Hi,

the weather isn't a good as I would like it but I've been searching out what hidden treasures exist in my neighborhood. This is one I plan to come back to when the sun is back.

The Notelaer is a pavilion on the Scheldt River. It was built by the Duke of Ursel from 1791 till 1794 as a base for hunting and summer leisure. (just before the French revolution). In 1957 the lower floors have been flooded, but lot of the interior is still original. and more than worth the visit.

All taken with a k10d and sigma10-20

The main salon, (called the Italien Salon)


The ceiling (camera lying on the ground, + sigma 500 super)


A view down from the skylight in the ceiling. (it's not a real skylight because no light comes in, only I don't really know what it's named)


a view from the roof.

That's the kind of hunting lodge I'd like to have! And a river just beside would be nice too. Imagine, at the neighbours barbecue party: "Well I've hade some trouble too, ya know. The lower floors in my hunting castle were flooded, my servants are all busy tidying up the mess."

Thanks for posting, Ronny. A nice reason to visit Belgium, please come with more of this kind.

Kjell

Beautiful, Ronnie. My kind of hunting lodge and I don't hunt!

You did give me an idea of how I should have photographed the ceiling at the Christian Science Church building in Boston. Never occurred to me to set the camera on the floor and use the remote.

Amazing craftsmanship on both the floor and ceiling. When I read the subject line, I expected pictures of a log cabin deep in the woods. What a surprise!

Great shots of a pretty interesting place! Makes you wonder how many buildings like that are around that only a few folks know about.

There wasn't anybody in the building, to bad weather I guess.

No just kidding, I had the camera lying on the ground.
