Hatfield House Park

A pleasant afternoons walk in the grounds of Hatfield House. The smaller birds were quite active – Long-tailed Tits, Blue Tits, Great Tits, lots Robins. Nice spots were Nuthatch and Treecreeper.

I decided to take the camera and tooke the opportunity to do something i’ve wanted to for a while – take some photos of the amazing old trees that are in the park there. The light wasn’t brilliant but managed to get a few shots.


How old must this tree be? Hundreds of years to hazard a guess?

Ancient Wisteria – again, just how old must this be?

    Thanks Soaplady. I just love black and white photography, trees and objects (both natural and man-made) with lots of texture just seem to be made for B+W. The trees in the park are just amazing, some literally hundreds of years old.

    those trees are lovely … the third pic (b/w) is *stunning* … Things really do seem to have more impact in black and white …
    I love trees too, which is cruel as we don;t have many where I live, but whenever I go to the mainland I come back with a memory card full of trees, waterfalls, and interesting macro-shots …
