I couldn't resist posting this image of Ham House, taken yesterday. It's a view captured by hundreds of visitors, but this one is remarkable for the lighting. It's high noon. The June sun is high behind the house above the white flag pole. This is the front which looks due North. A massive bank of thick battleship grey cloud has driven across the whole sky, blocking and filtering the strong sunlight to produce a remarkable lighting effect which the camera has managed to capture. Shortly after, the cloud moved away, the sun re-appeared, and the scene became ordinary.
The effect is quite powerful. (And.......looking at this I still can't believe it was built 400 years ago in 1610.)
