I'm doing a reprise of some of the places we've visited and images we've taken - and may already have shared a while ago on 365.
This is Tina at Château de Chambord at Chambord, Loir-et-Cher, May 2006. Tina is looking into the sun. Bad! But this way I could get the chateau without other people just then. It is a wonderful place! Visit if you can, or haven't already.
"(It) is one of the most recognizable châteaux in the world because of its very distinctive French Renaissance architecture which blends traditional French medieval forms with classical Renaissance structures. The building, which was never completed, was constructed by King Francis I of France." - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ch%C3%A2teau_de_Chambord
