Evening Reflection (August Break 2014)

Today's prompt - "reflection".


We found Stanway House in the Cotswolds after we had our lovely dinner in the pub. This is a Jacobean manor house located near our farmhouse bed and breakfast that we stayed in for the night. It was around 8:30pm, but still light - I love those long summer days. The sun wasn't too low to the horizon yet (that happened after 9:30pm), but its light was already warm and golden. Given that the Cotswold stone is golden as well, this makes for a gorgeous color in the evening.


The pond reflected all these beautiful hues. A photographer's paradise, pretty much. We loved to walk around the estate which was mainly this park-like side of the house.


Behind the house there is a huge fountain which rises to over 300 ft. - you can see it in the last photo, on the left half, behind the tree. It reminded me a little bit of Old Faithful in Yellowstone when it erupts.
