It always pays to do some research before venturing out on a landscape shoot.
I don't mean look on a map, notice a red castle thingy and think 'Oh that looks interesting, think I'll go and have a gander!'
No, what you should be checking is the direction the buildings face, will it be better to go in the evening or morning, is there public access, and of course, most important, is it OPEN!
I didn't do this research so apart from a couple of shots taken through the closed barred and locked gates, this was about the best shot of the evening!
Not to worry, I had a nice trip out and the sunset though not great, added a splash of colour to some nice clouds.
I went to London today, not far from Soho, then this title came to me. Coincedence? Or just a bad pun.
Never mind, I hope you enjoy the shot of this old castle (actually as a 14century example, probably not that old in the castle scheme of things). The Cavaliers and Roundheads both had a pop at destrying it in the civil war, it was then landscaped into the grounds of New Wardour House by Capability Brown, it's an ill wind as they say...
All comments welcome, thanks for looking.
