Beautiful shots. Peacock is a fan fave. I find that post processing you applied on one of the photos is very appealing.

Arija said...

Oh, tut tut, bragging again with your castles and peacocking around as usual!
Great post, the nearest thing in national trust houses we have here is a farmhouse less than 200 years old... Ah what it is living in the colonies...

Carver said...

Those are fantastic shots. What a beautiful place.

Pretty serious castle you have there!

I'm told peacocks make even better alarm systems than dogs. Apparently they set up a frightful noise when their territory is encroached. I suppose that's why royalty kept them around. Probably thought they were prettier than dogs too.

As if!

Wonderful Castle like all your other castles, which I always have loved!
BTW St Nicholas is not our X-mas celebration. We also celebrate Christmas which is a more a religious feast in Church and a Christmas tree at home and we sing X-mas carols in the weeks before the 25th of December. We have four Advent Sundays in Church to prepare ourselves for X-mas just like all other western countries. St. Nicholas is just an extra event.
