Hever Castle 3

This is for Aussie, she thought yesterdays was possible typically English, and I thought this might be too.  I couldn't decide on B&W or colour.

I'm away for a few days, probably swapping the camera for a glass or two;)

What a clever presentation of such a beautiful scene.
Actually, this diptych is better than an either / or IMHO (in my humble opinion)

Rorschachian in gestalt. You should leave what is typical english to the non-english to decide. I definitely don't think about england in b&w except foggy days in London.
