Mapperton Gardens in Dorset.
The forecast was dry with light cloud so the challenge was to get some worthwhile shots despite the dull weather. As it turned out I got about 10 minutes dry then rain followed by heavy rain. The first shot was taken from the cover of the Orangery with a 100mm lens at around f3.5.
Second shot some autumn colour. Third, taken with a 24mm lens one shot above the other then merged in photoshop. The final shot was from the same position 24mm lens, toned in photoshop.
