Photography: Walking the Felbrigg Hall Victory V

It’s day four of Blog Every Day in November (#BEDN) and I’ve chosen to use one of the daily prompts for today’s post. The prompt for today is Photography. My photography skills leave a lot to be desired, especially photos taken indoors – I really struggle to get good light, and it doesn’t help that every room in our house faces North so we lack good natural light – but I do enjoy taking photos, and I’m continually trying to improve. I don’t own a proper camera (I hope to soon, maybe not a DSLR though as I doubt I will ever be able to use it to its full potential), and all my photos are taken on my phone. Up until two weeks ago I used a Samsung Galaxy S4 but now I have an S6, and the camera on the S6 is so much better – I have really noticed a difference in the quality of shots I’ve taken this last couple of weeks. 

This past weekend we had family come to visit and we decided to go for a walk at Felbrigg Hall. Felbrigg has been our favourite place to visit since we became National Trust members a few months ago – it’s ideal for us as it’s only 15 minutes away. This time we decided to follow the shortest walk at Felbrigg, the Victory V walk. The Victory V is so-called because it is made up of two tree-lined avenues which, when seen from the sky, look like a V. The V was designed as a monument to the memory of the brother of the last squire of Felbrigg Hall, who  died in WWII. 

It was such a beautiful, crisp autumn day – pretty perfect in every way. Here are a few photos from our walk.

      Thanks Lizzie – it is lovely there, although we really need to start visiting other NT properties as we always seem to just gravitate towards Felbrigg. Xxx

    I find photography quite difficult at times too, my solution is to take as many photos as possible and hope one is good enough! I’m not sure I have the eye for it and have considered photography classes, maybe in the future when the boys aren’t keeping me awake at night! Your photos are beautiful, I especially love the light in the first photo. Looks like a great place to spend some time.
    Thanks so much for linking up to #Whatevertheweather ūüôā x

      Thank you Jenny! Photography classes are something I have considered too – but like you I think I would need to wait until the kiddies decide that sleeping through the night is a good idea! xxx

    Wow I love your photos. They’re so beautiful, you’ve captured the light and the colour of the forest so well. The sunlight is so beautiful. I love toying around with the settings of the camera and seeing what works best. You’ve got such a beautiful backdrop to experiment with, with this forest. Thank you so, so much for linking up to #whatevertheweather xx
