Taken back in March of this year, the photograph above shows the fishing pond at Abney Hall Park. It was a lovely day when we went, Claire and I had a great picnic. It is definitely somewhere I hope to go back to this summer. Apart from Continue reading “Fishing Pond at Abney Hall Park”
Built in 1847, Abney Hall is in a relatively unknown area

The weather was wonderful as you can see from the photograph below. I am very happy with the hundred or so images that I captured today; including many interesting close ups of flowers.
