Earlier this week I had to spend a night at an amazing country house hotel in Suffolk. Having arrived well after sunset the previous evening, I hadn’t appreciated the opportunities it presented for autumnal photography.
My room was set in a walled garden. When I flung open the curtains and opened the patio doors the next morning I was presented with an amazing scene.
The area was full of plants that were still flowering, although they were beginning to turn. It was a sea of yellow and blue flowers. I have tinkered with with colour balance, bringing up the blue and yellow to accentuate the highlights of what I was presented with.
In the background were trees with red and brown leaves, all of them having surrendered to autumn. I have also altered the colour balance and increased the magenta to accentuate the presence of the leaves on the ground.
It was a stunning location. In a different part of the property, I was able to capture the sun as it rose over the horizon over in the east. If you’re going to see a dramatic sunrise, it will be over in Eastern Suffolk, right?
I have linked this image to the amazing #MySundayPhoto linky hosted by the Photalife blog. It’s a brilliant linky that takes place every Sunday. If you are into photography, click on the badge below and see what other bloggers have been up to with their cameras.
