Seeing this in black and white reminds me of early visits - was it all black and white then? Must be guide book memories
Bill Phillips: The world only became colour in the late 60s

Oh, the iconic view! - and even in B&W a real delight! The reflections in the lake are wonderful.
Bill Phillips: It was a perfect still morning Philine.

Bill Phillips: Thanks Ayush. Stourhead is a gem

Just what the world needed, yet another photograph of Stourhead.
Bill Phillips: Quite. Almost as dull as pictures of lines representing months of the year

I think it is a bit too...umh...grey, Bill.

Perhaps a more manly twist of the contrast knob would be in order.
Bill Phillips: Strewth mate!!! how black do you want it?

Very nice. I like the look of the water.
Bill Phillips: It was a perfectly still morning Mary
It works very well in grey&grey, Bill
Bill Phillips: I usually get complaints that they are too dark and gloomy. Actually I don't think this is too bad. I have a much blacker version in lightroom
Lovely spot > and I really would love this in colour.
Bill Phillips: I have posted pictures of Stourhead in colour in the past Jacquelyn
I believe this is the classic view of Stourhead, it looks great in mono. I might well shoot the next judge who comes to the club and uses the expression "choccie box", in my mind chocolate manufacturers would only use the very best photos on their boxes, and one wonders why those photos never win!!
Bill Phillips: Choccie box is what I do Briangrin

An iconic view. Looks as though it could be a shot from the 30s.
Bill Phillips: When all the world was in shades of grey
More classic stuff, Bill.
Bill Phillips: Not black enough for some, usually I get told they are too dark
What a delightful place Bill!
Bill Phillips: Indeed it is Richard
This is stunning Bill..Black and white becoming your speciality!
Bill Phillips: I have always liked b&w Ronky but I am a bit of a novice at actually doing it

Now don't single out the blacks. There are whites as well. And the whole spectrum in-between.

Nonetheless, a great picture. Even choccies are good. Increases the libido, so I am told.
Bill Phillips: Quite right and I had tried to get the full range!
Very interesting shots, and nice reflections.
Bill Phillips: Thanks Sheila. Stourhead is a favourite place of mine
Certainly a grand bit of landscaping, good composition Bill
Bill Phillips: It was good enough for Turner so it's good enough for me John
Truly beautiful...
