An early winter afternoon in Virginia Water

Under - Art, Inspiration, My Musings, Nature, Photography, Photolog

An early winter afternoon photo shoot at Virginia Water Lake which lies within Windsor Great Park. The lake is mostly in Surrey county, though the western extremities are in the civil parishes of Old Windsor and Sunninghill and Ascot in Berkshire, England.

According to Wikipedia the shores of the lake have recently been used for lakeside scenes in the Harry Potter films. You can view the complete set at Flickr.

The Copper Horse, Windsor Great Park

Under - Art, Inspiration, My Musings, Nature, Photography, Photolog

This impressive statue is located at the end of the Long Walk in Windsor Great Park, Berkshire, England. The Long Walk runs around 3 miles (5km) from the Windsor Castle ending at Snow Hill where The Copper Horse statue is located. The spot provides an excellent view back to the Castle and surrounding areas. The park which served as a private hunting ground of Windsor Castle for many centuries is largely open to public now and an attraction for photographers like me.

Unlike my previous morning photography walk, this was late afternoon/early evening and the statue of George III appeared to be making some sort of statement in front of the setting sun.

The statue, commissioned by George IV, bears an ironic inscription: ‘the best of fathers’ in Latin. Like so many father-son relationships in the Hanoverian family, George III and George IV were known to have despised one another.

One winter’s day in Black Park

Under - Art, Inspiration, My Musings, Nature, Photography, Photolog

Some photographs from Black Park Lake that I took one winter’s morning. The park offers a different kind of experience in winter when it is easier to get lost into the woods.

Black Park is 530 acres of woodland and heathland just outside London with a centre-piece lake in Wexham, Buckinghamshire, England. The site is next to Pinewood Film Studios and has been used for many films and TV productions such as James Bond, Harry Potter and Sleepy Hollow to name a few.

Landscape photography by John Parminter

Under - Art, Geography, Inspiration, Nature, Photography

This spectacular landscape photography by John Parminter offers ever-changing views of mountains, valleys, rivers and lakes of Scottish Highlands and English Lake District.

The breathtaking beauty and harsh ruggedness of Scotland and Wales, home to some of the UK’s most amazing sceneries, is a constant source of inspiration both to explore and photograph.

I was born and brought up in a rural community in the English county of Cumbria, home to the Lake District or Lakeland as it’s sometimes known.

The fells and mountains of Cumbria have always been a big influence on me and I’m regularly walking and running over them either for pleasure or in competition.

After spending many years enjoying the scenery that’s on offer, I decided to try and capture, in images, the natural beauty that I’m fortunate to live and spend my recreational time in.

I’ve had tremendous enjoyment capturing these images and hope to pass on some of their pleasure to you, they are for your enjoyment to view as much as mine.
