Reflections of Croome

By DicksPics
The lead image was taken today at Croome Park, a National Trust property in Worcestershire.

I was dead chuffed that the image was used as a 'Weather Watchers' picture on the BBC's Midlands Today weather forecast this evening(V1) - I don't often submit images to the media and was really pleased to see this picture on the telly!!
' Defford ' was a WW2 RAF base - the BBC website wouldn't accept 'Croome Park' as a location!

V2 was taken in August 2019 from a 'sort of' similar POV and has appeared on EPZ before - it was taken on a sunny day, unlike today when we experienced weather at its dampest!!

Many thanks for all votes and comments on my 'Undercarriage' upload and, especially, to David(davidgibson), Len(Len1950), Cliff(Nikonuser1) and Steve(Stephen_B) for their treasured User Awards. - very much appreciated, as always.SmileSmile

It is great feeling, when you get one of your pictures shown nationally, even more so on the TV. Such is fame!!
I like both of your colour images of Croome, with a slight leaning towards V2 as it shows the entire house, whereas the lead, has part masked out by a tree.
