Welcome to this ‘June’ article, the sixth in a series of posts which aim to review, through photographs, twelve months of activity in and around the diverse landscape of Compton Verney. It’s a historic landscape that has seen much change, from the shaping of the areas as new plants establish to the visual delight gained from one of a number of artistic interactions.
There are huge changes in the atmosphere from the busiest of open days to quiet days when just bird song can be heard. Either way, visually the landscape changes minute by minute and it’s wonderful to be there to experience it – and on occasion capture an image or two!
Links to other months will be added at the bottom of the page, but for now, I hope you enjoy ‘June – The landscape at Compton Verney’ :
Having popped around to check that all was tidy in the courtyard, I happily stumbled upon preparations by a florist for a wedding – I couldn’t resist this quick photo of these very English looking table arrangements – perfect for a summer wedding at Compton Verney! © Compton Verney / Gary Webb 2014
Time is fast approaching for our Intermediate Digital SLR Photography Workshop – next Wednesday 11 June, led by Stratford-on-Avon based professional photographer Sally Crane. It’s an opportunity to move your photography to a new level, press that new DSLR into use, or simply refresh your love for landscape and garden photography.
Just a quick post to mention an enjoyable digital SLR photography workshop at Compton Verney last Wednesday which passed effortlessly, led by professional photographer Sally Crane.

Landscape & Garden Photography
Do you have a Digital SLR camera and enjoy landscape, gardens and architecture? If so, do spare a minute as I bring you news of a creative venture at Compton Verney.
We have connected with respected Stratford-Upon-Avon based photographer Sally Crane who will lead a workshop titled ‘Beginners’ Digital SLR Photography’. The workshop will involve explanation and practical demonstration, where Sally will guide you through the basics of light, aperture, shutter speed, ISO and composition.
Skills can be put into practice with informal walks into the grounds, where you’ll be able to take inspiration from the beautiful landscape, gardens and architecture of Compton Verney. All participants will need to provide is a digital SLR camera, batteries charged and ready to go!
