Weekend Reflections : le château vu de la pièce d'eau des Suisses

Château palace Versailles orangerie reflected
Stuart over in Amboise in the Loire Valley gave VDP this idea of doing things upside down. This is the palace and orangerie seen from the Swiss Lake! More Weekend Reflections are this way.

Stuart à Amboise dans la vallée de la Loire a donné à VDP l'idée de faire les choses à l'envers ! C'est le château et l'orangerie vus de la pièce d'eau des Suisses ! Tous les Reflets du Weekend sont par ici.

I remember seeing Stuart's take on that idea. Beautiful reflections, Ciel!

I did like the first one, good thinking !

These are terrific! What a great idea!! Hope you have a wonderful weekend, Ciel!

You sure made us think, Ciel.

Bob Crowe said...

That top one is disorienting to say the least, but quite beautiful. I don't think the technique would work as well in the Mississippi.

Randy said...

Love that first shot. Beautiful building too.

Michelle said...

Nice effect. It does seem that large parts of the world are upside down these days.

Stuart said...

Bien fait ! Sometimes one has to have a different perspective.

Die Reflexe im ersten Foto sind besonders schön und klar. Bist du Kopf gestanden? :)

A magnificent image! I was deceived by the first photo until I read your caption and saw the other...

Ah very clever, bit like mine yesterday, you have to think about it. Very good.

So beautiful Ciel! That first shot is just amazing.

Your first picture is quite dizzying!

I like your middle reflection photo, but then I'm such an old fogy.
