Glass cathedral

Syon Park is the London home of the Duke of Northumberland. And such a grand estate needs a fitting greenhouse. Well, this is called the Grand Conservatory and is an impressively elegant glasshouse, with a smattering of tropical plants and a magical setting for a wedding reception.

I was in my element with this building, with its layers of glass, architectural lines and symmetry – all topped off with a cathedral-like dome. There were few other visitors, so I could even lie flat on the ground to capture its height. A glasshouse fit for the aristocracy, a photographer’s delight.

  1. Great photos of a beautiful building! I wonder which photos were taken with you lying on the ground and, more than that, are there any photos of you lying on the ground taking pictures? ;)


Please leave your comment below. I look forward to hearing from you
