Somerset - June 2019 / by Mark Greenfield

So back in June of this year I managed to get a short break away to Somerset for a few nights to take in Longleat, Wells and Burnham on Sea and the lighthouse situated there and I’ve now finally got around to editing and publishing the photos from that trip with the last one finalised yesterday :)

So to start off I thought we’d go with Wells Cathedral with its magnificent architecture, friendly and helpful staff and the added bonus they really are not bothered about photographers in there and theres some good opportunities to get the fish-eye lens out :)

Burnham on Sea Lighthouse

Ideally I would have loved to have taken this with a really high tide and a colourful sun set in the background but the time I was there neither were going to happen… but I do like this moody mono shot so got to be thankful for the cloudy day :)

And for a bit of change there a few shots of some animals below………..well had to do something whilst going around Longleat. I did use the bus to go round on as I didn’t fancy the monkey enclosure in my car…. hope you enjoy the shots below as its not my normal subject matter when it comes to photography and if you make it to the end you’ve done as well as the last furry creature :)
