Photographer's Note

An old boat house in a corner of the lake at Scotney Castle.
What is it about old buildings, large or small, that we find so attractive, especially when covered in moss, as is shown here? I am speaking for myself of course.

Scotney Castle is an English country house, that has a long history. It has formal gardens south east of Lamberhurst in the valley of the River Bewl in Kent.The gardens are a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), and a celebrated example of the Picturesque style.
The Picturesque - is an aesthetic category developed in the 18th century. It was associated with fashionable landscape gardening, however its cultural significance extended far beyond this.
The lake is surrounded by sloping, wooded gardens with fine collections of rhododendrons and azaleas in the spring, followed by many other plants that are full of colour in the summer and autumn.
In the workshop, I have posted a work of art that is to be found in another corner of the gardens.
Thanks for looking.
