photoblog image Sandringham Lake (Again)

Sandringham Lake (Again)

My posting of 19th.September was of one of the lakes at Sandringham with the house in the background.

This is the same lake taken looking in the opposite direction. The little stone built pagoda on the other bank looked a lovely place to sit and read or contemplate ones lot.

Another photographer spent about 10 minutes laying on the ground in front of the pagoda taking shot after shot while I was there. It wasn't any of you by chance was it?

What a beautiful view, Brian. It looks so peaceful and serene.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Kay, it was really peaceful despite the fact there was a lot of people about, they are very large gardens.
If I'd been lying on the ground you would probably have seen Ange helping me back up again tongue Lovely picture postcard shot Brian
Brian Walbey: Lol Bill, Maureen would have had to do likewide I think. Thanks for your comment.
Idyllic Brian ... maybe the frame is a touch too dominant though.
richard
Brian Walbey: Your probably right about the frame Richard, I'm in a bit of a frame mood at the moment, I will have to restrain myself in future. very nice spot to be as you so rightly said.

Lol at Bill. It sounds a familiar sounding situation in our family! This is a very attractive view Brian, but I can only echo Richard's comments - why don't you try the large format template, without borders? I'm sure it would only enhance your work.
Ingrid
Brian Walbey: Thanks for your comment Ingrid, I will try and get out of this big frame habit I am in at the moment, excuse any coming up in the next few days I have already posted.

Nice shot and composition - a little bit of a green tinge to my eyes. What's your white balance set to?
Brian Walbey: Thanks Harv, to be honest I usually use auto WB. looking again you are probably right about a greenish tinge, I will work on it if i ever use the picture elsewhere.
Contemplating one's lot if you're the queen is quite different than if I was doing it - sadly.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mary, you're probably right about the Queen although I think that generall she only goes here at Christmas when it would be far to cold to sit out here I would think.

Oooh, now that's cosy looking isn't it.

Somehow reminds me of Virginia Water
Brian Walbey: It really is a pleasant little spot on a fine summer day Ellie, I think I was there on the only one we've hadsmile

Brian Walbey: Thanks Tim, yes it is a nice spot, thankfully we can enjoy it along with the Queen, for a small admission charge of course!
