The image above was captured using my iPhone 5s, with the panoramic feature of the built in camera. It is of one of my favorite areas of the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, the Italian Gardens. Sure, the house is lovely, and I could spend hours walking among the flowers of the other gardens and the conservatory, but it’s the Italian Gardens where I usually find myself fascinated by the water, the reflections the colors, the angles of the walls, the house in the background etc.
It’s also the kind of place where you just never know what you’re going to see as you walk around the ponds. 😉
So if you do make the trip, by all means tour the house, it’s amazing. But don’t forget about the various gardens and everything else the property has to offer for any photographers as well!
