photoblog image Biddulph Grange Garden 1/7

Biddulph Grange Garden 1/7

Because of the way I file my images out of my cameras (3 of) I know that last year I took precisely 3,268 photographs and this is among my most favourite half dozen of them all. It is taken at the National Trust’s Biddulph Grange Garden near Stoke-on-Trent and is the reflection of the main house in one end of the lake below. You get to see the house tomorrow.

Brian Walbey: Thanks Beth.

Brian Walbey: I'm showing the house tomorrow Peter.
I do like this composition, Brian! Lovely reflections - I look forward to tomorrow!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth. BTW there are currently two ladies from church reading your Dad's books, one on #3 and the other on #1, they can't put them down.
Very nicely framed with these reflections Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, I thought it worked quite well.

That is a fine reflection Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris, sometimes the part is better than the whole.
That's saying a lot, Brian...to be able to pick your top half-dozen out of over 3K shots. WOW. I wonder if I could do that???
Brian Walbey: I guess my pick of shots is because I use some of them in competitions at my camera club so get a bit particular at times. I suspect you take several thousand shots every year as well.

I can see why you like it so much, Brian
Brian Walbey: Sometimes the part is better than the whole. It is in an exhibition in Leicester later on this month.

That are a lot of pictures. I do love this one. For some reason I always like reflections, maybe because I like water...

Excellent. I have scrolled to include only the reflection. That would also make a great picture.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Louis, that is another possibility to think about.
It certainly lends the building a certain vibrancy Brian.

I was looking closely for frogs in the lily pads. This is a gorgeous shot.
Brian Walbey: I didn't see any Frogs but there are some very large Carp in the waters.
I can see why you like it, Brian, I'm a sucker for reflection shots...

Oh very good; I can see what attracted yo to this view. I like the steps and balustrade especially, as well as the rippled reflection.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan, sometimes the part is more interesting than the whole.
Nice shot, Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom.
