Italian Garden, Compton Acres

Number of views as of 6th January 2015 = 530.

Another shot from a mini ‘Bubble Meet’ in May 2010 at Compton Acres in Poole, Dorset, England.

This one features the Petrified Naked Skateboarding championships, though the competitors seem to have lost their wheels.

When it comes to photography, it’s well documented that the size of your equipment doesn’t matter, an opinion probably shared by the chap on the left! To be fair, there had been a sharp frost earlier in the week.

Laid out by T.W.Simpson in the 1920s, Compton Acres is claimed to be one of the finest privately owned gardens in Southern England.

Date: 8th May 2010.

Hello and thankyou for visiting my portfolio.

The name RedHillDigital comes from the area where I live (Redhill, in the town of Bournemouth, in the county of Dorset on the South Coast of England), plus my interest in Digital photography.

My real name is Howard and I’m always pleased to receive feedback on my work.

    This reminds me of Port Merion in Wales .
    Lovely place and shot Howard. x

  • I can see what you mean Irene. I believe Portmeirion was inspired by the mediterranean fishing village of Portofino in Italy.

    Nice work Howard. And just in the way of a little bit more information, I’m pretty sure that the Italian garden was one of the locations used by Stanley Kubrick in his film Barry Lyndon if only briefly.

  • Thanks Laurie, I don’t believe I’ve seen the film, so I can’t confirm or deny your statement, but Compton Acres isn’t listed here.

    Looks like a great place Howard ..

  • It’s a lovely spot Tom, even better when you can bask in the sunshine, but much busier then of course. Best regards, Howard.
