The orangery at Hanbury Hall, viewed from the footpath through the grounds.

Buildings such as this are a handy way of working out where south is! I’ve been inside and the amount of light it collects is amazing. One of the tiles – made when the building was built – still has the paw print of the dog that stepped in the wet clay.

Photography stuff: 18-70mm lens at 35mm, 1/1000 sec at f/4.2 (expose for the highlights – deal with the shadows in post production).
