Stephen Thompson writes descriptive text to accompany his photograph of the beauty and tranquility of Penshurst Park in July, "The leaves are motionless, the flowers droop, the grasshopper is silent in the grass, and the mower rests beside his scythe under the nearest hedge; while the herds speed to the well-known pool where the dense shade of the great trees interposes a leafy screen that shuts out the fierce beams of the sultry noon."
