Cusworth Park Upper Lake
The largest or Upper Lake of the three lakes at in Cusworth Park. Originally designed as fish ponds to serve the Hall I am not sure how much of the original layout remains as the whole estate has been overhauled. It was originally intended to restore the estate back to its original design but it seems that it was not always possible and instead it was amended to make it suitable for community use. The hall is now a museum and popular wedding venue whilst the use of the estate grounds seems to demand you have at least one dog accompanying you!

Not quite tho impact of your first shot but still enjoyable to wander round, just with the eyes, Zac fast asleep in his basket and Hugo snoring in front of the Aga
The Swan, a nice touch wandering into the shot, with a myriad of Water Fowl on the lake behind it to further enhance this scenic lake vista. And of course the blue sky complete with white and fluffys, like it loads.

Thanks George. The shots of the two lakes were taken as record shots for my 'Places to re-visit' folder but they seemed to fit with the Hall stuff so I thought I'd post them. I think it will be a nice place to go should we ever dry out and get some sunshine!

Yes looks a good place to visit when we get some good weather

Like George, this does not have quite the same impact as the earlier upload. I'm frustrated that I want to see more of the pond life on the left and the trees beyond the pond and less of the featureless pond to the right.

A nice light and 'airy' shot to lift us from the wintery gloom.

I have to agree with the fellas, another good shot but preferred the other one.

A very popular place indeed for the locals, and a nice record shot. May be interesting to take photos from the same spot through the seasons, to see the change.
