This collage of shots were taken at Hever Castle whilst we were in the UK last summer.began as a country house, built in the 13th century. From 1462 to 1539 it was the seat of the Boleyn, originally 'Bullen', family.

Anne Boleyn, the second queen consort of King Henry VIII of England, spent her early youth there, after her father, Thomas Boleyn had inherited it in 1505. He had been born there in 1477, and the castle passed to him upon the death of his father, Sir William Boleyn. It later came into the possession of King Henry's fourth wife, Anne of Cleves. In the 21st century the castle is a tourist attraction.

The first shot shows the side of the castle and other three show the grounds. The shots are not as sharp as I would like because I was using my new Canon and didnt realize it was on a setting to take smaller shots suitable for the internet.

Hi David.
A lovely collage work each shot is so well captured with beautiful diffused light and lovely scenic shots with beautiful greenery and lovely houses.
Kind Regards

Though the sky in each shot is quite burned out but still you managed to keep good details of the castle, David!

Nice color contrasts with amazing sharpness and from a well thought POV.
Good use of the available natural light.

Thanks for sharing.

Kind regards,

this is a great idea to really give the viewer a good sense of the place, what a great place to have a camera!
