Chateau Gaillard, in the province of Normandy, is a dream for landscape shots.
As I almost always take close-ups, I have to rely on Al to take the ‘establishing’ shot, which he has done rather nicely here.
The ruins, set high up on a hill, have a spectacular view of the town below.
However, I couldn’t help but take several panorama shots of the surrounding landscape, and all of them are establishing shots, like this one of Al taking a view of the town below…
This one is of the ruin itself.
And this one, of some picnickers enjoying the view, looks like something out of an Impressionist painting.

Must have been spectacular when not a ruin and looks great as a ruin. I love the panorama function.
Great shots, love the panoramas.
I love panoramas too, but often forget to take a few of each scene – I was glad I was reminded as just after I did this post I head off to see the tulip fields in full bloom just to the south…
I learned something new today! Thanks! Now Chateau Gaillard goes onto my #bucketlist!
At some point I’m going to a post about my favourite ruins and Chateau Gallaird will be at the top of the list. It’s great to take a picnic and pick up some cider at one of the little farms along the way.
