Hello friendNick, this is quite an impressive cluster of structures..sorta futuristic to me. I've not seen "green houses" quite like these. They realy catch the eye, and I am enjoying lookling at all of these in your new postings. I especially love your fall colors in those beautiful trees here in these new pics. You are a busy man with such great photoes to show to us all. And I for one do enjoy the work you come up with, you are a true photographer. I, as you, am soon in the bed here too, been a long, tiring day for my household, lot going on, but did not want to pass these up without touching base with you.

Wish you a restful night Nick From USA, your friend/Sarah

Sarah O ~ A very good and somewhat early morning to you Queen of the Cakes here is a link to tell you more about these greenhouses

The British was caught up in the exploration of the World and bringing back rare and exotic plants from all corners of the Empire and all the biggest and poshest of houses had their grand green houses and orangeries to show off their finds.

Thank you for your very generous compliments ~ I certainly very much enjoy my photography and it is a great and necessary pleasure to share it ~ thus it is great news to read that you enjoy it too.

Of course that is the great pleasure of Pano that we can share each other's work and communicate to like minded people.

All the very best to you dearest Sarah and see you again soon :)

There is a famous shot of Pink Floyd, early in their career (around 1968 I think) taken here with a fish eye lens. Interesting to see what it really looks like. Great shot, thanks.

I forgot about that one. I was actually thinking of the shot in Nick Mason's book on the band, likely from the same shoot. More of the building is visible and the band are positioned differently, but it uses the same fish eye effect.
