Montacute House was built in about 1598 by Sir Edward Phelips, whose family had lived in the Montacute area since at least 1460, first as yeomen farmers before rising in status. The site was bought from the Cluniac Montacute Priory by Thomas Phelips and passed to his grandson, also called Thomas, who started planning the house, but died before it was built and left the completion.
I know composition is not the strongest here (ok, is basically awful), but I really like the juxtaposition of dried grasses, mountains covered in snow and river carrying glacial silt. The colours of Torres del Paine are always awesome, even shot in the middle of the day.
