Chirk Gardens 3/5

On the way home from Porthmadog, North Wales last September we stopped off at the National Trust property at Chirk Castle and for three weeks I am featuring a series of shots I took there on three different themes, this being the final week.

 

One of the main features in the gardens at Chirk is this pond and surrounding shrubs with a nice show of Water Lillies just coming into bloom.

 

A collage allows me to give you a general feeling of the pond in one go rather than several days of individual pictures.

 

You can now view the two sets of latest competition winning images from my camera club here

You do these collages very well. They give an overall good impression of a place.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan.
A lovely presentation Brian. Very well done.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Laurette.
You've really given us a feel for the delightful pond and surrounding area, Brian. Did you notice it there were any fish in the water?
Brian Walbey: I didn't notice to be honest Beverly. Thanks for your comment.

Impressive garden and nice montage, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray.
Nice assemblage, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom.
Great colour and details.
Brian Walbey: Thanks John.
Lovely - Beautiful - Peaceful.
What is the bird life like in the gardens ?
Brian Walbey: It is indeed Elsabe. There didn't seem to be a lot of birds, probably the number of visitors scare them off.

I like much the composition of your collage- our eyes are coming closer and closer to the pond so that we can see lovely details, e.g. the water- lilies, but not any frog resting on their petals. It is a friendly, peaceful gardenscape, just appropriate to recreate there for a short time, I'm sure we will find a comfortable bench to take seat.
Brian Walbey: There is a seat nearby to sit in this lovely quiet area Philine.
