Hello Meryem, thank you for the compliment. Although Drottningholm Palace is the residence of the Swedish royal family, the park and part of the gardens are open to the public.

Last june 2007 we spent our vacation in Stockholm.

Best regards, Claus

Greetings Claus..my trips into the world of Panoramio seem to be fewer than ever..I realised that it is some time since I was last here..I note that you left a comment for me recently which I will hopefully get round to answering soon..The list of un-answered mail grows even longer..I shall return to photography and start posting more images and chatting to my friends eventually..There is a brand new camera in the form of a Pentax K-7 just waiting to be used..I just need to find some inspiration ;>)

As for this excellent photo, I enjoy the well structured formality of these wonderful palaces..they just ooze wealth and opulence..From a time when graciousness pomp and ceremony meant power and influence to the chosen few..Nothing changes much Claus..

Best wishes..
