It took some time to share this because I could not quite get the result I was looking for using my earlier techniques. So I kept revisiting and giving up on this photo for a while. I still have several other photos from the same visit, that I plan to share over the coming weeks.

  2. […] in very different conditions. This photo is from the same visit to Chartwell where I took the view of the house from across the pond, and several photos of flowers. After spending some time with the flowers I went for a walk in the […]
