View towards top of Barn Hill, Stamford, Lincs. UK photographed at 11.22hrs, Sunday 18 Nov. The trees are in the grounds of Barn Hill House which is the subject of the following post's image. The perspective was achieved using the Leica PC Super Angulon R 28/2.8 28mm lens’ 'diagonal shift’ facility … coupled to Leica SL 601; no post processing perspective correction required. 

Next trip may try a 24mm shift lens on the SL 601 which should enable fuller coverage of roof/chimney details. Barn Hill, Stamford residences were originally occupied by affluent 17th C. Stamford merchants.

 

Best wishes

Following on from above Barn Hill post, this is the 'top of the hill', Barn Hill House North Front, Barn Hill, Stamford, Lincs., UK,  photographed 14.53hrs. Sunday 18 November. The house dates from the 16th C. when Barn Hill was the site of the original sheep market … prior to the market’s relocation in 1781 to the current Sheep Market site.  Barn Hill House was remodelled several times over c. 200 years; the North Front was added by Bryan Browning in 1843. The gates were closed in the morning when I first explored Barn Hill - but were open during the afternoon.

Photographed with a Leica SL 601 coupled to a Leica PC Super Angulon R 28/2.8 28mm lens at f11. 

Best wishes

This is a very nice series of an interesting group of buildings.  I greatly appreciate your attention to present these images without converging vertical distortion, nice lens.

Also refreshing to get information about the architecture, usually missing from most posts.

Great series.

I was stationed at nearby RAF North Luffenham in the mid-nineties (now St George's Barracks, and in the hands of the British Army) and used to visit Stamford regularly to shop and dine.  These bring back a few memories!

Thank you for your comments … more trips planned on fairly regular basis as I'm now leading a small group of Stamford photography enthusiasts and lending them my shift lenses and adapters when required. And trying not to use tripods because Stamford pavements are so narrow. It's possible to use shift lenses without using a tripod. 

Best wishes

Lovely series, Dunk. It looks like Stamford would be worth a visit when I can make a trip across the Irish Sea again. Hope to see you in Buxton next year.
