To "do it justice" you need a couple of visits really and some good pre-planning, plus comfortable shoes!

Everyone who purchased a Palace Park & Gardens ticket can upgrade them to a years unlimited visits pass for no additional cost which I think many will be doing.

No worries Phil....I think I posted at the exact same time you moved the others :thumright:

Anyway you need a solid half day to visit Blenheim really....it involves a good old walk round the lake,a latte near the pools/fountain,a cream tea,lunch,a tour round the house etc :thumleft:

Regards,Mark.

:whathesaid: Sorry Mark, no trace of your post in the split posts, I had a look too. Maybe the forum software can't cope if a thread is split at the precise moment someone posts up?

EDIT: Mark, just seen your post - can people slow down, I can't keep up :oops: :D

As people have probably noticed,from some of my photos over in the "Lounge",myself & Mandy have visited Blenheim on numerous occasions and it really is a beautiful place....they do some great food in the restaurant =D>

Have had 2 annual family passes thus far and have thoroughly enjoyed each & every visit 8)

Highly recommended especially when the weather is nice :thumleft:

One moment I was there on my own at 9:30 then suddenly there were 3 rows of cars and a crowd of people, a gazebo, a table, food everywhere, laughter, kids playing and my brain frying sorting out ticket requirements and monies. Then the tickets were issued and people went off to explore, finally sat down, had a great natter with many folks who previously were simply names on here, blinked and it was going home time, after an impromptu photo shoot with the last 8 cars, oooh! The last 8 of the event.

All I have to do now is get plotting for next years 8 day so I can top this one!!

A couple of shots from last week, where does the time go! :shock:

These are the only shots I've got of the cars as all the ones I got in the sun are on a memory card that has fried itself :evil: gutted!

Thank you Biguns, they are processed in photoshop using Nik Color Efex plug in software which gives tonal contrast control so they are not proper HDR... I like the results this software gives and use it all the time.
