End of season for the National Garden Scheme gardens really but one or two brave places are still opening to the public. Conscious of the need to ‘shoot’ some autumn images for the photographic project I ventured out to Peterborough to Willow Holt.
It sits in the fenland outside of the town, remote and a little wild, set apart from the huge wind power turbines that grace the horizon and turn slowly.
I chose to go mid/late afternoon to get better light of course assuming the light would be evenly cast. A good lesson in not making assumptions because of course the light in this garden was quite dappled and shady already. Low light shots instead.
Collapsed autumn-ness was upon it, though good structure and clear design prevented a total cave in.
The Dell in it’s dappled afternoon sun made it worth the 1 hr trip.
