Picton Castle Gardens #5

My final picture this week from the gardens at Picton Castle was taken at the far end of the Walled Garden which I featured earlier this week.  This little door was almost hidden in the wall behind lots of foliage and wasn't open to the public. I hope you feel I have given it a bit of a mysterious feel in that we shall never know to where it leads.

Have a great weekend everybody, next week we are off to North Norfolk, the county of big skies, so I will post some pictures and catch up with you and yours upon our return.

Details of Picton are available at http://www.pictoncastle.co.uk/index.php

Definitely a mysterious feel, Brian! You nailed it. Now go and enjoy your time away....
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie, hopefully the weather will improve next week over the rain we have at the moment while we are away.

The secret garden springs to mind Briansmile
Have a lovely time in Norfolk.
Brian Walbey: I thought about the secret garden when I took the picture Tracy.
I like it very much, the B&W is clever for this kind of picture : Bravo !
Brian Walbey: Thanks Zeb, the B&W gave it a bit of an air of mystery I felt.
Excellent B&W Brian. This is a really pleasing picture
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill, the colour version is o.k.but doesn't have quite the same atmosphere.

Definitely looks like the door to the secret garden. Looks good in b/w.
Ingrid
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ingrid, I bet there was some grotty old shed or something the other side of the gate, let's just let our imagination work instead.
Hidden doors are always good and I think the b&w brings out the textures of the wood, brickwork and foliage very well.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ian, it does look quite good in colour but I felt the conversion was the right thing to do.

Lovely tones in this, Brian.. B&W works very well for this timeless feel to it.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan, that seems to be the general feeling, including mine.
