Autumn pictures

I took these the other day, at Colchester Castle Park.....

My partner spotted this scene (above) and said it would be a good shot.
If it wasn't for him I'd have missed it!
I took it quickly, as it was getting chilly and the light was fading fast.
I had intended to crop it, but I like it as it is now!

This is a little ornamental pond in the gardens with the side of the castle in the background. In the summer this area smells strongly of lavender and roses.

There is a large house nearby, now a museum, called Hollytrees:You can just about see my partner walking around the side of the house here...

Here he is!

Don't know why the water in the fountain was blue...
Beautiful leaves on the walls...
Pity this next one was a bit blurred....
I remember my mum showing me how to make little dolls out of these when I was little :)
Ahh! Gotcha!

After seeing your photos, I am going to start whispering in my husband's ear, "England, England, England. I want to visit England."
Wish me luck!

Lovely shots. That first one has an almost mystical quality. I love the patterns of red leaves against the brick wall.
VERY nice final pic ;)

Thanks for the lovely tour of the place. That first shot is a keeper to frame and hang. I love how the couple is leaning in to each other. The other shots make me want to go there.
