  • Anglesey Abbey

    Anglesey Abbey

    These pictures were taken ages ago, when I lived in Cambridge, at Anglesey Abbey. I have posted already a few other pictures taken here. At that time we used to come here often, it was the perfect plan at that time for a small family that had just arrived from Madrid, with lots of plans […]

  • Oxburgh Hall

    Oxburgh Hall

    A small set of pictures from Oxburg Hall, these ones taken last June, 2015. Is not very far from Cambridge, up north. I went here with my daughter and we enjoyed a lot this place. All these National Trust places have something to see. The pictures show a cloudy day, but that summer was one…

  • Distorted reality

    Distorted reality

    A convex (or concave?) mirror in a national trust place I visited recently. You know what they say, it all depends on trough what lens (or mirror) you look at things. I should start applying this more often to how I see things recently. I will post more pictures of that house soon. It is…

  • Orford Ness (2)

    Orford Ness (2)

    Here are the remaining pictures from my day trip to Orford Ness. That day started cloudy, and when it was time to leave, the sun appeared. For a moment I though, what if I stay here to see how it looks at night? Actually, you can book a photography tour to do exactly that. Something to…

  • Orford Ness

    Orford Ness

    Last Saturday I spent the day visiting an interesting place. I had heard about it a while ago, just by chance while browsing the National Trust website. Its called Orford Ness, in Suffolk. There is a pretty little village there, with a castle, various pubs and tea rooms. And then, across a short distance, this…

  • Dunwich

    Dunwich

    A small gallery of pictures I took in Dunwich Heath, in Suffolk coast, a while ago. As usually happens, the weather wasn’t very nice. I yet have to visit one of this coast places with good weather. Maybe in Summer? One thing that caught me by surprise was the Sizewell nuclear power station. I had no idea…

  • Diptych (4)

    Diptych (4)

    Another two paired pictures. These white trees are in the Anglesey Abbey’s Winter Garden. I’m finding that I visit quite often this place. It’s very close to Cambridge. The gardens are great for long walks. And I always find something that grabs my attention. The National Trust membership is proving to be worth it.

  • Weekly Photo Challenge: Contrast.

    Weekly Photo Challenge: Contrast.

    An old windmill in Wicken Fen, a National Trust natural park close to Cambridge. I like the contrast between the white and black wood. Sometimes a picture just asks for a black and white processing, I think. There are a lot of windmills around here it seems.

  • Weekly Photo Challenge: Abandoned

    Weekly Photo Challenge: Abandoned

    Here is my picture for this weekly photo challenge. It’s not the first time I post some old door pictures here. There is something about them that makes you wonder: When was the last time it was opened? This one is in Anglesey Abbey gardens, an old house close to Cambridge. It belongs to the…
