A year ago, my family visited the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC. This is my fourth post from that visit. Such a beautiful place! The first image features the Grand Staircase. The weight of the exterior staircase wall creates a cantilever force which supports the weight of the large granite steps. I used a “glow” filter in Filter Forge to add a subtle glow effect to the highlights.
The next four images feature the Biltmore Conservatory. Part of the Biltmore’s Walled Garden, the Conservatory was designed by the Biltmore House architect Richard Morris Hunt. It was built to provide flowers, plants and shrubs for the house and surrounding gardens.
I captured this young fella on the playground at the Biltmore Winery and Farm Village. Is he focused on balancing himself, or is he intrigued by his shadow?
