Waddesdon Manor Xmas Lights

As I'm local + an NT member I visit for these every year. Went yesterday and visited the House, 5 for NT members/24.80 non-NT, but we had enough complementary tickets for ourselves and friends.

The Grounds where the light displays are situated are free for NT members and 10.80 for non-NT. I have 2 free tickets left for Grounds only. I would need to present them personally, but I'm literally only a few minutes and would then leave you to get on with your visit.

If you like period interiors stuffed full of old furniture, huge paintings, over decorated Xmas trees, etc., then visit the house. I took about a dozen images (needs 12mm) but only liked this one:

We returned around 16:00 for the lighting displays, not ideal conditions being misty, so I took some 'test' shots using 14-150mm and will return to re-do, including taking a tripod and using live composite for some of them.

Will post those shots in a following post …

P.S. If you visit the House, (camera) rucksacks are only allowed if worn on your front, straightjacket fashion, and I understand shoulder bags also need to be carried in a similar manner. Bags can be left at Visitor Information near The House entrance, but to avoid any inconvenience, I took my Pen F + 14-42 pancake lens in my jacket pocket.
