CASTLE of Morthemer, XIVe XVe centuries, restored at the XIXe century. Private property.
One sight
Other sight

Valdivienne is a French commune, located in the department of la Vienne of the Poitou-Charentes area, populated of 2308 Valdiviennois, distributed on 62 km², that is to say 38 h/km².

The commune of Valdivienne is created in 1969 by the fusion of Morthemer, Salles-de-Toulon and Saint-Martin-la-Rivière then followed by la Chapelle-Morthemer.

The village is on the hillsides on which the castle is drawn up, and dominates the course of la Dive river, at its feet.

Morthemer was the first baronnie of Poitou, and is also one of the most beautiful villages of Poitou. The village preserves old houses of XVe XVIIe centuries.
In the cemetery, one can see a cross hosannière of romanesque style.

Salut Joël,
Avec sa blancheur, la bâtisse se détache bien devant le ciel bleu. J'aime beaucoup ces petits toits très pointus.
Amicalement,
Fabrice

Joel, this is a great one. The tallness of the castle really comes out in the shot and the lighting is great for showing the details. Nice presentation.

Bonsoir Joël,
il y a une géométrie excellente dans cette architecture que tu as parfaitement captée dans ton bon cadrage, qui a aussi une grande perspective du château vers le ciel bleu si propre.
Une bonne gestion de la lumière, dans une belle réalisation.

Bonsoir Joël,
Magnifique, élégant et élégant château avec une belle architecture. La lumière est très bonne et apprécier tous les détails, y compris les perspectives et les couleurs sont excellentes. Bravo!
Amicalement,

Hello Joël,
A superb capture of this massive keep, which benefits much from a lovely ambient light. A very interesting place to live though I imagine that the stairs could prove difficult from time to time :-) Thanks for sharing.

Hi Joel,
Very interesting place. This huge white castle is an unreal sight entirely before the blue sky. Sight fitting a tale rather. The optic angle is a superb, beautiful photo. Have a nice day
George

Hi Joël!
The picture is so sharp and has a very good light management!
The object - the Castle - looks so impressive and beautiful, thanks to the quality of the photograph as well!
TFS - Congratulations!
Warmest regards,
Neyvan

Bonjour Joël,
Belle vue de ce château blanc sur le bleu du ciel. L'image est clair et esthétique.
Toutes les trois images sont belles, je préfère la principale.
Merci pour la note informative.

Olá Joel

Este céu todinho azul faz realçar os muitos detalhes desta bela arquitetura. Ótima luz e gostei do ponto de vista...meus parabéns, uma bela fotografia.

Hola Joel:

Si bien el elemento principal esta demasiado centrado dentro del plano vertical, me agrada mucho la majestuosidad de este castillo, aprovechando adecuadamente la fuerte iluminación, para destacar los detalles y matices de su fachada.

Se observa mucho majestuosidad desde el POV utilizado, y eso me gusta. Sin duda, lugares dignos de ser admirados.

Saludos, John

Salut Joël,
Une vue impressionnant! Le PdV basse et la clarté des murs contre le ciel tout bleue renforce l'aire imposant de la tour, qui ne présente pas aucune vestige de distortion de perspective.
Amicalement, José.

HI Joel,
A very large and impressive cathedral here. I like your low perspective and well managed light and exposure. Great colors and depth. TFS. Gerald
