    My France collection

    ** My most interesting **

    The Château de Chambord in the Loire Valley is a impressive sight and the largest château in the region. Originally built as a hunting lodge the Chateau has only been lived in for a handful of years throughout its history. It is particularly famous for its double helix staircase in the centre of the keep (you can just see it at the top in the centre).

    Taken with a 10x stop ND (3.0) and GND filters, giving an exposure time of ~48 secs. Minor editing (levels, sharpening, etc) in Capture NX.
