It’s that famous lily pond again in Monet’s garden in Giverny and once more it’s impossible to get a photo without the hordes of tourists, but I’m also one of them I guess.
Unfortunately there are a few people standing on the bridge which spoils it somewhat, but it is virtually impossible to get a snap without any imposters, as there is a steady stream of visitors filing over the bridge. Personally I think they should block off the bridge for ten minutes every hour to allow unadulterated photos of this magic scene.
Here is a photo I took in the very same pond in Monet’s garden in Giverny earlier this year.
