Oh my goodness… How stunningly gorgeous… I can see how this place would be an inspiration for the man. If I owned something like this, my writer’s pen, my camera and I would never need to leave….
I love the framing of your wonderful capture, also, Michael. xx
The sun came out on that one day during my Normandy trip, the only one that mattered to me. It was so easy to see Monet there on the banks or in a boat painting the light coming off the surface. Imagine what you could write if you stayed there…
Thank you so much, bella Donna. I am delighted that you like this one xxx

Thank you, dear Marie! It was an ambition to visit Monet’s place and see the lily pond. I’m so glad that the light was good that day! Though I’m pretty sure it looks magnificent at all times… Many, many thanks to you, Marie!! :0) x
