photoblog image Sandringham #1

Sandringham #1

I'm going to do a theme this week for a change and am asking you to join me at Sandringham, the royal families Norfolk retreat which we visited in the Autumn.

I posted a picture of the lake on 30th.September which you may recall, and also another picture of the lake and house on 19th.September.

This picture is taken looking in the opposite direction towards the extensive lawns at the back of the house, which is just behind the trees on the right.

Can you imagine living there, Brian? Or mowing the lawn might be a nice job to have? smile
Brian Walbey: Hello Ginnie, thanks for your comment. If you saw the size of the lawns at this place you would only want to walk on them as a way to enjoying the garden.
This is a glorious shot Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris, it is a nice place to go, bit of a trek from your part of the world though.
A sight of summer in this snowy day !
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed Zebigleb, we woke up to snow this morning as well.

I like the way you have framed this with the flowers in the foreground. I've never been to Sandringham so shall follow along on your tour!
Ingrid
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ingrid, hope you enjoy the other postings from here this week. Perhaps you may get up this way some time and pay your own visit there.
A wonderful perspective here Brian. How enjoyable it is to see these beautiful colours!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, we need something to brighten us up after the overnight snow, fortunately not too much where we are though.

Nicely done Briansmile
I have been there too and it's a lovely place to visitsmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Tracy, worth another visit if you pass that way again.
More summery views, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chad, and the sooner Summer gets here the better.
I recognise this view, Brian, and what a scene to look forward to again - especially on a cold East Anglian morning such as today's. Thanks also for your comment on my Happisburgh picture.

Mark
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mark, it was cold here in the East Midlands this morning also. Perhaps this weeks postings will inspire you to make another visit to Sandringham.
beautiful composition Briansmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tim, it's quite easy to take quite a few shots around this lake.
Well composed Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Pamela, there are two other views of this lake on 19th.& 30th.September if you are interested.

I think it is a treat to walk that park, the way you captured it sure is an invitation to do so.
Wonderful picture.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Astrid, I know you would love to walk here, as you said to Chris today a lot of your country is so flat, this place is woods and lawns and gardens, a bit like when you went to Chatsworth with Tracy.

perfect placement of the flowers in the foreground - they could use this as a publicity shot!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mike, perhaps I should have a quick word with the Queen about this years leaflet :-D

Yes, I remember your posting from back in September; I will look forward to your images. I like this one with just the glimpse of the house through the vegetation.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan, hope you enjoyed your trip up North.
