Autumn in Derbyshire // Sudbury Hall Gardens //

I've always been one to take photos, from the earliest days of wind-on cameras, to film cameras, to hand-held digital and now my DSLR, there is something lovely and addictive about capturing a moment in a picture... Sometimes moments happen so quickly that I think I would have missed them if my camera hadn't caught it still for that split second.

This past week, we were up in beautiful Derbyshire. We took my flower-girl Kaya, who was over from Austria, and incidentally is now far too grown up to be a flower-girl (Sob - where do the years go?!), and headed north to the Midlands. A week break away from the hustle and bustle of Suburban London life.

Autumn has always called us north... perhaps its the reminiscing of starting university that fateful September when my first impression of the Midlands was formed amidst fiery autumnal leaves. As my Aunt commented last week, "Derbyshire is at its best in the autumn"... and I think she's right...

And so, of course, my camera came along with us, wherever we went, and there was once particular afternoon, while exploring the gardens at beautiful Sudbury House, that it seemed to capture moments that otherwise would have escaped us.

I think these are some of my favourite photos ever.

And thanks to Kaya, who is developing her own love of photography, I actually got to be in some of them for once!

So here you have it... Autumn in Derbyshire... fun in the leaves...
