View of the backside and pard from Het Loo Palace (Dutch: Paleis Het Loo), meaning "The Woods Palace". The symmetrical Dutch Baroque building was designed by Jacob Roman and Johan van Swieten and was built between 1684 and 1686 for stadtholder-king William III and Mary II of England. The garden was designed by Claude Desgotz.
The palace was a residence of the House of Orange-Nassau from the 17th century until the death of Queen Wilhelmina in 1962. The building was renovated between 1976 and 1982. Since 1984, the palace is a state museum open for the general public, showing interiors with original furniture, objects and paintings of the House of Orange-Nassau.

Paleis Het Loo een van de mooiste onderhouden kastelen van Nederland, qua bouwstijl zijn er wel mooiere, maar niets afdoen aan dit mooie gebow.
Mopoi gedaan met het klein beetje tuin op de voorgrond waardoor de sfeer maar toeneemt.
Heel mooi foto werk, bedankt.
Prettig en warm weekend gewenst,

A very cleverly composed photo, using the trees to shield the image from the sky, which in that light would have been over-exposed. The colours and definition are wonderful and your subject matter is delightful.
