Thanks. Most of it went down my neck. I can confirm that Billingham bags are indeed very waterproof.And looking at your photos in the other threads, (bridges, trees, rivers etc) you've got more atmosphere from the bad weather than you probably would tomorrow.
All great shots Richard.
We pre-empted that issue by buying a ticket to the gardens beforehand. £10 inc. parking during an allocated timeslot. I don't normally like contributing to the coffers there, (looking forward to the revolution as I do!) but it promised to be a wonderful light show and it's been a dreary december, so...... Unfortunately it was just OK, so we won't be darkening that particular doorstep again!A few years ago we were near Chatsworth and I noticed it was well illuminated at night.
One evening I drove through the estate on one of the public roads and no sooner had I got out of the car to try and take a photo, than I was surrounded by security patrols.
I was told in no uncertain terms that I wasn't allowed to stop the car and they suspected me of poaching the deer.
