Versailles In The Rain.

Mar 20, 2020

Those of you lovely people who have been following me for a while will know that I live near Versailles. The chateau and it’s domaine is one of my favourite places to photograph. There is so much beauty to see both inside and outside.

Having shot a series of images in the gardens there last summer that went on to win the first prize in the Fotonostrum International Photography Awards, Architecture category, I decided to go back recently on a very rainy day. I enjoy photographing the same places through out the seasons and I like to challenge myself to produce interesting images, no matter the weather and light.

Here are some of the resulting images …..



However, with the current health crisis due to the COVID-19 virus, the chateau and the park are closed at the moment and for the next few weeks/months. 

I receive the newsletter, in which I discovered that there is a series of videos (often with English subtitles) on the chateau’s You Tube Channel.  

And here is one of my favourite ones …..
