Ooidonk Castle
Photo By Thienthu Vu

  • Title: Ooidonk Castle
  • State/Province/Region: Indiana
  • Country: Belgium
  • Nearest Area: Bruxell
  • Nearest Town: Gent
  • Brief Directions: In 1870 a large restoration started by the French architect Parent. He adapted the castle to the living standards of his period. The exterior was left mostly intact, apart from a couple of pseudo-renaissance style adaptions. The interior was completely remodeled so that nowadays we can see how a large, 19th century, mansion looked like.
  • Notes: Ooidonk Castle lies east of the village of Bachte-Maria-Leerne, a few kilometers south west of Gent. The castle's name is a derivation of the word 'hodonk' which means a higher piece of land in a swamp.
  • Best Season: Summer
  • Description: The briged to Ooidonk castle reflex in the calm water .

    Thanks Alena and David! I took a lot of shots of this landscape, but placing a person in the shot imparted the sense of amazement and exhilaration I was trying to capture. Merry Christmas!

    Exhilarating photo Laura! Being in the foreground gives the viewer the sense of how vast and spectacular our earth is. The image also allows for the outdoor photographer to reflect back on times...
