The best thing about Nottingham University Park, apart from the boating lake (obviously!) are the lovely stepping stones at the top end of the park. When the rhododendrons flower in the summer, its quite spectacular, and the ducks are fun and friendly too.
The colors in the photo are beautiful and they accent what is happening. The sunset in the background creates horizontal lines across the image and makes it very visually appealing. Plus the balloons in the sky give great contrast.
