Polesden Lacey

Another sunny Sunday beckoned myself and friend Natalia to visit another National Trust venue, this time stunning Polesden Lacey, a majestic Edwardian House set in the beautiful Surrey countryside. The grounds are beautifully arranged and tended with seas of tulips and daffodils all over the estate. The house has some quite opulent interiors, with furnishings that are both lavish and of the age. I hope my photos here can do them some justice. Most are in colour, but some are rendered in black and white. Occasionally, I would photograph Natalia in the scene outdoors, to lend the image some scale. All the images were taken with one of the Nikkors 35mm F/2 AF-D, the 50mm F/1.8G AF-S, or the Tokina 11-16mm F/2.8 (used as a 16mm prime). There may be one or two below taken with my phone too, the Nokia N8.I hope you enjoy the photos, and perhaps make your own visit to this beautiful place.
