Summer is officially over, and the first day of Autumn (today, for the rest of you also in the northern hemisphere) has been mostly cloudy and dull here. Yesterday was much the same. But that’s not particularly bad weather for a walk. So after a short walk near Hever Castle, Kent, we drove up to Chartwell, the well-known Churchill family home now in the hands of the National Trust. This was our first visit, and after the obligatory house tour we spent some time in the gardens. Sadly we did not have much time before closing – this is a great place to spend a lazy afternoon, and I’m sure we’ll be returning.
Overcast skies also mean there is not much in the way of wide landscape photography to be done. But it also means it’s the perfect light for those little detail shots, flowers, and the like. So the few images I did take yesterday are mostly of that kind.
This image was taken handheld as a single exposure. Processing involved only some global curves to increase the contrast.
As always, I encourage you to click on the image for a larger version; comments welcome.
