It's not every day (or night) you get a chance to visit a famous National Trust site for some photography, so when those of us in Buckingham Camera Club were presented with the opportunity to visit Stowe at night, I was one of a group who jumped at the opportunity.



This shot depicts the Temple of Ancient Virtue. The temple was commissioned by Lord Cobham to honour four great Greek men: Socrates, Homer, Lycurgus and Epaminondas. It is alleged that the four ancient Greeks represented virtues apparently lacking in Lord Cobham's contemporaries. To complete the satire, the Temple of Modern Virtue was deliberately constructed in a ruined state. Oh the fun you can have with a sense of humor and a pile of cash.



Returning to all things photographic, this shot was a long exposure in near total darkness, with the temple illuminated by torchlight. A bit of trial and error was required, not least because the temple has recently been cleaned (it was covered in ivy for a location in the forthcoming "Wolfman" film) and actually reflects quite a bit of light.



While I have one frame I could probably use straight from camera, this is a four frame exposure blend in Photomatix, to counter uneven lighting in the scene.



All frames, 60sec @ f/5.6
