Chatsworth Revisited

Hi folks,

yesterday I was told off very wisely by Margaret for taking pictures without my stick which I agree was foolish on my part so you will have to make do with archive images until I can support myself properly.

May last year we visited Chatsworth a Stately Home in Derbyshire 

In the grounds, this waterfall which runs from the River Derwent and ends in the fountain above

Great stairs.

Painted Hall with wonderful ceilings creating 3D illusion's in the wall paintwork.

Dining Room, laid out for a State Banquet.

Close up of table layout, Cranberry Glassware.

Lastly the Sculpture gallery with it's wonderful collection.

Hope you enjoyed the visit, able to take shots throughout the house which I did. As a photographer I was able to freely take shots of the interior with ease. Tripods and flash where not allowed  which I completely agree with.

Can't wait to be well again and a return visit is on the cards.

Now on the mend, hiccups subsided so feel normal again, two weeks till I am able to bend my knee and possibly get in a car as a passenger.

Best regards, Mike

  5. Mike,
    The places you "take" me leave me leave me breathless! The UK is absolutely magnificent and beautiful. I am really thinking of discussing a trip there with Pat. Thank you so much for sharing!
