It was a cold winter morning at Croome Court where I was hoping for plenty of mist and a hard ground frost. Unfortunately I didn’t get the mist I was hoping for but I still managed to capture this lovely image during blue hour before sunrise.
I used the tree on the left to frame Croome Court Mansion while using the Chinese Bridge to lead the eye through the scene. It is a fairly simple shot but quite difficult to frame to get the best composition minimising the distractions while retaining the key points of interest. It is one of those shots where the slightest of movements changes the composition and very tight to shoot as there is a tree just to the right which I didn’t want in the scene.
Croome court is a 18th Century Neo-Palladian Mansion located in Worcestershire and is a part of the National Trust.
