The place was teeming with people (it was Saturday) and I was fascinated by this woman who seemed to have found an inner peace in this beautiful garden despite all the bustle. This is also one of the most beautiful views of the castle I saw on the day.The woman sitting on the bench with closed eyes inspired me to create an atmosphere of quiet and tranquility.
An awesome rose garden with ornamental arches and pillars. It really felt like heaven standing in the midst of vibrant colours and gorgeous scent. I think the roses must have just been at their best or thereabouts so I was lucky to be there right at the time.
This is the first scene I saw as we walked down the path to the castle. I was totally smitten by the tall grass deliberately left to grow and become golden by the relentless summer sun. And the apple trees looked beautiful with their contrasting rich green colour.
