That's a beautiful place! I looks like our neighbor's house. They have one kid and I wonder what else they put in there, it's so huge!

What an elegant mansion nestled on this knoll. I especially like the side lighting while not on the building, it does give the lawn and tree a beautiful glow. Nice one.

Wow! Gorgeous mansion. I wonder what its history is. I'll have to check it out the next time I'm in Portland. You captured it in such perfect lighting. I wonder if the sunshine is early morning or late afternoon. Very impressive shot!

Awesome, majestic shot! Love the last rays of the sun hanging on.

Very majestic looking mansion. It reminds me of a Mansion that I toured in Cape May, New Jersey called Emelen Physick Estate.

A beautiful perspective shot. I like the light/shadow play!

What a beautiful place, and the soft evening (?) light on the grass! Well, we don't have tulips already, they are from the flowershop :)
We still have to wait two or three weeks or so, and then IT'S SPRING :)
