Pensthorpe Nature Reserve

I visited Pensthorpe to see the Millennium Garden designed by Piet Oudolf – it was heavenly!

    • Thank you! It was quite tricky because the day started bright and so balancing the plants with the bright sky was challenging, and then the day clouded over and was somewhat dull. My companion tends to get very impatient when I take out the camera so it was even trickier! I used both the Canon Powershot 240SX (semi-automatic) and the Canon 600 DSLR with post-production work in Lightroom on a Mac Notebook

  1. It looks lovely 🙂 And very peaceful. I kind of wish I could get that feel about my own garden – albeit I don’t have such an extensive property 🙂
