You really captured the lovely, intricate details of this wonderful landmark. And the soft colors of the cherry blossom trees make a wonderful addition and contrast. We have many lovely cherry blossom trees in Washington D.C. thanks to Japan.

Enjoyed your photos!

Regards, Julie

Thanks for the vote, Maras1999. As I mentioned previously, this castle is under the maintenance now. It'll take a long time for sure. Anyhow, I'm glad you like it. :)
