Chatsworth House in Derbyshire

Today we paid a visit to Chatsworth House in Derbyshire and I took this picture of the house using my Pentax K5 and Tamron 10-24mm Super Wide Angle lens.

We were lucky because it was a beautiful spring day with hardly a cloud in the sky and the spring daffodils were still in bloom. Unfortunately, there are some improvement works taking place at Chatsworth at the moment, so the back part of the house is covered in scaffolding and plastic sheeting. Because the was taken with such a wide angle lens however, this is not easy to see in the final picture.

  • Tamron 10-24mm wide angle lens
  • 10mm

I’m a software developer by profession but I’ve been taking pictures since I was about 8 years old. In that time I’ve owned cameras of all types and sizes from 120 roll film thro’ 35mm to my current Pentax K-5, Ricoh GXR + P10/S10/A12 28mm/A12 50mm, Canon S95 and recently acquired Sony NEX 6.

    Love Chatsworth. I’ve been twice and did the maze each time. Planning a return trip in 2018.
    Lovely photo.
