Fountain - Black and White

Fountain Photography in Stratford Park

My walk this week through Stratford Park in Stroud brought me to a viewpoint where I could see that the fountain in the centre of the lake is offset from the vertical and rotates in at an angle. The effect against the dark background of trees was quite mesmerising.

Photographing the fountain was great fun at the time, and also afterwards when I increased the contrast in a couple of the shots and submitted one to Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness blog post – MM 4-28.Continue reading

Margam Castle and Da Vinci’s Demons

My last few posts have been about the visits I made to waterfalls in the South Wales Valleys region as part of the Valleys Regional Park Community Tourism Conference. The conference was held in the Orangery at Margam Park, home of Margam Castle, one of the sets for the much anticipated Da Vinci’s Demon series. It is an amazing place and unlike the waterfalls featured in previous posts, I can for once say that I have visited Margam Park on previous occasions.

Some of these photos are available for sale at the StillWalks PhotoShelter site.
