Ruthven Garden Statue
This garden statue is in the Ruthven Park National Historic Site. It was the former country estate of five generations of the Thompson family. Consisting of approximately 1500 acres, it is situated along the banks of the Grand River between the towns of York and Cayuga. The estate house is beautiful and can be seen here https://villagephotographer.wordpress.com/2012/06/07/ruthven/ .
Here are an other couple of shots at Ruthven, south of Brantford. The main house is very impressive and has undergone major renovations.
The back entrance to the main house has this wonderful arched window and the Peonies were in bloom.
Both shots are 3 exposure HDR, photomatix, photoshop, topaz, lightroom
