Photographer's Note

Today marks the first anniversary of my TE membership and to celebrate the occasion I am posting a shot taken at Stowe in the company of four other TE members on my recent visit to the UK. Richard, Anne, Martin and Iain, thank you all for a super time spent together. It was everything I wished for and more than I expected!

Living in a country with little water and few trees, Stowe Gardens was a delight to the eye. Designed by the celebrated and well known English landscape architect Lancelot "Capability" Brown it epitomises the picturesque garden style which emerged in England in the 18th century, one of the growing currents of the larger Romantic movement. The style emulated the allegorical landscape paintings of European artists, especially Claude Lorraine, Poussin and Salvator Rosa. Manicured hills, lakes and trees dotted with allegorical temples were sculpted into the land.

In this shot, I have taken some 'artistic licence' with the colour in an attempt at highlighting the bucolic and romantic nature of the scene.
