Following my wife’s rather excellent post on the history of Minster Lovell Hall a few months ago, we decided it was high time for another visit – and what a atmospheric visit it was, with heavy skies, rain, wind and the occasional ray of sunshine all helping to create a very memorable half term afternoon.
Location: Minster Lovell Hall, near Witney Oxfordshire
While we were there I took the opportunity to have a play with some gradient filters on my camera. I’m talking actual physical filters here – not apps or electotrickery. I’m pretty new to using them, but I’m so glad I had them on me to help capture a the ‘mood’ of the ruins as we explored them – the light was almost sepia!
Follow me and I’ll show you around…
Whilst we were exploring the tower, the heavens opened with a mighty deluge, followed almost immediately by blue sky and bright sunshine – it lead to the most wonderful rainbow!
Thanks to the wonderful weather, we had a fabulously moody and atmospheric wander around the ruins and I’m pretty certain we’ll be back for more – bring on the rain!
Farewell my friends & have a happy Halloween tomorrow!
