Wait a Monet…that’s not a painting! These are the incredible snaps of a breath-taking lake – that looks just like one of the artist’s masterpieces. The beautiful lake was covered in layers of forest-green moss and pretty pink flowers, which looked like they were created by the brush strokes of a skilled painter. The stunning snaps were taken by Spain-based Vietnamese photographer Viet Ha Tran, at the lake inside the Royal Palace of Aranjuez – a palace just outside the capital city, built in the 16th century as a residence for the King of Spain. Viet Ha said: “The Royal Palace is blessed with a wonderful green garden that stretches over a lake, and you can get lost in thought as you look out at the thousands of trees”.
