Two castles, Curemonte

One view.
Other view.

In the village of Curemonte, in a fortified surrounding wall, the castle of Saint-Hilaire with square towers, the 14th century, the castle of Plas with round towers, the 16h century.

CUREMONTE is a french commune, located in the departement of Corrèze of the Limousin area, populated of 219 Curemontois in 2007, distributed out of 8.8 km², that is to say 24.8 hab/km².

The village of Curemonte quoted in 860, medieval city stretched on a rock headland, sheltered successively the Gallo-Romans, the Merovingian ones, before depending on the Viscounts of Turenne at the 11th century.

Salut Joël!
C'est une photo très belle!
La qualité est excellente et les résultats visuels sont vraiment attrayants!
Merci du partage,
Amitiés,
Neyvan

Bonjour Joël,

Très curieux cette localisation rapprochée de ces deux châteaux à l'architecture à la fois proche et différente. Très belle présentation qui les entoure de verdure et fait resortir les contrastes sous ce ciel nuageux.
Amitiés,
Roger

Joel,
This is a fine shot of this great castle. The line of thees in the foreground create a nice border for the shot while the overhanging limb frames and creates depth. The angle of the shot is great allowing us to see the different facades of the towers. The lighting and colors are great and the photo has excellent sharpness.
TFS,
Asa

Bonjour Joël,

Lovely summer picture during the winter period.
This green of the trees in foreground fiel very pleasant when here rain in Belgium.
Sharpness and clarity give a nice image.
Nice contrasted colors.
Excellent composition, good presentation too.
Very well done, TFS.

Amitiés,
John.

Bonjour Joel,

Trois églises et deux châteaux dans le village, on voit ou se situaient les priorités à l'époque. Il y a des tous rondes et des tours carrées sur la même construction, on croirait un hybride.

Amicalement

Serge

Bonjour Joël,

Les arbres cadrent bien les châteaux. La prise de vue permet de distinguer les détails et les couleurs de l'architecture des châteaux Saint-Hilaire et de Plas. La qualité de la lumière rehausse les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.

Joël
Curieux ces deux châteaux accolés...chacun avait son église privée en plus? Tu en as réalisé trois superbes photos. Encore un endroit à noter pour des escapades futures.

Bonsoir Joël,

Voilà un bel assemblage architectural qui émerge littéralement de la verdure, induisant une sorte d'inaccessibilité des lieux. Je n'aurais d'ailleurs pas fait de distinction entre les deux constructions sans ta note, joliment illustrée par les autres points de vue de ces châteaux. De la belle ouvrage, très didactique. Bravo.
Cordialement.
Guy.

Hello Joel,
a picturesque photo of this beautiful view, the composition is spectacular, great POV and details, Tfs! Have a nice weekend! Kellemes hétvégét kívánok!

An unusual photo Joel with chateaus so close together - I hope the owners were on good terms!
Well taken with the chateaus sticking up out of vegetation. Good colours under a miserable sky.
cheers

Bonsoir Joël,
Il est intéressant de voir deux châteaux voisins dans le même village. Vos points de vue sont magnifiques, et nous pouvons admirer deux architectures très différentes.
D'accompagnement des arbres fourni un bon cadre ajoute à la composition.
Amicalement,
Charo

Ciao Joel,
splendido castello immerso in una ricca vegetazione, davvero stupenda la luce.
Mi colpisce molto la grande naturalezza dei colori e la ricchezza dei dettagli.
Complimenti mio caro amico.
Un caro saluto
Giorgio

Buonasera Joel
è incredibile la costruzione così vicina di questi due castelli. la forma differente delle torri aiuta la mente a separarli, ma da questo punto e ad un primo sguardo la costruzione sembra unica e particolare, come se degli elementi fossero stati aggiunti in tempi diversi. la scarsità del numero delle finestre e la loro altezza non lascia dubbi sugli scopi di questo colosso di pietra. grazie per questa bellezza storica.
amicalement

Hi Joel,
I like your presentation with the castle raising above the trees. The trees and a branch in the left upper corner make natural frame. Great colors, light, pov and sharpness.
The castle remind me to the castles of the Teutonic Order in north part of Poland.
Best regards,
Zbigniew

Bonjour Joel,

Excellent shot and beautiful details.
Best regards
Janusz
