I guess most people here have heard of Hampton Court - the Tudor edifice on the outskirts of London that hosts one of the RHS flower shows every year. But in Herefordshire, the original Hampton Court predates it by at least 50 years. Not much is left of the original structure - it's been through many hands since its original aristocratic owners, largely industrialists with more money than taste - but the gardens make for a diverting stroll on a sunny Sunday.
All taken with the X-E1 with XC16-50 lens - most retouched in a combination of LR5.6 plus either Color Efex Pro or Silver Efex Pro. Several imbued with the spirit of Peter Greenaway.
