Window to the Otways

Some people confuse the image of the stream inside the window to the forests in my birth country. However, there is a distinctive feature that the attentive observer will not overlook: the presence of fern trees which give a prehistoric look to Australian subtropical forests. The facade belongs to the Prado Museum, the most important art gallery in Spain.  

The beauty of these forests, with their abundance of species and fauna, causes a fascination for them that grows inside like the moss that covers the rocks of this stream. One would sometimes like to open a window, jump in and get lost in the leafy foliage of these wonderful places.

 [Note: I show the detail of the grass sprouting up on the sidewalk so that the sharpness in the depth of field of the image can be appreciated, from the very first close-up to the end (achieved using 4 photographs with different focus point)]
