Photographer's Note

'Ha-ha' a strange title? But here on this autumnal scene is a ha-ha.
From Wikipedia:- "A ha-ha (or saut de loup) is a recessed landscape design element that creates a vertical barrier while preserving an uninterrupted view of the landscape beyond."

'It involved digging a deep ditch, the inner side of which would be built up to the level of the surrounding turf with either a dry-stone or brick wall.'
(National Trust)

This is Saltram once again, a National Trust property very close to where I live.
Lots of cattle had been put into the field to graze, and with the ha-ha there, there should be no real problem of the cattle getting into the grounds and gardens of the big house!
Although it has been known in the past despite the ha-ha!
One more view in the W/S.

Thanks for looking.
