Montacute House in Montacute, Somerset is a National Trust property we visit fairly often – an Elizabethan Renaissance property created by Sir Edward Phelips. At this time of year the National Trust have been lighting the house up in bright colours on the outside & arranging “candlelight tours” inside. On a dark, foggy December evening it makes for a great trip for the family and a nice opportunity to break out the tripod, too!
With my daughter in tow as assistant, and trying her hand at long-exposures, we set about trying to capture some of the house. Unfortunately a 5 year-old’s stamina at a late hour in the evening isn’t that strong, so we only captured a couple of views. Nonetheless we had fun & managed some fun shots. My favourite has to be the garden fountain.
