Return to Harlow Carr Gardens

Went back to Harlow Carr Gardens. Had a lovely spot of lunch in Betty's Tea Rooms which is rather expensive but rather nice! For those of you that don't know, Betty's is a quaint, old fashioned tea rooms where everything is served 'properly'. The waitresses wear black skirts and little white pinnys and caps. It doesn't matter which Betty's you go to or when you go, you always have to queue, it is that popular, especially with tourists. Anyway, down to business, after lunch Sam and I went into the gardens for a walk. Unfortunately, the minute we stepped into the garden, the sun went in and the rain came out. Here are my humble offerings of the day.

This is a view of the potting shed. Had to crank up the ISO to 1600 as it was so dark and also hand held. The noise isn't too bad at all, that is the joy of using the D300!

This is a view of one of the ponds, using a narrow depth of field, focusing on the tulips: Shutter Speed: 1/80 second
