Day #2545

Day #2545Title: Old Oak, Hylands
Location: Hylands Park, Chelmsford
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 50mm EF f/1.4 USM
Notes: This gnarly old oak is pretty huge, sitting in the grounds of Hylands Park. The house has been there since 1730 – perhaps there’s a good chance the tree has been there even longer. What stories it could tell!

Day #2525Title: Leaf On A Bridge
Location: RHS Hyde Hall, Rettenden
Camera: Canon EOS 5D MkIII / 100mm EF f/2.8 L IS USM
Notes: A little detail which caught my eye as I was enjoying a sunny walk around the gardens at Hyde Hall today. The bright orange yew leaves were casting a fab little shadow on the old wooden footbridge.

Day #2521Title: A Taste Of Japan
Location: Kyoto Garden, Holland Park, London
Camera: Canon EOS 100D / 18-135mm EF-S f3.5-5.6 IS STM
Notes: The Kyoto Garden in Holland Park is always worth a visit. I had a bit of time this afternoon before a meeting and made the most of a quick walk around the gardens before the rain started. The peacocks were much in evidence, as usual.

Day #2511

Day #2511Title: Acer, Granite, Bamboo & Water
Location: Rhino Rock, East Peckham, Kent
Camera: Canon EOS 100D / 18-135mm EF-S f3.5-5.6 IS STM
Notes: Julian and I took a ride over to Rhino Rock’s Japanese Garden Centre today, so that I could get some ideas for overhauling my back garden. It was raining, but Japanese gardens look fantastic in the rain anyway – I loved the mixture of the water on the smooth granite and the organic shape of the fallen Acer leaf.
