photoblog image Blenheim Palace

Blenheim Palace

Another shot from inside the grounds at Blenheim Palace. This is in the back area of the gardens. The shadows on these stairs were just to beautiful to pass up.

Excellent eye! Great lines and a great angle. I like how the shadows lead your eye down the steps and the railing kinda jumps in there to throw you a curve ball.

I see why you shot this. Who could resist the pattern's that nature creates.
Spectacular light and shadows! I'm looking for this kind of light these days!

Wonderful image. I'd have shot that too! Thanks for the visit, Happy Holidays & God Bless!
Brilliantly seen effects of these shadows which
are over the top spectacular, and I really hope
that this becomes a series as I am very interested.

Wow .. the shadows are outstanding
Well spotted and a lovely composition & capture. I went shadow chasing here in London over the summer, and didn't get anything as detailed or spectacular like this tongue
Love the abstract nature of this shot Charles. Very well seen.

Un graphisme ombre et lumière très chic.
So glad you didn't give this a pass, Charles. It is a classic.
Very good. Great that you saw this photo opportunity.
