Summer cottage indeed. It would be like calling Crater Lake a pond.

Preciosa fotografía de arquitectura con esa luz tan
Maravillosa.
Ahora me gustaría estar sentado en ese banco
Contemplando el bosque y respirando la hierba.
Un saludo, Ángel

Reminds me of the PBS show that's been running this past week on the mansion featured in Downton Abbey.

Postcard shots is coming to mind. Both images are stunning. Have a super weekend!

That's a summer cottage big enough to be a hotel. I love all the fall colors.

That is a gorgeous summer cottage! The place is just so beautiful and very special. The second picture is a pure poetry. A lonely bench, a wonderful tree and such a spectacular view. Oh, autumn is over. I truly miss autumn.

Have a very nice weekend, Lulu!

Now this is one cottage!!!
Really beautiful, Jude, and I'll bet the inside is equally so.

Have a great weekend!

I have one just like it, I really must send my staff to give it a dusting and remove the covers from the furniture so I can drop by.

Some of the most beautiful autumn images I've ever seen!

I missed your return - your week long images are spectacular!
I could live in one of those rooms.

I'm so glad you posted this. I was hoping you'd had a chance to photograph some of the homes along the Hudson. I understand they're not all faring as well as this one is.
