This is a very interesting picture with lots of symbolism, she seems to be offering treasures and food, I wonder why. I assume the silver coins and gold bars at her foot represent wealth. This is another example of the uniqueness of Quebec customs. I did not see giants anywhere in North America. TFS.

Congratulations for another nicely composed picture with ruins. It is a shame that a mansion like this had to be abandoned, but it is a credit to those who built it nearly 200 years ago that it is still standing after a fire. I can see from WS photos, that even the inside walls were made with stones.
There seems to be an error on the information panel about the date when the pictures were taken.
All the bests,

Very interesting lovely scene, 'only in France' I would say. It has all the elements of a nice picture, lots of flowers, vivid colours, reflections, and unusual architecture. I particularly like those patios over the water.

What a beautiful scene. I don't know what to admire most, the people who built this place, the engineers who made it possible to make such a picture with a camera or the photographer who captured it. Amazing.

I love steam locomotives, this is the most unusual one I have seen. I wonder why they made such a big fat smokestack for it. A good capture with both the steam and the smoke showing very well
