A botanical garden of trees may sound dull and perhaps it isn’t the most exciting activity to undertake on your Sunday afternoon. But if you’re a keen photographer who loves the autumn season with its bright colours and magnificent light, an arboretum may just be the right spot on a perfect autumn day.
These photos were taken at the Von Gimborn Arboretum in Doorn, in early October. We were captivated by the light and the yellow and red leaves slowly falling from the trees, which only seemed to intensify the tranquility of the garden.
It’s a good place to wind down and spend a full afternoon with your camera. No regrets.
