Coronation Commemoration- Wyastone Leys, Monmouth by 

Way back in 1953 to commemorate the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, the Forestry Commision planted trees in the shape of a crown with ER in its centre at Wyastone Leys, Monmouth. Although nature has prevailed over the years, this crown is still clearly visible during the autumn months.
Shot taken 23 November 2009 using a Canon EOS D30 and Canon 38-76mm lens

Hi, my name’s Chris. I live in the beautiful county of Monmouthshire.
When I was 10 I was given a Brownie 110 for a school trip – not a single shot came out! But ….. the photography bug was born.
My interests are broad in both subject & style leading to a diverse portfolio – check out My Directory at to see just how varied my style & products are.
I hope you enjoy your visit, my sites have been created with you in mind.

  • Hi Tina – I had to search for a spot where it wasn’t obscured by trees. It’s good to share it with a fellow local :O)
