Award Shortlist

My recent posts of shots taken at Belton House and something Jim (old timer) said brought to mind another shot taken a year or so ago which shows The Orangery in the background and the Sundial which was the inspiration of Helen Cresswell's book Moondial which was also made into a film prominently in the foreground. So for Jim, who has an interest in sundials here it is (sorry Jim, it doesn't show the part that matters though).

I like the composition - there is a pleasing balance to it. Pin-sharp too. It's a shame that the trees 'block' the building, but you can hardly take a chainsaw to them. Smile

Good work.

Thanks for taking a look Pete and for your comments, appreciated. The Orangery is better seen in detail in my shot The Orangery which looks between the trees.

Well I have to click on this, Brian! I didn't actually see this yesterday - you must have posted it after I'd looked at your PF. Nicely composed.

Thanks for taking a look, Julie & Jim, and for the comments, all appreciated.

Jim - Yes, a late post. I knew I had a shot of the sundial when I last mentioned it, although I thought it was on film, but came across it on a CD whilst looking for another image.

Thanks for taking a look Suey, and for your kind comment, appreciated as always. Had it been a glorious sunny day the colours would have been better, as it was there was thin high cloud supressing direct sunlight.

Excellent compositon and DOF Brian, the clarity is superb.
About Black Rock Cottage, you could have possibly seen it on a calendar or maybe a photographic mag, Doug my husband (highlander) has a photograph of it in his portfolio also, every time we pass we go and take another shot of it,looking for a different mood!
