Ingatestone Hall

Ingatestone Hall Title: Ingatestone Hall
Location: Ingatestone Hall, Essex
Camera: Canon EOS 600 / Sigma 21-35mm EF
Film: Kodak Gold 200
Notes: I loved the shadow falling across the immaculately manicured lawn in the courtyard of Ingatestone Hall. The house was built by Sir William Petre in 1541, and his descendants have lived there ever since – the current occupant is Lord Petre, the 18th Baron and Lord Lieutenant of Essex. It’s a bit surprising the the tree doesn’t have more leaves, given that it was May (1994) when I took this, but it means the shadow is very well defined. I also liked the way the bough of the tree framed the top of the image.
