Bramshill House has been the location of the Police Staff College, Bramshill since 1960. Previously it had been the home of Lord Brocket, and of the exiled King Michael I of Romania. The house stands in 269 acres of land, and is a Jacobean mansion. Reference to Bramshill (Bromeselle) can be traced back to Saxon times. In 1605, Edward Zouche, 11th Baron Zouche of Harringworth, bought the property from Sir Stephen Thornhurst of Agnes Court, Kent, and demolished a large part of the building and began to build the present house. This was completed in 1612. In 1699 it passed to Sir John Cope. The famous Bramhill ghost is thought to be a member of Sir John Cope's family, and is associated with the Legend of the Mistletoe Bough.

Strathalbyn Church Rainbow
SandergroveSouth AustraliaThe forecast for this particular morning was severe weather with gusts up to 90km/h. Regardless, the shoot was very diverse as a result of the weather. It started off with periods of clear skies at night with a few star shots and light painting. I then went into self portrait mode as the skies blanketed over with cloud. They then blew away again for dawn with some awesome colours. And finally, the sun broke through for periods of golden light with surrounding rain giving some striking rainbows!
