This photograph portraying one of my favourite Springtime images, the full-bodied reds and passionate pinks of the Cherry Blossom, was captured in the grounds of the magnificent Leeds Castle. The castle which is a popular destination for both day trippers and photographs alike is situated 5 miles (8.0 km) southeast of Maidstone, Kent, England, dates back to 1119, though a Saxon fort stood on the same site from the 9th century. The castle seen today dates mostly from the nineteenth century and is built on islands in a lake formed by the River Len to the east of the village of Leeds. I can't wait for the reemergence of the Springtime time blooms that has lain dormant throughout the wintery ice cold months. Leeds Castle never seems to let me down, no matter what the weather. I always manage to capture a snapshot of its true magnificence.
