LIFESTYLE | An Autumnal Trip to Westonbirt Arboretum
I recently took an Autumnal trip to Westonbirt Arboretum with my friend and our boyfriends, I decided to take my camera this time and take a few snaps…
Can you believe I’ve only been to WA twice AND it’s only a 30 minute drive from my house..
I’m gonna be honest and let you all know that I had no idea this place even existed – yes I do live under a rock!
Basically, WA is managed by the Forestry Commission and supported by the Friends of Westonbirt Arboretum. There are 15,000 labelled trees that come from Britain, China, North America, Japan, Chile and other temperate climates. (I’ve added links if anyone would like further information, as I’m not very intelligent nor am I any good with history/culture etc. – I just appreciate things that are pretty #guilty!)
I really loved the bright and colourful Autumnal trees and there were soo many of them!
WA is massive and you could spend hours wandering around taking in all of the prettiness and snapping away. I tried not to stop too much and take too many photos – I didn’t want to completely bore my company.. – which was a good idea anyway, otherwise I would have ended up with a lot of naff photos which would have been a waste.
At least this way I actually stopped and thought about what I was taking a photo of.
This little guy looked funny, so obviously I had to take a photo of him!
Again, more photo’s of colourful and Autumnal trees.. I just couldn’t help myself.
If I remember rightly, I *think* the red ones were from Japan. Don’t quote me on that though, as I could be completely wrong!
I really wanted to take some photos of my friend (pictured above) because she’s extremely photogenic and just looks great in photos – she’s also super fashionable which I love, so I’m just dying to do a shoot with her! – but it was a bit too busy to parade around in front of a camera, so I only managed to snap this one of her on the little fox – which was obviously meant for kids but who cares!
I love the lighting in that image, it was really soft and a little dark and I just love it.
We literally just wandered around, chatted and then had a little pit stop for a hot choc. We had a lovely morning and I definitely recommend visiting Westonbirt Arboretum if you haven’t done so before.
