Sandringham #2

This is a view of the back Sandringham house taken from down near the lake I featured yesterday.

I was fortunate that the light picked out the rich colours of the brick and stonework of the building, and as you can see, on the right hand side the nature of the architecture and building materials changes. I presume it wasn't all built at the same time.

Very impressive building, that;s for sure. I can see at least three different architectural styles here. The richness of the bricks stand out wel lagainst the sky.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan, the building faces in a westerly direction and with the light being a bit lower in September it catches the dark brickwork very well.

It's not what you would call a beautiful building - more handsome. the colours are certainly lovely and rich and contrast really well with the green.

Brian Walbey: Thanks Ingrid, I think you've summed it up, it is a building of various parts but the brickworks is a lovely rich colour.
This is an excellent view, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chad, I wonder if the Queen is enjoying this view today, I believe she spends most of January there.

I love this one Brian, very regal building.smile
You are right the light is spot on.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tracy, I bet this looks even better by late Autumn with the low evening sun on it highlighting the deep colours.
I stayed in a big hotel in Harrogate caslled the Majestic which looked a bit like this (it was the place Agatha Christie stayed when she ran off). I bet the heating bills are horrendous!
Brian Walbey: I don't suppose the Queen has to pay the heating Ian, no doubt we do. Thanks for your comment.
This is quite an impressive building Brian. I really like the brickworks with this beautiful lighting!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, it is a lovely building and the brickworks is a lovely colour.
The lighting shows the different brick colours off well. It looks a bit of a mish mash of a building, but worth a bob or twosmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill, it also looks, when you are there, that it was built at different times as well.
This is basically no more than a summer retreat for the royals: which sums them up very adequately. Nice picture though Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris, I think the Queen spends most of January there after the rest of the pack have gone there seperate ways on Boxing Day. Nice job if you can get it!

Very well-defined contrast between green, red and blue. It is fascinating building, so many details and styles. There is a few similar ones near my work, Marylebone in London. I always liked to look at them.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Monika, some of the older buildings near Marylebone were built around the same time as Sandringham I suspect.
