Day #107Title: Spring Reflections
Location: Ingatestone Hall
Camera: Canon EOS 30D / 24-105mm EF f/4 L IS USM
Notes: My local club run monthly photoshoots midweek during the Spring and Summer months. This is the first I’ve been able to get to this year, at the local manor house, Ingatestone Hall. It’s a beautiful Tudor building in well kept grounds, the family seat of Lord Petre. In July, they have an evening of Summer Jazz on the lawn. Twenty-five of us descended to make some pictures this morning. I managed to sneak this one when the sun was out and there were no other photographers in the frame!


  • What a picture! Ingatestone Hall was featured very recently on the BBC FOUR programme ‘Sacred Music’ in connection with the life and work of William Byrd, Elizabethan composer, whose Patron was John Petre. Byrd lived the last 30 years of his life in nearby Stondon Massey, Essex.

  • Thanks Andrew, interesting info about Mr Byrd.
