The View of Sheffield Park

The View of Sheffield Park

So it's meant to be a little bit cooler today which is very welcome after about 40 days of back to back heat. 

Everything is in need of water, there are fields around here that were lush green a few weeks back and now look brown. 

This is Sheffield Park from a few weeks back.

Waterlilies

Sheffield Park is quite possibly my happy place, it's so beautiful no matter what time of the year you visit. At the moment it's bursting with colour especially the waterlilies. 

The waterlilies are looking amazing across all the ponds at @sheffield_park_and_garden, make sure you pop along to their Waterlily Festival starts on Saturday 9 June.

Honestly it won't disappoint.

The Calm and Peaceful

When you've been in a city for a break and come back to the countryside you realise just what you've got. The fresh air, the open green spaces and the lack of huge crowds. 

We're so lucky to have this on our doorstep and I think sometimes we forget that.

All the Colour

National Trust properties and gardens are one of my favourite places to visit, they're always looking so perfect. Just down the road from us is the wonderful Sheffield Park and the other afternoon it was looking stunning. 

Across one of the lakes, the waterlilies were really showing off. Over the next month, they've got their annual waterlily festive and it looks like it will be amazing.

I just can't get enough of autumn colours. The drama in the clouds, the colours in the trees...it all makes for the perfect time to get outside taking photos.

Weird Sky

What was up with the sky yesterday? 

The sky pretty much in all of the South of England has a yellow/red glow about it. To describe it best I would say that it felt like an eclipse. 

This photo probably doesn't do it justice.

The Best Camera

People are of the opinion that you need to have the best camera to capture beautiful photos. I tend to disagree, the best camera is the one you have with you. 

These days that is a phone and the cameras on them are getting better all the time, the photo below is one taken with an iPhone.
