We are parked in a corner of Chatsworth Estate. Very pleasant it is too. A grand day is promised. It was cool first thing but we got out as dawn was breaking. A bit chilly with a light frost but no wind so a lovely morning.
Queen Mary’s Bower House. Mary Queen of Scotts must have been detained in every house in the country with more than three rooms………when they ran out of houses they chopped off her head………seems a bit harsh but times were different then. The last image is HDR as are the ones that follow.
Okay here is the house. The Duke of Devonshire must have had the double glazing salesman round. Just sign here your Dukeship and you'll save the cost of the windows in reduced heating bills……… I bet he neglected to mention it’ll take about two hundred years!
Tomorrow I’ll go out with the long lens as there are Deer, Heron and woodpeckers to annoy.
