Jefferson's Monticello (Pond Reflection)

The home of another hero of mine, Thomas Jefferson. This reflection is in a fish pond.

 

Jefferson was the master planner and architect for his beautiful plantation home and grounds, which was the center of Thomas Jefferson's world. It is 5,000 acres, ornamented by gardens and surrounded by a working farm(approximately). Jefferson designed it and supervised his construction and expansion from 1768 until he died in 1826.

Monticello is located outside Charlottesville, Virginia.
