The mansion...

This is Attingham Park near Shrewsbury.

I'm not a fan of 18th century Palladian-style mansions but at least this one has a comedic twist. The 2nd Lord Berwick who owned it was so desperate to be at the pinnacle of high society he lavished a fortune on it - money he didn't have! He got into such enormous debt running the place that he was declared bankrupt, had to sell off much of the house contents in auctions and fled to Italy where he lived for the rest of his life hiding from his creditors.

But I do quite like the sky...

Nice razor sharp-image details and moody, dramatic sky!

An ideal photo to employ black and white, David. The sky is indeed very dramatic. Nicely done!
