On the South side of Kedleston Hall is this lovely little summer house. Hexagonal in shape it was designed by George Richardson in the 1770’s.

Looks to me like a prototype for Tardis, Brian, but they didn't bother to paint it.
Brian Walbey: Which would suggest this little summer house might be bigger on the inside than it is on the outside, but if that is the case then there is something wrong with my eyesight. smile
This is beautiful - I love the sheep grazing in the background too!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth, this was early Autumn and there are some nice colours in the trees as well, and it must seem so different to where you live I guess.

Oh, a fine photo/composition with this lovely summer house and the sheep -Kedleston might be 'my' English garden! Autumn has arrived?
Brian Walbey: I just know you would enjoy all of Kedleston Philine, apart from the lovely grounds the house is magnificent inside, I will be doing a series on that shortly.

This is a lovely shot Brian: the light is superb
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Chris, a fine bright early Autumn day.

Now that is a decent summer house ... some might say I great spot for assignations.
Brian Walbey: Some might say that Richard, I couldn't possibly comment!
Love to have my afternoon tea or latte there
Brian Walbey: Indeed so would I Chantal, an SC afternoon tea in the gardens with lots of us there would be even nicer.

England green and pleasant land Brian.
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed Peter, this was a lovely early Autumn afternoon with great lighting.
What a beautiful setting. The sheep in the field give a lovely relaxed feeling.
Brian Walbey: I was so lucky with the lighting this day Mary and not many people about, it made it look so peaceful.
A handsome little building Brian
Brian Walbey: Yes it is Bill, I took some nice close-up pictures both inside and outside on my previous visit to this one.
George Richardson knew his stuff, Brian. This is such a delightful design; a perfect fit for this lovely setting.
Brian Walbey: Yes it's really nice isn't it, and in such a pleasant setting.
If I had one of those in my garden I would definitely be inspired to write a novel! What a lovely spot.
Brian Walbey: I think I would also David, it is nice inside to sit in peace and ponder.
Great colour, composition and shot
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much John.

Peace personified, Brian. And still no people!
Brian Walbey: Yes it was very peaceful that day as I said earlier in the week, but I feel people would have spoilt this shot personally.
Nice spot to wait out a shower smile
Brian Walbey: Indeed it is Tom, fortunately we have been there twice and had lovely weather.

I meant how nice it was without people!
Brian Walbey: I know you did Lisl, Maureen sometimes gets a bit annoyed with me because I prefer not to have people in my shots unnecessarily but if you take a good look at Les Auld's pictures, who is a long standing camera club enthusiast like me, you will rarely see any people in his images either unless they are an integral part of the image. That's how they need to be for us if we want to get anywhere in the club world, rightly or wrongly. Actually lately I have been including people a bit more but they have to be in the "right" place, you will see some later this year probably.

This is a beauty, Brian; one of best, I think, in terms of its appeal. I like the autumnal colours on the trees. Makes me wish this awful weather away even quicker!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Alan, I was really lucky that day with the weather, light and lack of GU at that moment.
Wonderful capture Brian. What a light!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, I was lucky with that light wasn't I.
