It’s a pleasure that I can share these photos with you.
This weekend I am taking a photography course. 14 hours of solid learning. To date I’m a point and press type of photographer; on occasion I’ll turn off the auto focus to capture something closer or nearer to me but that’s as far as I go. For a few years I’ve had a nice Canon 550D and so I’m hoping this weekend I’ll start to learn how to take really nice picture.
That said, I think these ones of Scotney Castle came out okay with the point & press system!
Unfortunately Scotney Castle isn’t a castle at all. It was a substantial Georgian house and a Victorian demolished most of it, creating a folly in his garden and dumping a lump of horrid Victoriana on the hill.
The National Trust has only recently begun to open the more modern house, after its chatelaine died a few years ago. Personally, I wouldn’t bother opening it.
The folly is dreamy, especially at 10am on a sunny autumn morning.
