Biltmore House

Last weekend we went to Asheville for a quick overnight trip, I wanted to take some sunset shots of the Biltmore House. The skies had last minute insurgence with some clouds and we had just a bit of the sun. This photo was taken when sun completely escaped from us behind the clouds, with just a bit of color left to the right.

btw, this photo was taken with very high resolution camera and really better seen in high resolution, with all kind of details, which can be done just by clicking on it.

Click me! I look even better in High Resolution.

    Lovely photo. Amazing what you can capture with the right equipment and the perfect conditions.

  21. That is an amazing shot of Biltmore Estate. You captured it at the exact right time of day. I’ve been there and the fact that you were also able to catch it without 200 people there is amazing in itself. 🙂
