The last few weeks were some of the most fun I have had in a long time. I went with the family over to Europe, mostly France, and had a great vacation. We visited chateaux in the Loire Valley, toured Paris like a ferret on a double espresso, and even made time to soak up a little history in Normandy. It was awesome, all the way around. If you follow my FB page, you would have seen all the iPhone pics I was sharing from the road.
Now we are back, and I am beginning to sort through the 7000+ pictures that I took. Yes, I said 7000+. I didn’t realize I shot so much, but hey no complaints here!
When we were in the Loire Valley, we stayed in a great little town/village known as Amboise. It’s east of the town of Tours (in case that rings a bell) and is a great base for exploring that part of the Loire Valley...and explore we did!
We saw 5 of the famous chateaux (Chambord, Chenonceau, Cheverny, Chaumont-sur-Loire and Amboise) and honestly I just loved the area. I love castles anyways, and these fabulously constructed chateaux are basically like castles to me. I was in heaven...and my Nikon had a good time too.
I grabbed this shot in Amboise one evening during blue hour. I am a sucker for the combination of architecture, lights, reflections, blue hour and interesting street scenes...so this was like a combo pack! I got it all in one shot!
