Skywatch #14


Sunbury Skies, originally uploaded by duopastorale.

Here is an offering from Sunbury Walled Garden in Surrey. It's a relatively new garden on the outskirts of London and in the centre stands this majestic lion. It's a favourite place of mine to walk and think and it's a great place to take a good book, always with camera in hand of course!


Today is Skywatch Friday and you can join in by visiting Tom at Wiggers World. Have a great weekend all!

Yes, what a magnificent sky photo.

Love the lion in the foreground.
It took me a moment to recognize the silhouette of the lion. The sky is beautiful and the overall photo is very well done. What a lovely place this must be.

You're so lucky to have a place like this where you can just go walk and think whenever you have free time. I think it's an amazing place! :)

You have changed profile and page. Everyone seems to be doing it at the moment.

Your photo is very unusual.

Looks like there is a garden near to London that I have not heard of.
