Le château: statue and chapel

Maybe I'm guessing wrong, but some of you might have been wondering if the palace is still there as I only rarely seem to go near it. Well... yes, of course it is still there and here's a little appetizer, because we will most certainly stop near or inside it from time to time... This here is one of the outer courtyard palace statues, standing in front of the royal chapel.
-----------------------
Je vous rassure, le château est toujours là, même si je ne m'en approche finalement pas souvent. De temps en temps et au gré des saisons, nous irons nous y promener... En attendant, voici l'une des statues de l'avant-cour du château avec en arrière-plan la chapelle royale.

This will be enjoyable to see without standing in those long queues.

J'étais un peu inquiet je pensais que le château prenait ses quartiers d'hiver

This is such a lovely shot. I love the subtle colors and shadows of the sculpture and the building in the background. Very rich and interesting photo to gaze at!

I love the Palace! We were there in June and it was sooooo cold. But they had just reopened the Hall of Mirrors! We didn't get inside the chapel, though.

Very nice photo, Cielde. And thanks for looking at our blogs today and for all the nice comments!

Oh that's a stunning photo! I went to the palace once, but it was over 20 years ago - I don't think I really appreciated it at the time, i'd love to go back and see it again.
