they call those leading lines in photography, nice leading lines! Have a lovely Easter holiday.
You learn something new every day... and I'll remember that ;DI hope you have a lovely Easter holiday too and thanks for visiting my place.
How stunning, I didn't think you could get that close?
Not only did I get close... I actually went inside. I also had lunch too!It was a great day.Thanks for stopping by... I hope you have a great Easter Sunday
I forgot to say I'll be writing a post about my visit soon ;D
Beautiful, and the driveway really does draw you in to the picture :)
Thanks Sara,I've taken photo's nearer the Castle but I liked the composition of this one.I hope you had a great Easter break
Lovely photo. It looks quite magical - like an enchanted castle!
It does have a nice feel to it Sarah and I can understand why the Royal Family like to stay over the summer.I've taken more photos that I hope to publish soon.Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great week ahead.
I had to go and Google it but yes. it is Balmoral. Wow - and you went inside. Did Her Majesty give you a cup of tea, LOL.
It certainly was Balmoral and yes we did go inside for a cuppa... in fact we had lunch! The flag wasn't flying so Her Majesty wasn't home. She tends to come up here in the summer months. Everything in the garden is timed to coincide with her visit. Posies and flowers from the garden throughout the Castle. It was a fascinating day and I hope to revisit later in the summer to see it in it's full glory.Thanks for your visit... although we're not quite Balmoral any visitor gets a cuppa here ;DHave a great week and I'll see you soon.
What a pretty place!!!! Happy Easter! #MySundayPhoto
It was indeed. The grounds and gardens were lovely even at this time of the year. I hope to go back to revisit later to see it in full bloom.I've got more pictures to show you once I get organised and write a post.I hope you had a lovely Easter and that you're week is going well.
Wow what an imposing and impressive looking building, stunning.
It is and set in beautiful surroundings. I hope to show more pics soon... in the meantime have a super week and thanks for taking the time to visit.
Fabulous photo of a castle I've only seen from a distance :) Happy Easter!
Well I got up close and personal Elizabeth. We had lunch there and went inside to the Ballroom as well as wondering around the gardens and grounds. I've more photo's to show you in a future post (hopefully) once I get organised.We did have a lovely Easter and I hope you enjoyed your's too.Chat again soon and thanks for popping over to my place.
Wow what an impressive castle, I bet it's beautiful inside Thank you for linking up
We were only allowed into the Ballroom but it was fascinating especially to see the Royal children's toy's on display. They had video's playing which brought the displays to life. Prince Charles had an incredible car but we weren't allowed to take photo's. But we had lunch there and wondered around the greenhouses, gardens and grounds. It was a really good day.Thanks for taking the time to come and visit my post. I know it must be quite a task to get around everyone.Have a great week and thanks for hosting once again.
this is wonderful. i really like this shot. you have set up the photo really well. happy easter.
Thanks Sherry... I was happy with the result.I've taken lots more around the estate that I hope to post soon.Thanks for your Easter wishes... we had a great time.Have a good week and thanks for your visit.
Wonderful photo, looks a very grand place. Happy Easter :)
Thanks Lisa, it's the Queen's country retreat so I suppose it will be a little on the grand side.We had a lovely Easter and I hope you did too. I'm rather late visiting and replying to comments but I hope to get up to date soon.
Like stepping back in time! :)
It was indeed Rita although the gift shop and cafe soon bring you back up to date.I want to return later in the season to check out the gardens etc as they are only just waking up after winter.Lovely to see you and have you leave a comment.I'm so late with my replies having had visitors over Easter but I hope to see you soon.
Stunning photo. You should come and link up to my weekly #CheckOutThatView Linky
Thank you Emma, that sounds like a great idea.I'll pop across to check your linky out ;DThanks for stopping by, commenting and inviting me to join you.Have a great week and I'll hopefully see you soon
Thanks for linking up. It really is a gorgeous photo. x
What a beautiful scene and building x
It was a great day out Kim and one I want to repeat later in the summer.The gardens are only just waking up after winter so there's not a lot to see in the herbaceous borders or rose garden yet. I'm in the middle of writing a Balmoral post and hope to post it within the next few days.Have a great week and thanks for visiting my place.
Beautiful photo, so well framed with the trees.Darla
Thanks Darla, I was happy that I managed to get a good picture of something so steeped with history. It wasn't the best of days to take photo's due to the light or lack of it, but at least I managed to get a few reasonable ones.I plan to return later in the summer (before Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth goes to stay for her vacation) The gardens and vegetable plots are all timed to be at their best for when the Royal's visit. Thanks for visiting and I'll see you there! ;D
My Goodness, you really HAVE tidied-up the garden!
Hehe... oh I wish Mark, Although I have been out in my garden over the last two days. The weather has been glorious here (the hottest in the WHOLE of the UK yesterday) but there's still so much to do and I'm afraid the veg plot hasn't even been started! I know... shocking isn't it?Have a great week and I'll just enjoy your veg plot from a distance.
I get so excited to see you here and love to read your thoughts and comments.I always try to answer each one personally (I think it's only polite)...♥...I truly appreciate your precious time here so thank you ...♥...
