photoblog image A Walk in Bradgate Park  5/5

A Walk in Bradgate Park 5/5

The final individual image in this series from Bradgate Park, Leicestershire is of a small boathouse on the shore of Cropston Reservoir which runs alongside the park.

As you can see a lot of the dead foliage is still evident from last Autumn and is being lit very nicely by the low sun as evening approaches.

Tomorrow I am going to post a collage made up of all five pictures in this series that I hope you will enjoy.

Very picturesque Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris.

Love the light, the textures etc.

Very pretty!

If it was mine, Brian, I might be tempted to tell SC to leave off the frame, as the view is beautifully self-framed.
Brian Walbey: I've done as you suggested with the frame ray and you are right. Thanks for the tip, I didn't know about that setting.

the movement of the brush and grasses combined with the rich hues and that lovely stone work---this place is heaven and you've captured it!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Kathryn, the light fell on this just right to lift those colours left over from last Autumn.
I suppose you will be posting photos of winter next, Brian.
Brian Walbey: No Chad I will leave the Winter pictures to you at the moment :-D

Lovely framing to this, Brian. Unusual to see what looks like a stone building; not something I normally associate with Leicestershire.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan, the whole of the Charnwood Forest area, where this is, is all on ancient granite, indeed there are big outcrops in the park so lots of older buildings are made from it. There is also a lot of slate in the area which has been used for roofing over the years.
Cracking shot Brian,the trees frame the shot perfectly, nice one !!!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Jim, it all fell into place just right on this occasion.
