Final view

Hi folks.

Last few, I have completed our Wednesdays trip with glorious sunshine, it was the best trip I think we have had there and we never even got to the castle.

I think it is well worth the £18-50 for a year in this place and £16 for us, Trevor has had his monies worth already and you have all year for free, and the place changes every time we go there.

A larger view of were the swan nest was in the first Leeds Castle blog. It was so exciting to be able to get so close to the nests without bothering the swans.

Looking across the upper lake, another one of Sues shots, I think I will retire, hey I have already, sort of.

There seems to me more white Swans there than usual this year.

Swan in the shade. I liked the different light on the body, white Swans are so difficult to shoot due to over exposure.

This was a bit of a challenge with two different coloured swans together light wise and in the shade but with a bit of post processing I think I got there.

This one was taken so that we can see the arch growing throughout the year.
Sue caught us off guard in this last one, if you look closely you can see two tired photographers sitting on a seat. I think I will confiscate her camera if this is how she is going to carry on.

Back towards the exit.

Hope you enjoyed Leeds Castle. we are so lucky to have it so close to us.

nite nite, luv Mike XX
