My Butchart Gardens photo of the Sunken Garden is on the front of the Gardens 2012 Calendar. There are about a million of these out there so maybe you might have seen one or maybe not, but it’s always fun to see your own photography published in print. This is actually my 2nd photo from this scene to make it onto a front cover. The other version was published as a front and back cover wraparound on a Japanese magazine but I don’t have a copy of that one unfortunately.
Butchart Gardens is one of my favorite places in the world and a definite must-see if visiting Canada or the Pacific Northwest. When my mom and I visited in 2009, we spent nearly 10 hours there, getting there at opening time when this image was made, then leaving mid-day and came back after dinner to shoot until closing time at night. We had a great time.
