photoblog image Belton House - Part 4: The Church 1/7

Belton House - Part 4: The Church 1/7

I showed a view similar to this in an earlier posting but here the church of St.Peter and St.Paul on the Belton House estate can be seen more closely.  The path to the church is to the right of the hedge on the way out of the Italian Garden.

 

Many thanks to all of you who left comments while I was away on holiday in Minehead last week, I can't possibly answer all of them, time doesn't allow, so please accept this acknowledgement of thanks.  We had a great time and pictures will follow in due course, before then I have several other sets to come up including our Yorkshire trip in May.

 

PS. I don't like the image thumbnail layout on the  new Manage system very much personally.

Nope!

Still cannot compete with the garden, Brian.
Brian Walbey: When one can see the whole vista of the garden with the Orangery and the church in the background Ray the whole is a sight to be enjoyed.

A pretty scene Brian. I agree with you regarding the thumbnails: it was far better before
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris, on both counts.
I love the flowers in this shot, they brighten it
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chantal. To my right is also a nice avenue of trees.
Lovely scene Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Martin.

Lovely bright English summer day
Brian Walbey: Thanks Aussie. A bit earlier than summer, this was Easter Saturday.
Beautiful colours in all the stone and brick as well as the flowers smile
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed, thanks Linda.

This is a real joy, Brian. I like the composition very much and the spring colours really add to the scene.
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Alan.

Oh.. I'm not overly keen on the new Shutterchance image management, either.
Brian Walbey: I had quite a shock when I logged on after my return from Minehead. I wondered where the Archive menu item had gone. Sometimes it is better to leave things alone if they work well IMHO.

Lovely looking garden. I remember visiting Belton House years ago - it was very interesting.
Regarding the new layout, I have to disagree with everyone else. The new system might not look as good as the old, but is far more useful. Under the old system, it could take a long time to locate a particular picture - with this new system you can see at a glance and it is far more user friendly. Surely the purpose of an archive is for other people to see your work - they would have got bored after flicking through the first 2 or 3 pages! Still a few bugs though - can't see what the public sees without logging out and the slideshow doesn't work - it shows someone else's work!
Brian Walbey: Yes we enjoyed our visit there Ingrid, for Easter Saturday the weather was great. I have just been reading the forum comments about the update so far. I agree in part with your view about the thumbnails but I would prefer at least a very slight background area round each personally. I haven't tried uploads or the slideshow yet but Michael had a problem with uploading which is now sorted and Tom Wilson can't get much working at all at the moment. My biggest problem is speed, on both IE7 and Chrome it crawls like a snail, which is not the case with anywhere else I go on the Internet. No doubt any bugs will be ironed out in due course.
Very pleasing shot Brian smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks John.

Nicely composed Brian, both the formal aspects - the church, the steps and the trees and the colours - the flower beds and blossom.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mike, it may be a bit choccie box but it just seemed to fall together as a pleasant picture when I saw it.
