This is part of an ongoing set of Chateau Chenonceau which I took on my last visit to France in Sept 2011.
.
This fairytale chateau Chenonceau was built on the River Cher and owes a lot of its charm to women.
Built in 1513AD by Katherine Briconnet , then made more attractive by Diane de Poitiers, then made famous by Catherine de Medici.

I live at Riddells Creek in the Macedon Ranges of Victoria, and have been involved in Horticulture all my life.
.
I play Blues Harmonica and Bodhran’ in my spare time, as well as getting involved with Genealogy and Medieval History,
I have also been acting for 40 years and was lucky to be cast as a judge in the movie “Stricly Ballroon”…
But my camera is my passion.
