Out and About – Baddesley Clinton

My wife and I decided to take an early stroll at Baddesley Clinton, and also avail ourselves of the delicious breakfast rolls and coffee that they serve there.
After we had a walk around this historic house run by the National Trust and a favourite of ours.
I took the D800 and took some shots in and around the grounds. The sky was clear but it was very cold, especially around the pond where this image was taken. The sun was streaming across the water and through the leaves of this plant.
Early in the year I had taken a photo of these plants, again with contre jour but then the leaves were a bright, healthy, vibrant green; this time, their colour was faded, and the autumn was eating in to their edges, turning them crisp and brown.
