Hidcote Manor Gardens
Hidcote Manor Gardens is probably one of the most  famous National Trust Properties, not only nationally but internationally as  well.   Its location at the very north end of the Cotswolds in Gloucestershire means that it is only a short drive from where I live.

Hidcote is a special place for me.   It is probably the first National Trust I ever visited as a child (and thus making it the NT  property I've visited the most number of times), and was the location for my first Digital SLR session with my late father's Canon, a session that resulted in my subsequent purchase of a Sony A200.   Had I chosen somewhere else, or picked a less sunny a  day to visit, it's possible that I may not have been as impressed with the results and stuck with my Minolta for a little while longer.   This would have  probably meant that I would not have photographed the 2008 Evesham Vale 10K run  to the extent I did, would not have been invited to do the 2009 event, and thus not come to the attention of the Evesham River Festival and "Wartime in the Vale".

The HTML5 conversion of this collection has seen the removal of all the photographs taken prior to February 2010, which means that - at least until I do a session with the A77 - the photographs in the revised collection have been taken with one camera, rather than the four in the previous version.
