Knole: Powerplay Gardening

Another trip out and another chance to visit some interesting and inspiring gardens last week. We travelled to see friends in Sussex and our lunch time stop was Knole near Sevenoaks, Kent, a large estate still owned by the Sackville family (of Vita fame) and part run by the National Trust. 311 more words


The Great Escape

A great escape should be on everyones calendar, it does you the world of good and you come back in such a good mood!  Last summer I went away with a friend for a weekend on a whirlwind tour of houses and gardens.   289 more words

Get Out

Knole (Part 2)

Following on from Sunday’s blog post, here are the rest of my images from my wanderings at Knole.  The colours and appearance of the final image are as close as possible to the view that unfolded before me when I walked down the hill; the muted tones struck me as unusual and I felt obliged to try to capture them!


Knole (Part 1)

On a sunny morning, I headed to Knole, a National Trust property set in a deer park (photograph here in case you missed it) in Sevenoaks, Kent.   49 more words


Out of Focus

After weeks of carefully calculating hyperfocal distances (yes, that was me on the beach with the yellow measuring tape) to ensure sharp images for my college project, I decided to be a little self-indulgent this week and give ‘intentional camera movement’ another go.   83 more words


On the Hill

Wildlife photography is not my forte, but I couldn’t miss this opportunity.  Knole Park, in Sevenoaks, is home to 350 wild deer and visitors are almost guaranteed to see at least one or two.
