Pearson Conservatory

St Georges Park is situated in the heart of Port Elizabeth and is the oldest park in South Africa. The park covers 73 hectares and contains an open air theatre, South Africa's oldest Test Cricket venue and lawn bowling club, a swimming pool, the splendid Prince Alfred's Guard Memorial and botanical gardens popular with wedding couples. The Pearson Conservatory in the park was established in 1882 for the cultivation of exotic plants and makes for some nice photos on a calm blue sky day.

  1. Great reflections in the water, a lovely structure and you've captured it beautifully which is tricky with water and so much glass.
    Did you use a filter ?

  2. No filter, just my little Kodak EasyShare entry level digital camera and maybe a bit of luck

  4. Nice shooting, I love to hear when people use point and shoot cameras that make people ask questions and have them do a double take. Just shows you do not NEED a DSLR, but it is nice to have.
