Wrest Park II

Fast changing skies, compared to the previous shot taken an hour earlier. The building in the background is the bowling green house.

Boy I'll say the skies are changing! I like this one alot- the darkening skies fit the monument well.
John Prior: Thanks Elizabeth, the sky did add drama.

They really did live life in style with that bowling green house and its a great statue, were there many statues at this park smile
John Prior: There were lots of smaller statues, but it seemed to me that many had been cleaned to within an 'inch of their lives', making them look new but rather soft in definition.
Great statue isn't it. BTW I think the TV item was on ITV news towards the end of last week.
John Prior: Thanks Brian, oh well there was a lot online about it, we picked it because it was fairly close and have not used our English Heritage membership much this year. I think I prefer EH stewardship to that of the NT.

the sentiment of the statue seems to work with the dramatic sky.
John Prior: Thanks Otto, I thought the statues here had been over cleaned, but this one was unusual, the horse is being steadied by the groom on the other side.
The dramatic sky really lifts this picture John
John Prior: Thanks Bill, I thought it really helped.
