Clumber Park Gardens And Chapel

Just North-East of Nottingham is Clumber Park, now owned by the National Trust.   We went there a few years back when we were staying in the area and I have featured a few pictures from there in the past including the chapel you can see behind the trees.

If you are ever in the area it is well worth calling in and enjoying the drive through the grounds and numerous walks round and about.  We were here on Monday last week and the autumn colours were beautiful,  as you will see later this year.

More details are at http://www.nationaltrust.org.uk/main/w-clumber_park-2 and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clumber_Park

You might remember a few weeks ago I gave you a Flickr link to Brian Negus and his blog.  Brian is a member of my Camera Club, besides being a really nice chap,  and is also severely partially sited yet produces amazing photographs all the same.  He has recently been interviewed for local television and if you can spare just over three minutes you may care to watch him at http://news.bbc.co.uk:80/local/leicester/hi/people_and_places/newsid_8302000/8302330.stm

His blog address, once again, is http://www.flickr.com:80/photos/briannegus

This is a hum-dinger, Brian.
Brian Walbey: As I said we were back at this place last Monday as well, it is really a nice spot, I will do a series from there later in the year.

I can just imagine the feeling of this place in real life, Brian. And I was inspired to watch the link on Brian Negus. Oh my!
Brian Walbey: I just know you would enjoy Clumber park Ginnie, we did once again last Monday. Re Brian he also got a picture on out local weather forecast last night which he didn't know about till I emailed him. Sheila enjoyed the link to his video because, as we know, her husband has sight problems and I think it gave them a bit of inspiration.

Dramatic processing Brian
Brian Walbey: A touch of Topaz on this one Tony. Thanks for your comment.
Looks like a lot of aircraft activity earlier Brian.
Brian Walbey: The vapour trails look quite spectacular in this shot Chad and fill in the sky a bit.

This looks like a scene from a dream Brian - it has a very surreal feel to it probably because of the highly saturated colours!
Ingrid
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ingrid. I have used a touch of Topaz on this which has deepened up the colours quite a bit.
Very nice photo of the gardens and the chapel.
Thanks for the new link to Brian Negus. We watched and I was impressed. Ithink my husband was too, it certainly made him think, because, as you know, he has lost most of his sight this year, and is now officially registered blind (even though he can see some things, like Brian).
Brian Walbey: Thanks Sheila. I'm glad Brians video was some inspiration to you both, my Mum was registered blind during her last few years and struggled at times to go on.

super work
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much vintage.
This looks a beautiful park, The National Trust do a good job.
Brian Walbey: Clumber is a lovely park Linda, it covers a massive area and a lot of it is the fringes of Sherwood Forest, no sign of Robin Hood while we were there though smile
What a wonderful place Brian. The light is superb!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, I suspect Clumber Park would be very much a Richard Standley sort of place, loads of footpaths through the forest for Saturday walks.
Just a beautiful place Brian..and well kept. Again..I like your processing.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ron, it is a lovely place and we enjoyed going there agian last Monday.
You are a master of post-processing. The skies are always so dramatic.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mary. I will confess this had a touch of Topaz which helped lift the colours a bit.
Lovely composition and colour Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Ingrid.

This looks to be a delightful place. Thanks for the link to the blog again. I've looked before and his photos are mazing. I'll look again tonight as such delights are blocked by our firewall.
Brian Walbey: Clumber Park is great Alan, I reckon you would enjoy the walks through the extensive forest areas. I hope you enjoy the link tonight, Brian also got a shot on our local T.V.weather forecast last night as well.
thats glorious Brian, superb comp and processingsmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Tim.
The National Trust is a great institution. Well seen Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Albert.
Fine shot Brian. I remember you friend and was impressed by his pictures. I'll try and have a look at the interview
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill, I hope you enjoyed Brians video if you had time to watch it.

I've heard of this place, but never been there.

Superb detail in this picture Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ellie, this is quite a long way from down where you live in the south but well worth a visit.
Nice bit of English landscape Brian, and your mate's pictures are pretty good as well.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Les.

Excellent!!
Cheers
Rob
