Favorite Shots: Vicarious Pemberley

When my family heard I was going to be visiting Lyme Park, the site of Pemberley from the BBC’s version of “Pride and Prejudice,” they flipped out a little bit. And let’s be real, I flipped out a little bit too. After months of living in England, it just felt so right.

The house was fabulous, clearly, and I so enjoyed taking in the house from a number of different angles. The above shot makes me so happy. It is a favorite shot of favorite shots. The composition is a bit out of the ordinary for me, and I love the reflection on the pond.

This shot is of the front side of the house. To me, it looks really imposing. Broad and steep and forbidding.

Ever and always,

I remain your loving
