Que lentes

les fulles roges de les veus, que incertes

quan vénen a colgar-nos. Adormides,

les fulles dels meus besos van colgant

els recers del teu cos, i mentre oblides

les fulles altes de l’estiu, els dies

oberts i sense besos, ben al fons

el cos recorda: encara

tens la pell mig del sol, mig de la lluna"

Cambra de la tardor de Gabriel Ferrater

 

"Creu-me,

creu-me que mai

hi hagué més llum a les fosques

When I got to Chenonceaux castle, I had different ideas on pictures to be taken. Since this castle is all built on the river, I surely had in mind tons of reflection shots. But I halso had in mind to take a shot of one very long gallery that runs towards the river.

That said, when I got there, not very early in the morning, the gallery was full of people (August is not a great month for vacations, I know). Then, after shooting the crowded gallery just for the record, I decided to take some different shots.

I noticed this window, with this double light, one directly from the sun, the other reflected on the river, and immediately fell in love (photographically speaking!) with it.

 

Some HDR info: HDR was mandatory to collect all the informations on the light and behind the window (the reflected light was absent in two of three shots I took!). As you might notice, I tried to give my HDR a "natural" look, not over-pushing the shadows.

 

I don't know if you read and/or appreciate my stories and technical comments on my images...I will post them every time I have some time to write them down...unless everybody tells me I'm wasting my time :o)

 

Critics, comments, favs, are welcome as usual!

Das Schloss Chenonceau ist ein Wasserschloss im französischen Ort Chenonceaux im Département Indre-et-Loire der Region Centre. Sein Hauptgebäude steht – von Wasser umgeben – am nördlichen Ufer des Cher, während die später errichtete Galerie den Fluss überbrückt. Im Herzen der Touraine gelegen, etwa zwölf Kilometer südlich der Loire bei Amboise, gehört Chenonceau zu den Schlössern der Loire.

 

Alljährlich besuchen rund 800.000 Touristen die Anlage und machen damit Chenonceau nach Versailles zum meistbesuchten Schloss Frankreichs. Das „eleganteste, feinste und originellste der Loire-Schlösser“ wird auch das Schloss der Damen (französisch Château des Dames) genannt, denn es waren fast immer Frauen, die seine Geschichte und sein Schicksal bestimmten.

 

Seine Wurzeln liegen in einem befestigten Anwesen mit dazugehöriger Wassermühle, das über die Familie Bohier in der ersten Hälfte des 16. Jahrhunderts in den Besitz der französischen Krone kam. Diane de Poitiers prägte das Aussehen des Schlosses durch Erweiterungen ebenso, wie es ihre Nachfolgerin Katharina von Medici tat, der die Anlage ihre berühmte Galerie zu verdanken hat.

 

Nachdem die Gebäude seit Ende des 17. Jahrhunderts verlassen und nicht mehr bewohnt waren, wurde das Schloss 1733 von dem reichen Steuerpächter Claude Dupin gekauft. Seine Frau Louise erfüllte es danach wieder mit Leben. Die Tochter des reichen Bankiers Samuel Bernard und Enkelin eines Mitglieds der Comédie-Française unterhielt einen Salon auf Chenonceau und machte es so zum Treffpunkt von bekannten Literaten und geistig interessierten Mitgliedern der gesellschaftlichen Oberschicht. Die Nachfahren der Dupins veräußerten Chenonceau 1864 an den wohlhabenden Chemiker Théophile-Jules Pelouze, dessen Frau Marguerite das gesamte Familienvermögen einsetzte, um die Schlossgebäude zu restaurieren. Ihre Anstrengungen werden seit 1951 durch die neuen Inhaber, die Familie des Schokoladenfabrikanten Menier, fortgesetzt.

 

Das Schloss besteht aus einem nahezu quadratischen Wohngebäude, dem sich südlich eine Galerie anschließt. Die beiden Gebäude stehen im Wasser des Cher. Nördlich davon steht der ehemalige Bergfried der Vorgängeranlage – Tour des Marques genannt – auf einer von Wassergräben umgebenen Insel, die im Osten und Westen von zwei Renaissance-Gärten flankiert wird. Außerdem gehören ein ehemaliges landwirtschaftliches Gut, eine Orangerie sowie ein Kanzleigebäude − die Chancellerie – und ein ehemaliger Wirtschaftstrakt zur Schlossanlage. Sie liegen alle nördlich des Hauptgebäudes. Dieses wurde bereits 1840 mitsamt der Galerie unter Denkmalschutz gestellt. Die Gärten und der Park folgten im November 1962.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

En mi opinión Chenonceau es el Château más bonito y perfecto de los más de 100 (sólo he visto 6 o 7 ) que existen en el Loira , tanto en el interior como en el exterior . La construcción de parte del mismo sobre un puente que cruza de lado a lado el río es espectacular, sus jardines impresionantes . Se nota la mano femenina de cuatro reinas . Lo que podríamos llamar puente es en efecto una galería que he colgado en el primer comentario .

Chatueau de Chenonceau in Chenonceaux, France

The Château de Chenonceau (French: [ʃa.to də ʃə.nɔ̃.so]) is a manor house near the small village of Chenonceaux, in the Indre-et-Loire département of the Loire Valley in France. It was built on the site of an old mill on the River Cher, sometime before its first mention in writing in the 11th century. The current manor was designed by the French Renaissance architect Philibert Delorme.

 

The original manor was torched in 1412 to punish owner Jean Marques for an act of sedition. He rebuilt a castle and fortified mill on the site in the 1430s. Subsequently, his indebted heir Pierre Marques sold the castle to Thomas Bohier, Chamberlain for King Charles VIII of France in 1513. Bohier destroyed the castle, though its 15th-century keep was left standing, and built an entirely new residence between 1515 and 1521. The work was sometimes overseen by his wife Katherine Briçonnet,[1] who delighted in hosting French nobility, including King Francis I on two occasions.

 

In 1535 the château was seized from Bohier's son by King Francis I of France for unpaid debts to the Crown; after Francis' death in 1547, Henry II offered the château as a gift to his mistress, Diane de Poitiers, who became fervently attached to the château along the river.[2] In 1555 she commissioned Philibert de l'Orme built the arched bridge joining the château to its opposite bank.[3] Diane then oversaw the planting of extensive flower and vegetable gardens along with a variety of fruit trees. Set along the banks of the river, but buttressed from flooding by stone terraces, the exquisite gardens were laid out in four triangles.

 

Diane de Poitiers was the unquestioned mistress of the castle, but ownership remained with the crown until 1555, when years of delicate legal maneuvers finally yielded possession to her. However, after King Henry II died in 1559, his strong-willed widow and regent Catherine de' Medici forced Diane to exchange it for the Château Chaumont.[4] Queen Catherine then made Chenonceau her own favorite residence, adding a new series of gardens.

 

As Regent of France, Catherine would spend a fortune on the château and on spectacular nighttime parties. In 1560, the first ever fireworks display seen in France took place during the celebrations marking the ascension to the throne of Catherine's son Francis II. The grand gallery, which extended along the existing bridge to cross the entire river, was dedicated in 1577.

On Catherine's death in 1589 the château went to her daughter-in-law, Louise de Lorraine-Vaudémont, wife of King Henry III. At Chenonceau Louise was told of her husband's assassination in 1589 and she fell into a state of depression, spending the remainder of her days wandering aimlessly along the château's vast corridors dressed in mourning clothes amidst somber black tapestries stitched with skulls and crossbones.

 

After that, it was owned by Louise's heir César of Vendôme and his wife, Françoise of Lorraine, Duchess of Vendôme, and passed quietly down the Valois line of inheritance, alternately inhabited and abandoned for more than a hundred years.

 

Château de Chenonceau was bought by the Duke of Bourbon in 1720. Little by little, he sold off all of the castle's contents. Many of the fine statues ended up at Versailles. The estate itself was finally sold for 130,000 livres in 1733 to a wealthy squire named Claude Dupin.[2]

 

Claude's wife (daughter of financier Samuel Bernard and grandmother of George Sand), Madame Louise Dupin, brought life back to the castle by entertaining the leaders of The Enlightenment: Voltaire, Montesquieu, Buffon, Bernard le Bovier de Fontenelle, Pierre de Marivaux, and Jean-Jacques Rousseau. She saved the château from destruction during the French Revolution, preserving it from being destroyed by the Revolutionary Guard because it was essential to travel and commerce, being the only bridge across the river for many miles. She is said to be the one who changed the spelling of the Château (from Chenonceaux to Chenonceau) to please the villagers during the French Revolution. She dropped the "x" at the end of the Château's name to differentiate what was a symbol of royalty from the Republic. Although no official sources have been found to support this legend, the Château has been since referred to and accepted as Chenonceau.

 

In 1864, Daniel Wilson, a Scotsman who had made a fortune installing gaslights throughout Paris, bought the château for his daughter. In the tradition of Catherine de' Medici, she would spend a fortune on elaborate parties to such an extent that her finances were depleted and the château was seized and sold to José-Emilio Terry, a Cuban millionaire, in 1891. Terry sold it in 1896 to a family member, Francisco Terry, and in 1913, the Menier family, famous for their chocolates, bought the château and still own it to this day.

 

During World War I the gallery was used as a hospital ward; during the Second War it was a means of escaping from the Nazi occupied zone on one side of the River Cher to the "free" zone on the opposite bank.

 

In 1951, the Menier family entrusted the château's restoration to Bernard Voisin, who brought the dilapidated structure and the gardens (ravaged in the Cher River flood in 1940) back to a reflection of its former glory.

 

An architectural mixture of late Gothic and early Renaissance, Château de Chenonceau and its gardens are open to the public. Other than the Royal Palace of Versailles, Chenonceau is the most visited château in France.

 

The château is classified as a Monument historique since 1840 by the French Ministry of Culture.[3] Today, Chenonceau is a major tourist attraction and in 2007 received around 800,000 visitors.[5] source wikipédia
