I love Castle Howard and its grounds in North Yorkshire. When we visited on this particular day it had been pouring down all morning, so we spent some time wandering through the house. Then, in the afternoon some totally unexpected lovely stormy light broke through the clouds and I loved how the stonework 'lit up' on the Temple of The Four Winds........which has always fascinated me.

Many thanks for the C&Cs on my previous uploads - much appreciated folks.

It's amazing how a dark, menacing sky can cast such intense light. This says Yorkshire perfectly for me, I like the way you have combined architectural detail with a broad, rolling vista.

Very thoughtfully composed, Ali - I do like the inclusion of the bridge to give added interest to this beautiful scene.

Got this spot on Ali, I like to see these sort of skies, they're so much more atmospheric, especially when combined with the rich light that you have found. Well done.
