This was a commission for Gardens Illustrated magazine. Early spring saw a magnificent display of tulips and narcissus beneath majestic old trees. Woolbeding is a modern garden of two halves, with the colour-themed garden rooms surrounding the house, plus a landscape garden. I loved the tulips and narcissi and the contrast with the majestic trees above, best appreciated now without their leaves. Sunset was a beautiful time to shoot this scene. I moved about to get this position which showed for me a great balance between the spring flowers, ancient tree above and fence line leading your eye into the distant fields.
