Whimsical Windows - By the lake

A special day by the lake captured by Patti...
Toby hosts a great meme, Whimsical Windows - Delirious Doors. We look around for windows, doors and accompanying architectural gems...

Years ago, Patti and I attended a wedding at the beautiful Candlewood Inn situated alongside its named lake in Western Connecticut. 

I really like the venue with the water in the background, and am really fond of the very tall arched window that allows the diffused lighting to fall over the person and allowing shadows and reflections to add a nice glow to this fine day 

At this point in the reception the lovely bride is shown, maybe after the bouquet was tossed. The blend of window, shadow and beauty is undeniable. I have always liked the series of window views from that day, merely waiting for the right moment to post it – and this fun meme is just the place – thanks Toby! 

(I note that the date is stamped on the photo - I found that trying to erase the stamp only detracted, so it stays - the day so much fun that the stamp matters not…)

Oh, I agree, this is a beautiful combination of shadow, architecture, and pure emotion - great shot! I'm so pleased to have provided you with an appropriate venue :)
Have a great week!

those windows are perfect for the viewing the scenery on the outside and for illuminating the scenery on the inside.
