Ashes to ashes...

By zarquon  
This vacation snapshot is actually an early evening view of a crumbling pile in rural France. It must have been a sight to see when fully occupied. Presumably the denizens were carried off to Mme. Guilllotine during the time of the French Revolution. I was attracted to the sheer size of the building and I had to stand at about 400 metres distant to capture the full extent of the property.

I hand-held the camera and the image was captured at 1/25th of a second at ISO 1000 and f/5.0 at a focal length of 145mm. The lens does not have any image stabilisation capability. The image was created at 18:57 during the month of October.
