Reflection at Frederiksberg Palace
Frederiksberg Palace (not to be confused with Fredericksborg Castle) is a Baroque residence, located in Frederiksberg, Denmark, adjacent to the Copenhagen Zoo. It commands an impressive view over Frederiksberg Gardens, originally designed as a palace garden in the Baroque style. Constructed and extended from 1699 to 1735, the palace served as the royal family’s summer residence until the mid-19th century. Since 1869, it has housed the Royal Danish Military Academy.
As crown prince, Frederick IV had broadened his education by travelling in Europe. He was particularly impressed by the architecture in Italy and, on his return to Denmark, asked his father, Christian V, for permission to build a summer palace on Solbjerg as the hill in Valby was then known.
Juzno is still under the weather but he thought it might cheer his spirit if he go back to photo editing. To his shock, majority of the image files that were cataloged in Lightroom were missing. It must have been wiped out when he updated to the latest version of Lightroom. The whole revelation made his illness worse. Oh well, he thought, it is what it is. Que sera sera.
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.
