Swamp Cyprus Reflections

Spent a wonderful day with @nickspicsnz, wondering around the beautiful Ayrlies Gardens. The reflections in this pond really caught my eye with the strange root systems from the trees.

Ayrlies was created by Beverley McConnell and her late husband Malcolm. It is named after the family farm in Scotland. The Garden began in 1964 with a 1.2 hectare bare paddock of heavy coastal clay, expanding to 4.8 hectares in 1980 with the addition of three large ponds. In the millennium year 14 hectares of swamp flats below the homestead were transformed into a wetland area with a 3.3 hectare lake, providing a habitat for many wading birds.
As I was scrolling down I saw this shot and thought ... Looks like Ayrlies 'knees'.... been to this garden several times it is fantastic.. neat shot..
