Whitehaven in the autumn

Whitehaven is a Georgian town on the Cumbrian coast. Long ago it was the most important port for ships bound for America (ahead of Liverpool). This year the parks department has excelled itself, keeping St Nicholas Gardens looking colourful as well as filling every public space with begonias in containers.

One day I went looking for autumn colour in Trinity Gardens. Occasionally I stop to take photos in passing. The curled-up swans stopped me in my tracks.
