Only of my favourite visits was to Château Mauvesin Barton. We were privileged to visit – the winery visitor centre wasn’t finished – after a little tour and wine tasting I was basically given the run of the estate for an hour or so and managed to produce a handful of photos that I was please with. This shot of the Chateau from across the grounds is perhaps my favourite. I have print on my wall. You cant really make it out but those ripples in the large pond are some sort of beaver and her pup.
The photo is actually a six image panorama composite. Each photo was taken handheld (the tripod I had carelessly left in the mini-bus) and are all 10mm, f/13, 1/80sec at ISO 100 (for the photo-techie minded). I rather like it… as with other recent uploads copies can be purchased from the link below.
