Blog 59 - Croome Court on a very cold day, Croome is a mid-18th-century Neo-Palladian mansion surrounded by extensive landscaped parkland near Pershore in south Worcestershire, The mansion and park were designed by Lancelot "Capability" Brown for the 6th Earl of Coventry, and were Brown's first landscape design and with commanding views over the Malverns. The parkland was nearly lost, but now owned and managed by the National Trust.
On one of the coldest days i have photographed luckily no wind as it was -8 on the car display as arrived in the dark, with head torch on and frosty ground I did short walk across two fields to this beautiful location, I had previously visited on a busy Sunday for a walk and obligatory tea and cake this place holds many stories including a secret wartime airbase, as walked the ground we followed the man made lake with view to the house, took a shot with my phone and made a mental note to return for an early morning shoot.
So at 7.00am was ready sun was coming up with very clear sky was hoping for a bit mist but didn’t happen, it was a beautiful morning and one that enjoyed more just being there watching nature wake up than the actual photos I shot. well worth a visit
