Photo Waddle: Syon Park

I was desperate to squeeze the lovely trigger button on my X-T1 before the weekend arrived, but the days kept raining away. Finally, on Friday the sun made an appearance and I packed my tripod, filters and camera and went to work. I wanted to do some long exposure shots of Syon House, the London home of the 12th Duke of Northumberland. The sky remained stubbornly blue until lunch time when perfect, fluffy clouds appeared. The timing could not have been better so I donned my backpack and hurried down to Syon Park.

Long exposure shots quickly eat up a lunch hour, so I only had time for the entrance to the park and Syon House. I will go back another time to do more exploring.

All pictures taken with Fuji X-T1 + XF16-55mmF2.8 and various Lee Filters.

The grand entrance to Syon Park. Sadly, I have never seen it open.

Love this tiny little brick wall.

Finally the right clouds appeared.
