    Default Chateau de Pont Remy


    Had to go to France to sort something out & thought I'd combine it with a bit of poking around on someone else's
    property. First Chateau (there are more to come)
    This is the Chateau de Pont Remy in the Somme department burnt out on August 13th 2012.
    Seems it was well known to the French URBEX community as either Chateau Clochard or Chateau Pianiste (there are bits of one still in the rubble). It was going to be restored but the fire saw that one off.
    Now it sits & rots in it's own jungle like grounds.
    Made my usual undignified entrance when after faffing around for 5 minutes when no cars or people were present I got stuck between two fences and had to pretend I was taking pictures of the multitude of cars which suddenly appeared
    followed by the ubiquitous Old French woman...........
    This place is very overgrown.

    It's always great to see pix of overseas and this is - was - one very impressive building . . . but why so much use of "HDR" filtering?
    . . . be seeing you!

    The username is a big clue..... It's not 'HDR filtering'
    I'm guessing that the camera has been converted.

    Nice pics by the way, well done Infraredd
