A recent image of a dahlia from Lytes Cary Manor.

Wonderful deep borders full of flowers even at this time of year. The depth of the border and light made the whites 'Zing'. Just a tweak with levels and a minor crop, otherwise the image is as I saw it.

Thank you all for taking the time to view and comment on recent images, your time and trouble is very much appreciated.

Wild and wet here again in Cornwall this morning.

Best wishes
Carole
