The snowy garden is reflected in one of the rear windows of Dundurn Castle in Hamilton. Overlooking Lake Ontario at Burlington Heights and built in 1835, there are over 70 rooms, of which 40 are open to the public to  experience a taste of the 19th century life in a grand country home for the MacNab family and the servants working below stairs.

  1. Terrific reflection as always, Lesley! Lovely, interesting place! Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Enjoy!


  2. So there are only 30 rooms left for the family and servants? Tsk!
    Beautiful reflection, Lesley! I like your composition here, too. The pillar really adds something to the photo.

  3. That’s a perfect reflection… looks like a painting in that elegant space.

  4. Very nice! The verticle scale of everything in this photo is great!

  5. The cool shades of blue and gray add to the intrigue of this photo… I love the glimpse of the garden beyond the door… Just beautiful!


  6. This reflection is awesome. Interesting contrast between nature and house. Inside – outside.

  7. An interesting image, I must make an effort to learn a little bit about photography. Judging from your fotos, a point and shoot approach isn’t quite enough!
