FAA WATERCOLOR MARK DOES NOT APPEAR ON FINAL SALES
While attending a photo-shoot at the famous Westbury Gardens, located in Westbury, New York on Long Island. I came across this brillant colored fall tree that was leaning into the lake but just hanging over it and not touching it. I photographed this picture in November as the trees were showing their final colors for the year and was able to capture the tree hanging over and reflecting off the Westbury Gardens Lake. Old Westbury Gardens, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is the former home of John S. Phipps, his wife, Margarita Grace Phipps and their four children. Completed in 1906 by the English designer, George A. Crawley, the magnificent Charles II-style mansion is nestled amid 200 acres of formal gardens, landscaped grounds, woodlands, ponds and lakes. Westbury House is furnished with fine English antiques and decorative arts from the more than fifty years of the family's residence. Today, Westbury Gardens welcomes visitors of all ages for guided tours of Westbury House and Gardens, in-depth tours of the formal gardens, school visits, children's programs and events, family programs, museum exhibits, classic car shows, indoor and outdoor classical concerts, summer pop concerts, slide lectures, book signings, horticultural demonstrations and workshops, Scottish Games, botanical arts and gardening classes, and Master Gardener and Educator-led Talks and Tours of topics relating to horticulture, art, history, design and architecture.
