceston for the cultural improvement of the city’s most popular area to promenade.

Collections of ferns were a popular feature of English Victorian gardens, and in the Cliff Grounds there is a stand of large Tasmanian Tree Ferns Dicksonia Antarctica, which look natural in this sort of environment and blend well with the exotic gardens and the surrounding native bushland. These gardens have evolved for over a century and are still one of the most popular places in the city to relax in and enjoy the nature. The area is laced with pathways for walks that have seasonal contrasts like the daffodil walk in spring and the stroll through the trunks of the giant rhododendron stand, which gives a quite different viewpoint to the smaller specimens that are seen in the average garden.

Hi David,
What a beautiful atmosphere you you create here with this shot. The structure is so cleverly blended with nature amongst all the greenery. Very good POV with nice colours and details.
Thanks for showing,

Another of your lovely photos,thank you. It really is great to be able to sit at the computer and know a trip around some far off place is only a mouse click away.You feel like you want to try to peer around the back of the pavilion to see whats hiding.Again thank you

Hello David

Hello David,
this is another great place to sit and dream, nicely tucked into the trees it must be a great place to overlook the grounds. Very nice POV and excellent composition.

Hi David,
Nicely captured and very well composed. Superb shot and great PP works.

beautiful and amazing, this looks excatly like some of these "pavilions" we had in Vermont when I lived there. Bands would play in them on Sunday afternoons while people sat on blankets or beach chairs to listen. Brings back fond memories..thanks for sharing even if its in a different part of the world! :o)

A lot of work went into the builbing of this pavillon. In those years, there were no electric tools to help. All was hand made.
The photos colors are marvellous.
Well done.

Hello David!

Impressive pavillon considering its age. Very well restored and maintained. The ferns look really big! Difficult here to ballance the luminosity, with the left portion being fully exposed to sunlight.

A beautiful note and thought as usual.

Hi David,

Good pov,dof,colors,details of the pavilion,frame and compo.TFS

beautiful photo, great place to view and sure it is great to listen to a fantastic hard rockin band

Thanx for you comments on DANIEL IN PRAYER


Hi David,
Lovely shot! The colors are amazing, as well as the exposure. The composition is great and the sharpness excellent.
Thank you for your concern,

Hello David,
Those pavillions are always a treat to my eyes! Pity there are not many of them left...
The partial hiding in the vegetation may indicate this one hardly is use for its initial purpose anymore...
Well framed subject, good colours and details!

Looks very romantic, and almost as if nature is taking over. Great shot! Would just love to explore around there!
