Withdrawal symptoms

For those of you suffering from Downton Abbey withdrawal symptoms, today’s picture should cheer you up.  It was taken a couple of years ago when I visited Highclere Castle, the location for much of the series’ filming.  It’s a stately home with a fascinating history in its own right, quite apart from any association with the TV drama.

I was trying to find different views of the house, apart from the classic approach from the front.  The fact that the hill cuts through the house appealed to me – it makes the place look familiar and yet somehow different to what we expect, and begs the question of what is just beyond the rise.  In essence, we have to use our imagination to complete the image.  And the gorgeous blue sky and puffs of soft white cloud help frame the picture too.
