Does it look too perfect to be real, like a carefully contrived set for some moviedom Shangri-la? Or a scene you might dream up as an ideal spot for contemplation? That's sort of the idea behind this and the other works in photographer Joseph Hyde's exhibit to open Tuesday at Gilman School's Clock Gallery.

The show is called "Land of Nod," and, according to Hyde, it "features images inspired by an 1895 nursery rhyme by Robert Louis Stevenson about an imaginary world that children can visit only through dreams at bedtime."

But if you must know, this triple waterfall is real; Hyde photographed it at Watkins Glen State Park in Watkins Glen, New York.

The show is at the Clock Gallery at Gilman School, 5407 Roland Ave., 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays. It opens Tuesday and runs through March 10. For information, call (410) 323-3800.
