I agree -- these are fascinating and very inviting photos. The "water lily", or whatever it is, in #2 is amazing. I've never senn such an odd looking aquatic plant. I don't think there's anything like those plants here in North America.

What a great "teaser" - to make us look forward to seeing photos from your next visit!
Must agree that the water lilies make for an amazing & delicate series.

That is quite a greenhouse, I really like the 3rd shot, nicely framed

Default Thanks

Thanks Guys,

I was rather surprised seeing this old post resurfacing. (may 16 2010) and getting this much activity on it.

I must agree that it's a gorgeous place and after this post showing up again went for another visit last weekend.

This castle (dating back to the 12th century lies in the center of the park)

(ps: i'm busy playing around with Nik Hdr - so long the temp. licence holds out so the colors can be a bit over the top especially 1 & 3 )

I don't think that these look over-done at all, they look very nice on this monitor. A very interesting place!
