I love this one, we have rain, rain, wind, wind and seeing this picture, just reminds me...there will be sun some times, thanks for posting!!
Richard Trim: Yes ''sun sometimes'' is right. In a way the frequently changing weather patterns are hurdles that we have to deal with and adjust to in a positive way. But hey! ... all aspects makes good photography. Cheers richard

Stately.

Seems like a long time ago - we have a bit of watery sunshine today so I best try and make the most of it!
Richard Trim: Watery sunshine ....lucky you Mike ... Just right to get the perfect shot !!! Post it tomorrow. ;-) richard
Great view of a classic building in a rural setting.
Richard Trim: Better than the standard 'full frontal' I guess! cheers richard
This is a NT property we haven't been to. It looks great. This is a far better picture than the one on the NT website!
Richard Trim: Thanks Bill. That NT image is a shocker in reality. Shall I send them this one? ;-) richard

Perfect choice of position for a private house, doesn't it look beautifully settled into the countryside.

I think it's a "quintessentially English" scene.
Richard Trim: According to Bill it's possible for the NT photographer to produce less than good shots of the place. thanks Ellie. richard
