tongue One view, that is Lady P grin and the first comment, it will never happen again.
Fabulous picture, I can see you have fun with your lens.
This is a wonderful place to be, especially in this kind in weather.

In this fine shot I see two Parthenons, Bill.
Bill Phillips: They are littered all over the place Ray
It's breathtaking... even through the photo!
Bill Phillips: It is lovely and I haven't done it justice

Beautiful! I can see and feel how enthusiast you both have been - like me! Only the amphore in the foreground looks, sorry, a bit torn (fish-eye?) In the background I recognize the Flora Temple.
Bill Phillips: Yes the lens was on the widest angle and the pot has gone a bit to pot! (Sorry that is an expression that means it has gone wrong!)

"To hear more about the importance of gardens, listen to our podcast here where Head Gardener at Stourhead, Alan Power, reflects on why gardens are such special places."
Bill Phillips: I will check this out later Philine. Thanks for the link
This a great place to be with a camera, Bill. I managed to delete all my pictures of Stourhesd. Beautiful photo.
Bill Phillips: Then you have a perfect excuse to go rthere again Graeme

Very good: I like wide angle landscape shots
Bill Phillips: So do I. This one is not very good though

I like this even more. Wonderful depth to that water
Bill Phillips: Thank you Lisl. Pleased you like it
Not bad Bill but I think that the 'Far Pavillion' will, given time, slide into the lake.
Bill Phillips: It will indeed Richard

As with yesterday, a very agreeable photograph Bill with many fine elements. I like the reflected blues in the water, the dark urn thingy in the foreground and the way you have incorporated the two 'temples' in within the image.
Bill Phillips: I am pleased you like this Chad
Fine panorama, Bill.
Bill Phillips: It doesn't do it justice Tom

I can see why you have revisited, its a beautiful place, the lake looks like it goes on and on, lovely image Bill smile
Bill Phillips: I will go again, partly because i wasn't happy really with the pictures i took
Obviously a place worth revisiting Bill, a very pleasing view.
Bill Phillips: It is a must visit Les!
What a delightful place it is Bill. Lovely shot with the wide angled lense.
Bill Phillips: It is wonderful...have you been Janet?

Beautiful; barely a ripple on the water. No ducks to disturb the tranquility? The stone urn looks a little distorted.
Bill Phillips: They were asleep, the urn is very distorted
Velvia colour, really nice landscape.
Bill Phillips: It is a wonderful place
I know this is probably one of the classic views Bill but it is very good indeed, especially the reflection of the temple in the water.
Bill Phillips: I think every picture of Stourhead has already been done Brian
I think this sis such a wonderful shot! I can imagine it's beauty when the autumn colours arrive.
Bill Phillips: Apparently the experts believe it will be at its' peak on Thursday!

I've looked at it again: you're right...
Bill Phillips: I know

Certainly is a stunning landscape, though your lens seems to be distorting it a bit!
Bill Phillips: That is being kind Ingrid

the colour really grabs you
Bill Phillips: The lack of colour will be a contrast tomorrow Paul
incredibly serene. Lovely..
Bill Phillips: It was very peaceful Sesan
This looks really great- what a cool point of view!
