Behind the Sepulveda Dam in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles lies the Japanese Garden. On a recent weekend, I finally had a chance to visit and photograph this beautiful garden.
The central lake reflects the various garden features. At left can be seen the Tea House [click the image for a larger version]. To the right is the face of the adjacent sewage treatment and water reclamation plant. Fortunately the prevailing wind is usually blowing from the west or the north. A breeze from the east can be an ill wind indeed.
Rock garden stepping stones lead to a trellis-covered patio with benches.
Many birds call the gardens home; others sojourn there seasonally.
Rocks reflect off the surface of the water. In the distance a traditional Japanese stone lantern graces the path.
A different style stone lantern perched above a boulder.
