Mirror

For the Weekly Photo Challenge, I am showing an image of the Castle at Puckler Park, Bad Muskau, reflected in the lake. This photo was taken a decade and a half ago when the castle was in a run down state. We visited on a very gloomy day, which only adds to the forlorn look. As I understand, it has been much restored now.

  1. Another good one from the archives, Sue. I like the run-down look, and the gloom suits it accordingly.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. It’s a great shot though Sue. That pretty smooth reflection it lifts the feel of the image and my first thought is charm more than decay

  3. Thank you for posting this image: I love the links established – Now I’ve seen one of Łazienki’s companions in the Garden of Lights festival.

  4. I am a sucker for a good reflection picture! Nice one.

  5. I’m rather fond of forlorn looking places!! beautiful image Sue!

  6. Very nice shot, Sue. We have been there and yes, it has been very much restored. 🙂

  7. This is a lovely, melancholy shot.

  8. From this distance, it still looks great, Sue.

  9. Very nice, is this a scan of a photo?

  10. You may think I am crazy, but I prefer the forlorn look on a castle than a fully restored one. I mean it is a castle that belongs to another period. Forlorn gives it more credibility. In any case, I like the PoV you took and the reflection.

  11. Your archives are something else Sue! Oh and yes it would be lovely to see you when you’re down 🙂

  12. It looks like taken out of a fairy tale. Or a different time. Beautifully captured, Sue.

  13. That is a beautiful reflection Sue – great picture!

  14. So sad to see all these beautiful castles decay.

  15. Great shot, Sue. Love the reflection and I bet it was an interesting visit.

  16. Hi Sue, this looks like a fairy tale castle. Just beautiful, and perfect for the theme.
