Ham House at peace in its setting

Here Ham House looks ready for a sleep after a busy day entertaining visitors. Those visitors normally spoil this view, in my opinion, so I was pleased to take this picture through the front gates after the house had closed for the day.

The complexity of the house is nicely balanced by the simplicity of the approach to it with the stone path flowing around the lawn and both sides flanked by a lightly decorated wall and geometric hedges. The gravel paths that lead away on both sides hint at the life behind the walls.
