Château de Chenonceau, France – Forgotten Postcard

Château de Chenonceau, France - Forgotten Postcard

The Château de Chenonceau in the Loire Valley of France is a popular travel destination. This iconic castle sits partly over the Cher River. On still mornings you can see the Château reflected in the river below.

For me, Chenonceau had a fairytale feeling that I tried to recreate with this Forgotten Postcard. The square format, which I’m really enjoying working in lately, helped accentuate the strong graphic nature of the reflection.

    This is definitely one of my favorites now. I love the symmetry in the photo and the extra textures just make it look so classic. Love the musical notation that overlays as well… makes the image even more lyrical. I’m privileged to have been able to see this printed too… it looks AWESOME in the square frames and I think whoever buys it at the show in 2 weeks will be very very happy! Great work!

      Thank you! I think there will be many more square frames in the future. I’m glad the sheet music works with this. I thought it added to the fairytale 🙂

      Mine too! Granted I haven’t been to that many yet. I hope to visit more and I’d love to go back here as well. Too many places to visit!
