An Autumn Morning at Lowther Park

About 20 minutes or so down the road from where I live there's a beautiful parkland with lots of walking trails (and lots of sheep!). At the centre of this parkland lies the ruins of Lowther Park. I was fortunate enough this Halloween to spend the morning walking in the (slightly sodden) park and surrounding area.

I didn't do much else that was especially 'Halloweeny' - but I think you'll agree that the house is suitably spooky looking and the parkland is pretty amazing with all the Autumn colours (despite the obligatory English rain). Had to take these photos with my phone unfortunately, as I couldn't take my 'baby' (my Nikon SLR) with me - she wouldn't have stood up to several hours in the rain.

Happy (belated) Halloween! xx

Your Halloween sounds far more authentic than mine (I watched the World Series on my couch!). What a beautiful castle--so dreamlike to those of us who live so far away from anything that magical.

Hey you,

How's your day so far? I stayed up FAR too late last night (no good reason either!!) so I'm really feeling it today!

Your photos really capture the eesence of English countryside. The lus greenness. Beautiful Cumbria does get quite a lot of rain, doesn't it...but then it's so green to make up for it, I guess.
