Weekly Photo Challenge: Depth


I have struggled with this week’s photo challenge theme: depth.   So I have decided to choose some images that show a depth of field, the depth of the garden so to speak.

This photos were taken at Wollerton Old Hall in Shropshire in 2012.  A garden I must visit again as I have found looking back through the photographs I took there inspiring at a time when I feel a little confused about the garden.

  1. I am such a big fan of the effective use of shape and rich color so yes I love the garden. I’m going to see if there is some way I can get this garden on a visit list.

      Hi Charlie
      It is a wonderful garden, well worth a visit

  2. What a great inspiration for an embroidered garden!

  3. A garden on my ‘must visit’ list.Whilst in Shropshire I would also like to visit Katherine Swift’s garden at Morville….have you been there Helen? I’ve got her book ‘The Morville Hours’ about the restoring of the garden.

      Hi Sue

      I know the book but I haven’t visited the garden, I’m not sure how much it is open though

    Great pictures. I can see how you get inspiration from the garden, it’s such an interesting layout.
    I tend to think of flowers first, so a few more evergreens and more structural green would be a smart choice!

    Lovely photos. This is a garden on my list of places to visit.

    Beautiful photos Helen – you captured the depth perfectly. Old Wollerton is a garden I would love to visit and, like Sue, I would also love to visit Katharine Swift’s garden if I ever make it to Shropshire.

  7. There is another ‘trick’ you could use with a garden space like the second picture, to make the garden seem bigger.
    Either trim the box balls progressively slightly smaller as you go away from the viewpoint. Or make the pool a foot or so narrower at the far end. Both will fool the eye.

    Lovely ‘depth’ pictures Helen – I particularly liked the pond and the box balls. Wish I could visit too!
