Swinton Park #2

By gingerdelight    
Another view of Swinton Park Hotel, this time from the main driveway. If you look closely you will see to the right hand side under the tree what looks like a deer. In fact there are two deer statues there but I have to say they do look real from a distance! V2 is a shot of part of the Fallow deer herd on the estate - unfortunately we could not get too close to them as they were very timid, but very beautiful to watch.

These shots were also taken with my new camera - I have to admit I had it set on Auto until I get used to it!

Thank you all for your comments on my last upload, much appreciated.

Beautiful image of the hotel - hope you've got a few inside!
The grounds look lovely - pity you couldn't get closer to the deer.
I'll be interested to see how you fare with your new camera.

As Jim says, the drive takes you into the wonderful looking old hotel, like the deer in V2 also, carol.

Two images, which instantly take one to another place. A place full of beauty, charm, decadence and nature.

Very posh Carol.I have just realised that if I click on an image I can view it large. I eventually found your statue because of it. Thank you.

It looks a great location for photography. For v2 that is when the sigma 150-500mm comes in handy although it is blooming heavy to cart about!
