Popped to this location after university today. Shame as as I walked around the lake they were removing a load of dead swans on full PPE gear as there is bird flu there. I have a colour version on Flickr but haven't posted it here as I feel the angle I shot it makes it lean back and I didn't like it after I uploaded it so I'll have to make a colour version of this file!

I'm liking the contrast here Gareth, you've done well to keep the clouds in the background, tonewise.

Much prefer the mono version this time. Super image.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

I generally view the work in shades of grey and, despite the attractiveness of the mono picture, I prefer the colour one. I think it's down to the lovey shade of blue on the door: it works perfectly with the whitewashed stone.

I'd love to visit the clock tower. It looks to be a fun place.

Getting older and grumpier. Taking longer to decide which lens to use today.

Thanks Nigel, it's a lovely walk around the lake, there even is a place for food and ice cream
