A Stark Winter's Day
There's a large park near where I live that is basically the grounds of an old stately home, called Marley Park. It often hosts concerts during the summer months and is quite famous. In winter though, it can be quite empty, and the atmosphere of the place when it is not full of people is really beautiful. You don't feel like you're in a city any more and there is a lovely serenity to the place. I managed to spend a short time there at the weekend, and I hadn't actually planned to take my camera with me, but at the last minute, I threw my NEX-7 in my bag as I headed out the door. I was glad I did. There was still some activity in the park, but compared to the summer months it was peaceful. And so, here are a few photographs of the stark beauty of the place (without any more intrusive commentary form your's truly). Enjoy!
For those interested in the technical information, these were taken with a Sony NEX-7 using a 50mm Sony f/1.8. Processed in Lightroom using some of my upcoming "Film Candy" Lightroom presets.
