photoblog image Fishing Lodge, Kedleston

Fishing Lodge, Kedleston

On the edge of the river at Kedleston is this very attractive little Fishing Lodge which was apparently also used at one time as a bathing house as well when residents and guests "took the waters".

Very crisp image, Brian.

Is that sheep returning home after "taking the waters"?
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Ray.
Bit of a trek with your towel and rubber duck though Brian
Brian Walbey: But think of all the games one could have with the rubber duck on the river behind Bill smile

A charming place Brian
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed Chris, thanks for your comment.
I notice the statue of a sheep in the foreground, Brian.
Brian Walbey: The sheep was very wary of us Chad, perhaps it was the jar of Mint Sauce Maureen was carrying smile
Very clear shot of a pretty building. What are, or were, the low "wings" used for? They look as though they go underground, unless the central bit is very tall.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Sheila. The "wings" are sort of boathouse things I think, the water level is quite low down behind the building.

Somehow l knew Chad would like the sheep, impressive structure for a bathing house
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tony, and a good place to go fishing from if that is to ones taste as well.
The main building seems huge compared with the rest! Fine capture Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Richard.

Rob
Brian Walbey: Thanks Rob, we would like to go again one day to look in the house as well as the grounds.
You trained that sheep well,I think it adds a great deal to the composition
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much, there is a story that serious photographers carry an inflatable sheep in their bag, this isn't one of those smile

I was gonna say, is the sheep real? They should consider getting an artificial sheep there, it goes very well with the Fishing Lodge - which, is by far the most attractive Lodge I've seen... the architecture of gorgeous.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Mia, there is a story that serious photographers carry an inflatable sheep in their bag, this isn't one of those
Looks like a pleasant spot Brian. Did the sheep have some mates out of the picture?
Brian Walbey: It is a lovely spot Janet, this sheep was all on its own.

a simple but effective composition

that sheep adds an extra touch of compositional magic
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much for your comment.
The sheep adds interest Brian...Its almost stole the picture. Nice one all the same.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Ron.
I like the inclusion of the sheep Brian, and in just the right place
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Pamela.
