Church at Croome Court

© Gerard Tohill 2016

We spent the morning at Croome Court, which is a gem of a place – an old stately home that was re-purposed many times and finally left derelict. The National Trust owns it now, so hopefully things will improve. Inside the house, it’s a work in progress, but the extensive grounds are full of things to photograph.

The grounds were the first work of the noted landscaper ‘Capability’ Brown. Our garden at home, on the other hand, was designed by one of his less capable descendants, ‘Haphazard’ Smith.

I could not resist this framed view of the church, taken from the path down to the house.

Photography stuff: Nothing special here – 70-200mm lens at 65mm, 1/1000 sec at f/3.2
