photoblog image Belton House - Part 3 1/7

Belton House - Part 3 1/7

As with most National Trust properties photography is now allowed inside, but using flash isn't.  Quite a lot of the rooms at Belton House are quite dark as they have the window blinds closed and just a few interior lights on, this of course makes taking photos even more difficult.

 

This is a corner of one of the Drawing Rooms, it looks quite a nice little area to sit down in and relax for a while.

 

I will be unable to view and comment on SC for a few days, I hope to catch up with you all in due course, I'm due to be in Minehead for a few days.

As your picture shows Brian, modern cameras are better at low-light.

Ditto, Ray. You clearly had no problem, Brian!

Enjoy your time away.

The portraits on the table give it a homely feel

Have fun in Minehead Brian. I trust you are not heading for Butlins.
Brian Walbey: No chance Chad, somewhere a bit nicer than that, the Gascony Hotel, I can recommend it.
Very fancy. Your shot didn't need a flash, luckily.
Very nice Brian, its amazing what you can do without flash today,have a nice break.

You've done well here, Brian. The natural light gives a more even light. Nicely done.

I hope you enjoy/have enjoyed your break; I like the Minehead area.
I'm relieved flash is not allowed, can you imagine the irritation if it were. Anyway this looks fine Brian.
Brian Walbey: Sadly though we went to Dunster Castle last week and a flash really is needed, it was quite dark inside and most of my pictures are rubbish, even on 800 ISO.
Lovely and sharp Brian, despite the slow shutter speed. What a beautiful room. It's good to be able to catch a glimpse of the inside of NT homes I can't visit
Brian Walbey: Thanks Pamela. Fortunately this one has plenty of light but one I went in last week was quite dull and my photos were pretty dire.
