Water has been used in garden design for centuries. Both its sound and its motion provide a lively contrast to the serenity of garden landscapes. Captured here are views of the lower Waterfall Garden from the Japanese island of Keiunto at Chicago Botanic Garden.

Photographed on May 22, 2010.

A gorgeous image of this beautiful waterfall. If you ever go to Japan, check out the beautiful gardens there. It seems that most of the major temples in Kyoto have wonderful gardens associated with them.

There is something both powerful and serene about flowing water.
