Sandringham

Didn't enter the house, but had access to the grounds and museum, and typically ended up rushing around as i insisted we left it late to avoid the crowds. Lovely hot day though. The light in the (rather disappointing) museum was a pain, every spare and dim lightbulb of all types in the whole of North Norfolk seemed to be wired in all over the place.

I've always been fascinated with wooden cars, as a kid there was a gent with an odd looking wooden hatchback on my street. I would stare at it as a wee nipper and try to make sense of it .




1/20 f9 iso5000 with the Oly 12/2.

Re: Sandringham

A small display showing all the unwanted () gifts received by the Queen. A painted face mask from Sri Lanka, a peace pipe from Chief Kitkou of British Colombia, a pair of Bride Caskets (for dowries perhaps??) from Eastern Arabia, and a Ghanian ebony and ivory tribal drummer. What caught my eye was that lovely wood and string eel trap, a gift from the President of Kiribati, maybe he was told jellied eels are an aristocratic delicacy in England.

Re: Sandringham

And finally the sunset from Hunstanton cliff later that day, with the Nokton still attached. As we sat and watched it set you can see the sun tried to hide behind that street lamp, crafty sun nearly had us fooled.

Re: Sandringham

As the yanks would say, the Daimler is a "Doozie".
An interesting set, Pete.

Re: Sandringham

Good series of shots Pete, that sunset one 's a belter.

No problem with photography on the premises then?

Re: Sandringham

The sunset is fantastic and the pictures of Sandringham facinating - must go there one day.

Re: Sandringham

I like a bit of wood on a car but that seemed excessive!

The avenue of trees is great and so is that sunset with the sun caught behind the lamp. Great imagination to spot that one.

No problem at all John, at the entrance to the grounds were signs stating that cameras/photography were welcome and again at the entrance to the museum. Not sure about the house itself, we just payed the ticket for grounds and museum.

The only problem with visiting Sandringham is that they close the whole lot when the Queen is present. However, we were told this was just a few days here and there throughout the year.
