The last days of the Autumn colours were upon us. After a final check with the Autumn Watch message, left each day by Stourhead's cheif garden, we headed off early Sunday morning.

We were determined to capture the faboulus Autumn colours before they started to fade and arrived early to avoid the crowds.

Stopping at the various vantage points around the lake we set our tripods and took a variety of images before it got too busy with other visitors.

Thanks to Colin T and Colin F for joining me on this shoot. Here is a collection of our images, which we hope you enjoy.

If you were unable to make this photo shoot we will visit again next autumn.
