The Walled Garden

Part of the extensive grounds of Goodnestone Park near Canterbury, looking towards the Church of the Holy Cross in the distance. On a windless day the Church's reflection shows up beautifully in the ornamental pond. The wind was causing too much water movement on this day.

Another for the Flash of Red 2018 challenge - black and white pictures for a month, with an optional splash of red on 14 February. The emphasis here is on textures.

Processing with Silver Efex.
I love silver Efex but it no longer works on my I Mac for some reason. Great tones in this :)

The church looks a bit like a fairytale castle in this photo. A wonderful view. I love the clouds and the stone pillars. Fav.

That is an impressive church in the background!

Beautiful image. I like the framing of the brick pillars. They must be beautiful in the summer, covered with green vines.

This is a gorgeous b&w. The lighting is spot on and I love how you framed the image with the brick entryway.
