While working with our partner in France we spent one afternoon visiting the incredible palace at Fontainebleau. I’m not sure I recall all of the history associated with the place but it was one of many royal residences scattered throughout France. Actually, I seem to recall that this was a ‘hunting lodge’. If so, it’s the nicest place I’ve ever seen to hang a set of deer antlers!
This image was taken in the back of the palace in a passageway leading between two sets of buildings in the complex. I was drawn to the clean, linear lines of the shrubs, path, and building facade. Those manmade lines juxtaposed against the abstract form of the sunlit tree really caught my eye. I hope you enjoy the composition as well. Enjoy.
