...you can tell me by the way I walk
Montacute House, near Yeovil
Fascinating to see them all gathered together like that - they form a kinda sculpture. I'm assuming it is not a sly way of getting Visitors to help maintain the grounds ?!

Love the POV here, perfect grass and an amazing hedge too

Original and bold, I like that. How many others would have gone for this shot?

@Curly: Me taking this shot, rather than shots of the lovely house on its own, just re-confirmed in Mrs E's head that I am wired up wrong!!
Excellent shot Chris. I could do with one of those manual mowers.

When push comes to shove that's nicely framed Chris. Isn't that hedgerow wonderful

@grouser: In two of the mansions we visited, this "Organic form" of hedge trimming seemed to be the "In thing", I don't know if it's an original concept or something done later on

The old and the new, here the new is needed to keep the grounds ship shape:)

I think at Montacute it may have got out of hand during the war and they cut it back reflecting the growth pattern. However there is certainly a tradition of abstract hedging and topiary up here. There is a fantastic hedge round a private house in the village of Brampton Bryan and also some amazing ones at Powis Castle. They have famous topiarised trees at the castle too that I'm sure are called Twmpas, though having googled it I came up with nothing :)

Brilliant shot!! I love the way you decided not to move away the machines before taking the shot!!!

The new ... and the old ... fabulous.
I love the hedge trimming; I've have never seen anything like that before!

A fine picture of this beautiful building's setting with the yard equipment as a feature. Well done.

A novel way to shoot this stately pile, nice one Chris.

Interesting that they are all hand mowers, nice angle on this.
23 Sep 2013 5:05pm
Were you slithering when you took this shot? It is a fascinating viewpoint, which I quite like.

Great angle of the dangle man, and again the Oly is just awesome!
23 Sep 2013 5:56pm
superb compo, angle and perspective, and impressive details, particularly the hedge that has been commented about already ...
