Stable Block & Clock Tower, Nostell Priory
Yesterday started off wet and miserable but much to my surprise it cleared up just after lunch so I took myself off to Nostell Priory for a walk - with camera of course. :) Obviously this is a shot that is only possible in winter but I thought the tree branches, although a little busy, formed a nice frame for the tower whilst the clouds were a real bonus!

Works very well, you must have cut some branches down to get such a perfect framing, for me the image is set of by the warm colour of the sun shine, well spotted and taken

Like all good landscape photographers Steve, in my bag I carry a triple-extension ladder; chainsaw; bill hook and a high powered air rifle for removing those pesky flying critters and illuminated lights that always seem to be in the way of a good shot!

Perfect framing Keith without obscuring or detracting from the main point of interest.
Pin sharp, lovely colours and smashing clouds, well done that man, like it loads.
And glad to herar your camera bag is well stocked with essential accoutrements

Can't believe you managed to find this gap in the branches and twigs Keith, just amazing.
Must have taken quite a bit of searching and positioning to get it right, so well done for that, I'm impressed.
It looks like the skirt around the cupola is made of lead, quite a bit of it too, could not tell what material it was from the mono.

I was well chuffed when I first spotted the potential in this shot Jeffrey and it did take me a while to find this position. It was worth it though because I haven't cloned out anything on the shot. The bottom third is clad in lead, the middle third looks like well-tarnished copper. I'm not sure about the top third, it looks like stone with the dome sheathed in metal, possibly very thin lead.

Excellent use of the trees for framing giving a strong composition and I can only agree with the comments above, well done keith.

It may be busy what what a delight it is nevertheless. I may have been tempted to just clone a little of each of the branches where they appear to touch the tower just to give a little space to it. I think there are just two significant branches so it would not be too much of an issue. It;s good to see the tower in the context of its surroundings.
