Photography in Regent’s Park

It’s a warm sunny day in April and the temperature hits 25°C.  Ron and I find it hot hot as a few days before the temperature was 14°C.  We love it as the sun shines and we feel like it is always warm and sunny. Who remembers the cold? Not us as we bask in the warm April sunshine making our way to Regent’s Park in Central London. Green has never looked so green, we are just lovin’ it!  We make our way through Regent’s Park and think of Summer approaching…

Slow Exposure Triton Fountain

We use a slow exposure to capture movement in the water

The Triton Fountain is made of bronze and consists of a group of 3 sculptures; Triton in the centre blowing a horn and 2 mermaids.  The sculptor, William McMillan who designed the fountain also designed one of the sculptures in Trafalgar Square.  Having photographed the Trafalgar Square fountains with photographers on our London Photography Tours I realise the similarities of the mermaids.  This is a stormy tale of a Sea God surrounded by nymphs.  The Triton Fountain is located at the end of the central walk of Queen Mary’s Gardens.  You will find it opposite the Jubilee Gates.

We made our way down Primrose Hill and crossed the river to enter Regent’s Park.  There are lots of interesting things to photograph, e.g., The Open Air Theatre, boating lake, rose garden, colourful flowers and bulbs, and amazing gardens and landscapes.  Regent’s Park is vast and we enjoyed the Royal landscaping some of which is cultivated and other parts wild with long grass.  A great experience to walk in the April sunshine photographing all that we could see.
