TOP TEN in the Beautiful Fence Challenge in the Amazing Challenge Entertainment Group, 16th March, 2014

This lovely rustic fence is just on the edge of the grounds of the ruined Bishop’s Palace in Bishop’s Waltham, Hampshire, England.
The Bishop’s Palace is now a scheduled ancient monument. It was built by Henry de Blois in 1135 and later used by the Bishops of Winchester, together with Farnham Castle and Wolvesey Castle. The palace was visited by Henry V of England, and used by Mary Tudor just prior to her marriage to Philip II at Winchester Cathedral. It was destroyed in 1644 after the English Civil War.

Camera used: Nikon Coolpix E3200

I live in the UK and in 2011 when I joined Red Bubble,started experimenting with different settings and angles. I enjoy finding suitable pictures of flowers, Scotland, reflections, lamps and seats and have now branched out into different subjects.
In 2013 I finally realised my dream of visiting Australia and New Zealand. Whilst there I purchased a Pentax camera so have been able to expand my portfolio of flower macros among other new and exciting subjects.
