An image from a recent ‘Photography Friday’ jaunt with my regular partner-in-crime, Rachel to Derby Arboretum, Britain’s first public park.

Joseph Strutt commissioned and donated the park for the benefit of citizens of Derby in 1840. The intention was a botanical tree garden for instruction as well as leisure. Sadly it was neglected for many years and even now is a little known and somewhat unappreciated spot in the city…

Digitised using Nikon D5600 & AF-S Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8, pixl-latr and Negative Lab Pro plugin with minimal cropping and tweaking in Lightroom Classic CC.
