Waddesdon Manor Lights
A coolish day at Waddesdon today where I was meeting and greeting visitors off the buses at North Fountain. I had on the thick padded jacket and thermals plus gloves and hat - so a bit like Michelin Man (or woman). By the end of my 4 hour shift though I was not hot - nose and fingers very cold. We don't really get a break at all even though my 'partner' nipped into our shed and put the kettle on for a hot cup of tea.
The property is very busy with visitors to the Christmas Market, now it its final week - the House is also at capacity with all tickets sold out. I met some friends later for their annual trip here ending up with a cup of mulled wine - very welcome.
I stayed on to see the Lights in the dark and this year they really are spectacular. A great improvement on the past few years. Beautiful designs and colours. I had great fun playing with the long exposure facilities on my Olympus. I will try and get back for another exploration before everything closes in early January. Extra of a light tunnel near the Stables.
British politics still in a complete mess with no light at the end of this particular tunnel as yet.
