Charlecote Manor - The Grounds 6/7

I came across this fine bridge in the grounds of Charlecote Manor, unfortunately the GUW seemed glued to the spot, but at least they are not too prominent in the picture. This is over a small stream (see tomorrow) that runs down to join the River Avon a bit further along over the small waterfall I showed on Thursday.

It is a very attractive bridge, Brian.
Brian Walbey: And quite old by the look of it Ray.
The GUW add scale to this lovely bridge Brian... fine image....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Yes that small group fill the scene, but just before this the bridge was heaving with people, I had to wait quite a while for it to clear.

Wonder what they are looking at. Nice old bridge, lovely image.
Brian Walbey: Quite a nice stream, (see tomorrow) runs underneath.
Oh I love that old bridge, Brian! It's wonderful!
Brian Walbey: yes it must be quite old and the stonework shows the years.

I told Astrid the other day that I'm getting to like including people more and more into my shots, Brian...because they give scale and...accessibility? This is delightful and is not at all diminished by the GUW, imho.
Brian Walbey: I don't disagree Ginnie, it depends on the subject matter I think, in this case this small group work well, but a bit earlier on the bridge was heaving with people.

I think the people show scale to the bridge Brian, surely this is a feature the judges would appreciate if you entered this picture for a competition
Brian Walbey: You are right about the people and I think a judge would agree also, what he would hate would be the brown grassless patch in the foreground.

The 'GUW' don't disturb in my view - a wonderful bridge , almost a Palladian bridge.
Brian Walbey: NO in this case the small group work in the picture but earlier on the whole bridge was crowded with people, far too many for me.
I think people get mesmerised by water Brian. Great view of this lovely bridge
Brian Walbey: Indeed they do Janet, a bit like standing on the end of a pier looking down and getting that strange urge to jump in. It is a fine old bridge.
I like the fact that there are people in the shot.
Brian Walbey: Yes I do also Mary, just the right number, a few minutes before it was crowded out with people and wouldn't look so good.
It's a lovely bridge Brian despite the GUW.
Brian Walbey: Indeed ii is Pauline, in this case I think the few people help the picture.

Surprisingly, I'm not too worried about the GUs here; the give the bridge some scale. Did you try shouting "Free tea in the cafe"?
Brian Walbey: I didn't Alan, but I was very patient and waited until a great mob of people had vacated the bridge and left just these four there in what I thought was a good position.
The gentry did like to have classy bridges around the place, didn't they?
Brian Walbey: Yes they did Tom, and the money and labour to build them.
