Nostell Priory

This fine Palladian house, built on the site where once there was a priory, has fine examples of plasterwork, initially in the Rococo style by James Paine and later in neo-classical by Robert Adam.

Its about to get vacuumed into the big sky by a monstrous Mother Ship, Bill....RUN!
Bill Phillips: Yep it is doomed Ray
It's an awesome building - but that sky is really incredible!
Bill Phillips: It is a handsome house Elizabeth
It's a grand old house if you can call it that Bill... with a sky like that above it... we humans look quite small... don't we?....petersmile
Bill Phillips: We are but grains of sand in the scheme of things Peter

The skies seem to be paying tribute to this fine Palladian House, Bill!
Bill Phillips: It was good to see a sky without rain falling out of it Ginnie

Bill Phillips: It was only more boring old grass

Flipping heck Bill ... stop showing off with your brilliant skies ...Just remember scapes like this have been two a penny this year.

heck you can't really beat an Adam house design really but if you are short of a bob or two you can always imputst a mock Adam's fireplace into your front room .... mind you it will be made of a building plastic.
Bill Phillips: Mr Evans is having a clearance sale in this shed by all accounts

Fine use of the wide angle to catch all those clouds over the pediment!
Bill Phillips: Made a change for it not to be raining out of a leaden sky
That's an incredible sky Bill a superb capture on its own.
Bill Phillips: The house was just there as background grin
Looks a bit like Province House in our capital:

Looks like the sky above London, as seen during televised Olympic events. Otherwise, I would have suspected the shed again smile
Bill Phillips: The shed is overflowing by all accounts.
With that amazing sky overhead,it looks as if Nature is giving Paine & Adam a run for their money. A spectacular shot, Bill.
Bill Phillips: Nature can always outdo even our finest Beverly

That sky is worthy of its own picture, but with the house giving the sky perspective (or the other way round) - wow!
Bill Phillips: I thought it would make a change for the house to play second fiddle
This looks another fine house Bill, below a wonderful sky.
Bill Phillips: One to add to your list and not all that far from you Brian
Fine sky!
Bill Phillips: Not bad is it smile

Never mind all that pretentious clap trap; just look at that fabulous sky! The house looks so insignificant.
Bill Phillips: Pretentious claptrap????
Good shot with a superb sky
Bill Phillips: Thanks John. We were lucky to actually see some sun!
Fine foreground , but the sky is to dark for me Bill.I think there is a good b+w in this .
Bill Phillips: I did contemplate b&w. Surprised you find the sky dark with your Armageddon efforts
Good match, that sky and the architecture.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Graeme
nicely done. excellent capture with the clouds too
Bill Phillips: Thank you Ayush
It does look like a - close encounter - sky. Best be taking cover inside the lovely estate home.
