Spring Gazebo Pastel Effect
Photograph - Phototography Photomanipulation
Beautiful scene of a small unpainted wood gazebo with lots of tall trees with spring leaves emerging. Also lots of green lawns and gorgeous red azalias in full bloom around the base of the gazebo. This version has been given an oil pastel effect. Many more wonderful works can be found in my various galleries, form photographs and photoart to digital creations and abstracts. Thanks for browsing, commenting and most of all for any purchases. Debbie Portwood :D.....................(Wikipedia - A gazebo is a pavilion structure, sometimes octagonal or turret-shaped, often built in a park, garden or spacious public area................Gazebos are freestanding or attached to a garden wall, roofed, and open on all sides; they provide shade, shelter, ornamental features in a landscape, and a place to rest. Some gazebos in public parks are large enough to serve as bandstands or rain shelters...........Gazebos include pavilions, kiosks, alhambras, belvederes, follies, pergolas, and rotundas. Such structures are popular in warm and sunny climates. They are in the literature of China, Persia, and many other classical civilizations, going back to several millennia. Examples of such structures are the garden houses at Montacute House in Somerset, England. The gazebo at Elton on the Hill in Nottinghamshire, thought to date from the late 18th or early 19th century, is a square crenelated, brick and stone tower with an arched opening, part of an extensive system of red-brick walled gardens.There are many misconceptions about gazebos, the most colloquial of these is the idea that the "gazebo scene" in the sound of music is an actual gazebo, sadly it is not.............In contemporary England and North America gazebos are typically built of wood and covered with standard roofing materials, such as shingles. Gazebos can be tent-style structures of poles covered by tensioned fabric. Gazebos may have screens to aid in the exclusion of flying insects...............Temporary gazebos are often set up in the campsites of music festivals in the United Kingdom and North America, usually accompanying tents around it.
