The Garden of Ninfa (Giardino di Ninfa) is a landscape garden in the territory of Cisterna di Latina, in the province of Latina, central Italy. The park has an area of 105 hectares and is an Italian natural monument. The landscape garden within the park contains medieval ruins, several oaks, cypresses and poplars, grassy meadows, a wide range of exotic plants from various parts of the world, numerous watercourses and a large variety of rambling roses growing over the stone walls of the ruins. The site is run by the Italian foundation Fondazione Roffredo Caetani. It is open to the public at set times from April to November. Nearby towns include Norma and Sermoneta. Ninfa has been described as “the most romantic garden in the world”.

Moyan says: I have been always a free photographer since the beginning. I like the idea to contribute to the world of free resources to thanks people working behind free important projects like Wikipedia. For the same reason, I have also decided to sustain charity associations by inviting those strictly desiring to paying me, to donate their money to poor people. On my flickr profile you can find a long list of people who donated money to third world in change of my pictures.
Moyan continues: What pushed me to improve my skill has always been my curiosity, participation in great communities like Flickr by being inspired by the others, and my passion for colors. I have always tried to not follow any particular style nor to be the shadow of someone else like it happens to many photographers. Instead, believe in the community inspiration, and I have put all my effort day after day in trying to invent a personal style in which i can reflect and especially transmit my emotions to the others, by especially emphasyzing colors and light more than the subject itself and create beautiful sensations to make people better enjoy the world. At the base of my knowledge there is my freedom, with which I learn from the life itself and from my previous mistakes, without any book nor any teacher, but with just the curiosity of going beyond…..
Taking photos sustains me in better fixing sensations of life inside my mind and inside that of other people, hoping to transmit them the emotions i feel during my life. Whenever I manage to do it, whenever i catch that astonished expression in their faces when they look at my works, I have made my day…. Moyan’s web: Moyan Brenn
