Sheffield Park

By ChasD
Sheffield Park Garden is one of my favourite gardens. built around four lakes with a wide variety of trees that look particularly good in the Autumn. The Park also contains a cricket pitch laid out by the Earl of Sheffield in 1876 and first used on the 12th May 1884 for the first match between England and Australia. Australia won by an innings and 6 runs.

Lovely photo hope that you have another with the house larger in the frame with the water and surrounding trees, must have been getting dusky, hence the high ISO, Wink but this could be as close as you could get?? Chen.

I wish I knew where this was, not sure that it is in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, you'd think I would have known about if it was, but hey there are some great secrete kept here.

This is a very uplifting image, beautiful reds contrasting against the greens, magic relfections and a bony blue sky, and this was taken in January, wow!

Thank you for all your comments, they really are appreciated. Tish the name is misleading, Sheffield Park is in East Sussex. My exif information for this camera is also unreliable, unfortunately I dropped the camera and although it works well in every other respect the date function went haywire. Rather than have it repaired I decided the time had come to treat myself to an upgrade and bought a Pentax K7, sadly after that, I was diagnosed with cancer and have spent much of the past four years having treatment and photography has taken a back seat, although you will see from my gallery that I have taken some recent photos. Information from the new camera and my Canon camera is accurate. The photo was taken in October and not January. sorry to have mislead you. Charles.

A stunning and most beautiful picture of this wonderful place, Charles.
We visited earlier this year - I bet the colours are magical now that autumn is upon us.
