A view of the castle Venes.
The Castle is a site (since the twelfth century) situated between Albi and Castres in the Tarn, Midi - Pyrenees in the heart of the land of plenty. It is part of the municipality of Lautrec and is located near the Episcopal City of Albi listed as World Heritage by UNESCO in 2010.
Enjoy this set of buildings, while retaining their original feudal aspect, offer all the comfort of the XXI century. A rare treat for lovers of beautiful stones instead.
Whether to celebrate an event in a unique setting for a holiday or bed and breakfast or a large charming cottage you will be captivated by the serenity and beauty.

This is a nice composed shot of these fine buildings. The placement of the buildings work well creating a well balanced scene. The sky is great and you have captured it perfectly here. The lighting is great and the photo has fine color and sharpness.

Le site est sympa ainsi que les batiments. Par contre je me demande pourquoi il n'y a rien au milieu... pas de point d'accroche pour le regard... vide quoi ! ça me rappelle une autre de tes photos... pour moi ce n'est pas équilibré...

sunny days can be quite difficult for photographers due to the heavy contrast between lights and shadows. You managed these conditions very well and as a result all the details have been shown very clearly. I like the whole composition as well which is far from classic way of presenting castles. Good colors and well given sharpness.
Thanks for sharing
