Not just a summer palace

One of the great advantages of working at Hampton Court Palace is how lovely it looks, summer or winter, dawn or dusk.

On the other hand, one of the disadvantages is that you end up spending (wasting?) an AWFUL lot of your time taking pictures.

It just seems wrong to see such beautiful vistas and keep on walking without capturing the scene.
