CCC Trip to Stowe Gardens (3)

Whilst walking around Stowe Gardens I found the Chinese House. If it had been a few weeks later than this 'exhibit' would have been wrapped up for the winter to protect it.

Such a lot of interesting detail, lovely paintings, weathered woodwork - great textures.

The first shot shows the Chinese House in its entirety, The rest where taken with my Canon 100mm L series Macro lens.
