Chateau de Saumur

By chant  
taken a couple of days ago. This is a view I know well, our local 'major' chateau in Saumur. It's a tremendous view across vineyards, down to the town below and la Loire flowing majestically past, on her way to the sea.

The annual Fete de Vendanges will be held here this coming weekend. harvesting of the grapes by the public. Then a procession following the Harvest Queen, down to the chateau grounds where a huge wine press awaits. After pressing the fruit, everyone's invited to take a cup and taste the clear, cool, refreshing juices. It's a must-see & do when in the area.

This looks as if it was produced in Vue software, because of the light and the dappled shade from the tree.

Good pic though.

Thanks for all the kind comments, much appreciated. As before, the image was processed/tonemapped using Photomatix and 'fiddled about a little bit with' in PS7.
