Le Chatelier ~ see the stars on a summer’s night


Here are some remarkable, long-exposure, night-time images of Le Chatelier in the South Touraine.

There is relatively little light pollution in the South Touraine sky and this afforded a perfect opportunity for professional photographer Graham Shackleton to take some superb shots of the clear starry skies of summer 2010.

The light is extraordinary, enjoy the effect Graham created:

    Some of the things we love the most about the time we spend chez nous in Le Grand-Pressigny are the quality of the light, the blueness of the skies and the stars at night. We just don’t get that any more in the UK.

    Happy New Year Jim!
    Wishing you all the best throughout 2011.
    I will use the French adjective “bluffant” to describes Mr Shackleton’s photos. It looks like day but, we see stars!
    Le Châtelier brings back some memories of past trips to the “canton”. Though, we have never visited the castle itself. I remember that there’s a dolmen nearby, too.
