This week some members of our local photographic club travelled to Ickworth House near Bury St Edmunds in Suffolk.
Ickworth House is a National Trust Property, famous for its Rotunda, House, parkland and church. Here are some images I got on the day. The weather wasn’t brilliant – overcast at times – but no rain. We were grateful for that.
This is the famed Rotunda. The NT ( National Trust ) are in the process of raising funds to replace 7,000 pieces of slate.
This is the East Wing of the building from across the Italianate Gardens.
Another section of the gardens with the Rotunda in the background.
The last group are of St Mary’s Church in the grounds of the house – including two shots of the church interior. The lighting inside was superb. I just had to have a go at capturing it! I think I did. I hope you agree.
There was too much to take in on one day – almost certainly worth a return trip.
Just back from a week away in Kent. We stayed south of Canterbury, on a farm in a small village called Stelling Minnis. Came back with too many images – can’t show you them all but here are a favourite four that might just interest you!
Maybe next week I’ll show you some more. On the other hand …..
The cloisters at Canterbury Cathedral. A superb building, but unfortunately covered in scaffold for a much need clean.
The White Cliffs of Dover. We were lucky enough to see a ( two seater ) Spitfire ( maybe from Biggin Hill? ) that did a run past the cliffs then came back and barrel-rolled overhead the docks. Sadly, wrong lens on the camera – I was travelling light that day!
Coloured chairs outside the Turner Contemporary Art Gallery at Margate. Is this ‘Still Life’? Or just a picture of four chairs?
The evening sky the night before we left. Not quite my last shot of the week, but it certainly made me feel good.
This windmill is on the River Ant at How Hill in the Norfolk Broads.
I’m not sure if it is a windmill or a windpump.
The local tourist information describes it as both – but I’m not sure that can be the case.
A group of friends from our photography club went up to London this week where we spent an enjoyable evening taking pictures close to the River Thames. We started near Westminster Bridge and worked our way eastwards towards Embankment Station, where tired – but happy – we called it a day.
All of these were taken on the Olympus EM-1 and processed in LightRoom.
