Day ends in Chambord

Uploaded: April 15, 2010


Possibly the most magnificent "chateau" in Loire Valley was available for an exclusive tour without the crowds of tourists that usually get around this lovely place. The reason? Arrival in late afternoon, a quite hour where the charm of the place is offered for the ones that can enjoy it...just the sound of nature around and the daylight falling slowly.

Exif: F Number: 5.6, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/30 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 100, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 17.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS 7D
