Brundlund Castle is very nicely situated on an islet close to the Aabenraa fiord and the oldest part of the town of Aabenraa. It was originally built by Queen Margrethe I in 1411. The medieval castle has served during the years as a royal, ducal and national seat of administration.
In the castle, the visitors can still experience the dungeon, the fortified cellar and the 19th century detention cells in the gatehouse.
The castle has been rebuild a number of times, most recently in 1805 and has been fully restored in 1985. Since 1998, the castle has housed the region’s art museum. Brundlund Castle Art Museum displays alternating exhibitions of the museum's collection of Danish art from the 1700s up until the present. The castle gardens contain permanently exhibited sculptures.

Good evening Harriet, My TE neighbour for today.
Fine white painted edifice, shining under the winter sun, and well placed on pic. space to have good view of its surrounding.
Red roof-tops houses on far, and green lawn in FG added nice depth and scale to the image. The place is charming beauty, well collected on photo.
Have a nice weekend,

this castle looks more like a palace to me but nevertheless I like and the architecture and the photo. The cobbled path leads an eye towards and the tree in the corners adds some life to the composition. I enjoy the sight of the town in the background - the houses with the red roofs bring some extra color.
Nice light and sharpness.
Thanks for sharing

A fine point of view on this attractive castle with its unusual architecture. The shot is well composed with the castle placed off-centre and making good use of the framing trees. Good colour contrasts and excellent sharpness.

C'est une bonne composition, bien cadrée avec ces grands arbres et l'ombre au premier plan, bien vu!

A very fine picture of this interesting building. The little path leads nicely up to the gate and the tree in the upper part of the picture is providing depth. Very fine weather and good colours. An interesting note. Aabenraa is really a very attractive town. I was here once, our big band had a meeting with our Danish colleagues here, Jomfru Fanny Big Band, have you heard them?

beautiful spring photo, love the light and that striking white accent the castle creates. Nice addition of the branches shadows in the foreground.
Have a great weekend!

The many reconstructions and restorations explain why this castle may have lost some of its medieval character, but that doesn't make it less attractive. It's still a magnificent building and it has a beautiful location, which you have captured very well. By including some overhanging branches and the shadow of the nearest tree you have created as illusion of it being embedded in vegetation. The well saturated colours and the good light make this a pleasure to watch.
ourania (51079) 2014-03-14 12:18
this is a wonderful composition, the castle is bright and attractive and you've also exalted it playfully with the path leading to its entrance and with its framing by the branches and the shadows. The architecture is original and delightful, the garden and the distant neighbourhood provide pleasant context. Your light and contrast management is admirable, all the colours are rich and natural. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a lovely weekend,

I see you have been experiencing some lovely sunny weather, too!
This is a splendid castle and very different in appearance from the fortified castles that we normally see. You have used the path effectively to guide to the archway, and the details of this beautiful building.
I particularly like the shadows, which range across the lawn, giving extra interest to the otherwise plain, green surface.
Have a lovely w/e,

Bonjour, chère Harriet,
La blancheur immaculée de l'édifice ressort à merveille.
Le cadrage est parfait pour restituer la beauté des lieux avec un joli effet d'ombre sur la pelouse.
Image fort bien composée.

You did very well this nice house a little bit out of the centre to place.
A lovely castle with the white walls.
Excellent choice of your angle, this creates depth and perspective
Everything is perfect as well as light and composition.
An interesting image of a nice place with good sharpness, depth and quality
Very well composition, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

Das sieht ja auf den ersten Blick nicht sehr wehrhaft aus, aber Dein Text zeigt, dass es durchaus auch solche Teile gibt. Das Ganze war wohl mehr zum Wohnen und Regieren gedacht...
Ein schön "komponiertes" und "ausbalanciertes" Foto. Die roten Dächer des Ortes sind ein enbenfalls schöner Blickfang. Wieder eine beispielhafte Kombi aus Text und Bild!
Alles Gute aus dem frühlingshaften Siegen - nach 10 Tage blauem Himmel heute mal wieder mit Regen.
danos (103108) 2014-03-15 8:33
very nice the panoramic view of the place with the narrow pedestrian to adss depth and perspective in the scene as lead-in the eye on the castle on the backdrop.The side tree decorates perfect the whole scenery.

interesting architecture, i like also the red roof of the town in bg.
abmdsudi (57680) 2014-03-16 9:25
I love the compo, the way the pattern of the shadow in the fg lead us to the imposing white building which set off so stunningly in the peaceful surroundings and neatly arranged in widest angle possible. A good shot that you managed the light well and really brings out the color of the scene and yet not over or under expose the shadowy area. Awesome capture and tfs

Very good morning lights ambiance and nice view on the white castle
Interesting tree shades on the ground
Angshu (56760) 2014-04-02 3:03
This small neat buidling doesn't fit into our stereotypical idea of a castle which we harbour in our minds. It looks more like a residential palace. The road creates a fine lead-in and your framed the picture well with the hanging branches of the tree. I liked the long shadows and the contrast of the white building with the blue sky. As always, a fantastic informatic note...and also as always, I learnt something new from your picture!
fotka (4785) 2014-05-20 4:57
This medieval castle looks very modern almost like is was build a few years ago.
The photo has nice composition with a path leading to the castle. The branch on the top nicely filled in the empty sky. Great quality and interesting note.
jmdias (68661) 2014-05-28 7:07
interesting castle, looks more like a house than a fort. nice contrast between the white and the other colors. excellent use of the shadows, way and other elements. beautiful light. TFS.
