Rip Van Winkle Gardens…


This is another place that I always wanted to visit.

It is located in Jefferson Island, La and the gardens were built around the Joseph Jefferson Mansion that was built in 1870.  The Jefferson family owned the salt mines that were located in the lake next to the property. There is a lot of history there so if you are a history buff it s worth your time to google it.

By this time, I was much more comfortable shooting, largely because I had more time to study and prepare. It’s evident in my pics because they look much more high quality then previous ones. I also won a couple of more Pixoto awards with some of these.
