The Lord's Patio

Category: Landscapes & Rural Life

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. See also:
