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.

Fireworks at Datchet Cricket Club

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

Every year in November a bonfire and fireworks spectacle takes place at Datchet Cricket Club, Datchet (Berkshire, England). Datchet is a small English Thameside village situated just outside Windsor.

Contrary to my Upton Court Fireworks photography, I went for a different approach to capture fireworks flares, flashes and explosions in this shoot which resulted in rather abstract and surreal light painting.

I took these pictures a while back but have not been able to share online before so here we go now.

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.
