WPC: Landscape Shots of the Ruins of Chateau Gaillard

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 Hubby to take the ‘establishing’ shot, which he has done rather nicely here.

    • 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.
