It's challenging to take unusual or original photos of such a famous place. I've been here so many times and I still have a hard time getting away from the standard, and beautiful, postcard views of the castle. I have a lot of those. So each time I go I try to find some aspect that I can focus on.
These are the spires on the roof of the main section of the building (not the part that bridges the river). If you didn't already know they are from Chenonceau, you might be hard-pressed to say where they are. I believe that the tallest spire with the gilding rises over the chapel on the northeast corner of the castle.
The day we visited, Wednesday, started out as a very rainy day. But by lunchtime the rain stopped, the clouds parted, and it turned into a very pleasant afternoon.
