Places - Broomhill Sculpture Garden

23 Jun 2022 1:47PM   Views : 414 Unique : 259

If you should happen to be in Devon then Broomhill Sculpture Garden is well worth a visit. There are vast gardens that house fascinating sculptures at every turn and under every shrub. We went there way back in June 2016, when the Pentax K-1 full frame DSLR was brand new. Sue was asking where it was because she was posting an image from the garden on EPZ, and that prompted me to have a second look at the images I shot. No doubt the mix of artists and the sculptures will have changed by now, but the principle remains the same. That is, a great place for photography as well as a great cafe for those who like cake and coffee.

Some pictures:

There are some curious pieces there, but the experience is fascinating and I always love looking at all forms of art.

The Pentax and the Butterfly

I always carry my trusty Pentax MX-1, probably the best compact camera that I have ever used. It is staggeringly useful in terms of functions, not too large or heavy and sturdily made. It also has a great lens, the SMC Pentax 8-25mm f/1.8-2.5, comple...
