a county?
a garden?

Do you take time lapse photos of subjects like this as well?
Bill Phillips: Croome Court. The house and gardens was were we had the last Shutterchance gathering in September last year. Owned by theNational Trust. The bought it originally for the gardens which were the first created by Lancelot "Capability" Brown and which the trust has restored. It is only about 20 minutes drive from us and Ange and I enjoy going here fairly frequently
