Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

This shot, of the Temple of Piety, is probably one of the most photographed scenes at Studley Royal, next to the ruins of Fountains Abbey. For me, it had a special appeal, being framed by the autumn colours on the trees. My husband and I had a wonderful day enjoying the gardens and the ruins. Sadly, they did not allow overnight camping for I fancied staying in the van overnight and capturing the scene in the early morning.

Studley Royal is a water garden associated with the abbey. It is an ornamental garden with huge lawns, lakes, a canal and an assortment of follies and classical statues.

From the National Trust - The Water Garden, with its formal, geometric design and its extraordinary vistas, was inspired by the work of the great French landscape gardeners but is entirely individual in character. Studley was also influenced by the work of Queen Anne’s gardeners, George London and Henry Wise.

Thank you for stopping by and sharing Studley Royal Water Gardens, Bev :-)
