Thank you all for your interest in my Lavender's Blue upload.... and a GREAT BIG THANK YOU to LexEquine (Peter) for his UA on my Cosmos image, a lovely surprise this morning Smile.

Today I have another couple of views of the gardens at Dartington Hall, home of my Shadowland upload.

V1 is a view of the High Meadow, where I'm told there is a beautiful flowering crabapple, but we were too late for this!
V2 shows an oblique view of the edge of the 'Tiltyard' (the sunken lawn featured in Shadowland), in front of the Hall, and you can see the topiaried yew trees on the right (more clearly seen in Shadowland) - these are known as the Twelve Apostles for reasons unknown Smile.

Thanks for looking.

I'm going out shortly - a photography outing with my daughter who's just taken up this wonderful hobby! So I'll be visiting you all later today Smile

Excellent composition in both, especially the use of the curves in V1 and the richly-varied tones of the treess and shrubs.

V1 is particularly good, a winding path inviting us to explore, but at our leisure.

Two superb & lovely scenic landscape images, Theresa. I really like the 'lead-in & composition' of v1, "which is a real Cracker."

Ciao...Peter Wink

Like these shadows in V2 from the hedges.
Good shots.

Dartington Hall looks to have very attractive gardens and a spot you could spend hours exploring. I particularly like V 1, the grassy path leading one nicely through the scene.

This looks so lush and green and I love that winding path in V1.

We had a 15 minute burst of rain yesterday - I went out and stood in the street and got soaking wet - wonderful Smile

The wandering route through v1 appeals most, Theresa. It reminds me of a golf fairway on a particularly difficult hole. Fantastic range of greens for the eye to absorb.

Hi Theresa, how are you? sorry I have missed so much of your beautiful work. Where is this lovely place? You have captured so beautifully as usual very pleasing to the eye. I am looking forward to my trip home to England in October and hopefully getting to meet some of my friends from the siteSmile Thank you for your support and encouragement.
