One frame – Pitville park Cheltenham


The right place at the right time just as the sun from peered from behind the clouds


As a way of keeping a more regular blogging routine, I have decided to take a single frame from one of my photo shoots and give a little back story to the image.

I spent a few days away near Cheltenham last week, a town I have only ever passed through until now but was given a quick fire guided tour on the Sunday afternoon.

This particular location is Pitville park, first opened in 1825 and is the largest ornamental lake in Cheltenham.

I had wandered around the lake, looking for a suitable composition, as I was toing and froing , the sun peered from behind its cumulus mask to bathe the boathouse in its late afternoon light.

With the trees above me acting as a natural frame, this was my first shot of the day and easily one of my favourites from the four day excursion.
