The castle of Laussel, Marquay

One view.
Another view.

The Laussel Castle, viewed from the top of the Commarque castle keep, its towers, and its square keep with machicolations.

The Laussel castle 15th 16th centuries. In the Périgord Noir, on the right bank of GRANDE BEUNE, in the municipality of Marquay. Private property, not visitable.

The Laussel castle, residence of the Commarques, is close and under the direct sight of the Commarque castle 12th 14th 15th centuries in the municipality of Eyzies-de-Tayac-Sireuil, on the left bank of GRANDE BEUNE.

The GRANDE BEUNE flows in the VÉZÈRE, which valley is named "the Valley of the Man", because of the important prehistoric sites which are there. The prehistoric sites of the Vézère valley are classified in the World heritage by Unesco as "prehistoric sites and caves decorated in the valley of Vézère".

_ The VÉZÈRE rises to an altitude of 887 meters, in the Massif Central, on the plateau de Millevaches, in the tourbière de Longéroux, near the Puy Pendu, after a course of 211 kilometers and crossing a watershed of 9656 km², it flows into the Dordogne river in Limeuil in the Dordogne departement. Description de la Vézère.

MARQUAY is a french municipality, located in the department of the Dordogne of the Aquitaine region, populated 567 Marquayais in 2007, distributed out of 24.3 km², that is to say 23.4 hab./km².

In the Périgord noir, the municipality of Marquay shelters numerous prehistoric sites.

They are Édouard Lartet, 1801-1871, and Henry Christy, 1810-1865, who began the first searches from 1863 in the cave Richard in Les Eyzies-de-Tayac-Sireuil and in surroundings, and in the valley of Vézère where the numerous and important archaeological discoveries followed one another from 1863 until 1940, when was discovered the grotte of Lascaux.

Bonjour Joël,

Bravo pour la mise en valeur de ce beau château grâce à un très bon point de vue et un format carré approprié.
La netteté est excellente et la note, comme toujours, très détaillée.

Bonjour Joel

Un point de vue différent mais qui met bien en valeur le château sous cette belle lumière. J'aime beaucoup ce cadrage qui nous montre bien toute le verdure qui entoure le château.

Amicalement

Bonjour Joël,

Les arbres font un cadarge naturel au château. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs de l'architecture du château de Laussel. La bonne luminosité rehausse les couleurs de l'image. bonne journée.

Pierre

Une superbe mise en valeur de ce château, enchâssé dans sa gangue forestière !

...il faut que je retourne en Dordogne...

Ola Joel ,
Está uma beleza esta tua foto deste castelo rodeado de vegetação bem verde , bom momento com esta luz a iluminar as muralhas , encantador este lugar , parabéns!!
Um abraço Gonçalo

Ciao Joel,
Favolosa visione, un castello immerso nella natura fotografato con grande stile e con una luce magnifica. Mi piacciono molto i colori e quella prorompente natura attorno al maniero.
Mi complimento con te per il grande servizio che offri al popolo di TE con le sempre esaurienti note. Un caro abbraccio.
Giorgio

Bonjour Joël,

You had a superb vantage point to shoot the castle. It's height, its foreboding style, cropping it in a near-square shape, and the presence of the four individuals to give it both the human touch and the scale are all very good compositional elements. The note is spectacular... as usual.

Warm regards,

Bulent

Hi Joel,
great view, the compositon is splendid and I like the historical atmosphere and the beautiful lights, the POV is great, Tfs! Have a nice week! Kellemes hetet kívánok!

Hello Joel,
Subsequent snapshot of impressive castle with beautiful surroundings. Perfect execution with fabulous natural colors. Fantastic management of color, sharpness, super clarity, PoV. Those ruins of this castle is still very attractive and interesting. Perfect quality of this photo. Love it. Awesome work.

This POV give more green onto the image, Joel, and yet you managed a beautiful outlines and contrast to the surroundings.
The light was directly on the turrets, and made a magic illumination.
Bonsoir,

Hola Joel..

muy interesante imagen llena de romanticismo y atmosfera..me gusta el angulo que elegiste y la impresionante naturaleza que rodee este magnifico castillo..la claridad es espectacular.! muy bien visto
enhorabuena

Saludoss..Yiannis

What a beautiful shot Joel. The castle has the most perfect backdrop of lush green which allows the castle to be viewed in all its fairytale glory. Very good light has given form and volume to the architecture. The people on the walkway give a feel for the scale of the building. Excellent quality throughout. Warm regards rosemary

Hi Joël,
I have a< feeling that we must have passed here, when we stayed at Vezac and made a day trip ti Lascaux. I do not specifically remeber this castle, there is an abundance af beautiful and interesting castles in this area! This is a very good photo, perfect sharpness and composition. An interesting note and WS:s, as usual!
Kind regards
Gunnar

bonsoir Joël
qu'il est beau, ce chateau enfoui dans la verdure, ce qui lui donne un petit côté mystérieux.On pourrait imagniner toute une histoire abracadabrante de conte de fées, à partir d'une telle beauté.C'est magnifique!
Amitiés
Pascale

Bonsoir Joël,

De tous les châteaux que tu as présentés ces dernières semaines, c'est celui que je préfère, pour son décor verdoyant, son magnifique donjon et son aspect massif et authentique. Les murs se confondent presque avec les falaises et, cerise sur le gâteau, ses propriétaires donnent une échelle aux lieux ! C'est donc, plus que jamais, mon château "préféré" ;0)

Bonne soirée !

Sylvain

Hello Joel,
I like this view too, that surrounds entirely the castle with the luscious and superbly green vegetation. Sharpness and clarity are marvellous, the castle has volume and lovely chromatic hues either on its lit or its shady parts. Light management is excellent, the mild and natural contrasts fascinating. Beautiful atmosphere, well done and thank you!
All the best,
Ourania

Salut Joel.
Agrandit la vue magnifique que vous avez capturé le château d'un point élevé, ce qui nous permet de finesse des détails et l'harmonie de l'architecture, l'effet de la belle ombres et de lumières dans ses tours.
Un travail magnifique avec de bonnes couleurs et la netteté parfaite.
Passez une bonne journée.
Cordialement.
Luis.

Bonjour Joël
LE POV idéal sur le château et il semble si proche ce qui fait que l'on peut bien détailler et apprécier son architecture.

Joël
Superbe château! Tu as trouvé un bon endroit surélevé pour obtenir ce beau point de vue en plongée qui intègre bien la construction dans son environnement de verdure.

Bonjour Joël,
on peut le dire, il est bien installé dans son écrin de verdure ce château. Une photo dont la cadrage montre bien cette situation, peut-être pas des plus protégées.
Un soleil bien maîtrisé, efficace là où il se jette.
Amicalement.
Daniel.

Bonjour Joël,

Missed this one. I like the downward pov & the superb fg shadow detail showing textures despite the deep shade. Impeccable sharpness & nice color saturation & framing. I like the angled pov showing both light & shade on the corner of the castle. Merci!

Salut Joel,
Très belle architecture pour ce château, la lumière est excellente et donne du relief à la construction, parfait pdv pour valoriser le monument, bon effet aussi avec l'environnement arboré.

Dear Joël
Fantastic three capture of this wonderful castle.
Fantastic lighting and excellent sharpness.
Interesting architecture.
Fantastic photo-job.
