The Lord's Patio by KeldBach The Lord's Patio by KeldBach
While looking for a suitable place to shoot the sunset last evening, I followed a few shortcuts through the countryside and suddenly found myself in the backyard of a large estate. I took a few quick shots and hastily retreated when the dogs started barking in the background. Back home, I found out the place was called Valdbygaard (est. 1774) and belonged to Lord August Bech who's family have been living there for five generations. Unfortunately I had to shoot towards the light, thus burning out the sky, but I thought the low shooting angle made for an interesting composition. Also see:
