Blenheim Palace

On the way to a dance in Kirtlington, I took in a walk around the park at Blenheim Palace...
 It's big, really big....

I pushed the zoom out to 384mm to get closer
Lake and boathouse
Some residents
A quiet and shaded backwater

I've long been fascinated by sunlight on water and struggled to photograph it. I think I'm getting somewhere. I forced the camera to underexpose by 2 stops. This keeps the highlights under control but leaves the background rather dark. I'm sure it was easier on old-fashioned film cameras

Finally, one for fans of Awww! without Shock :-)
