Loire Valley church on Sunday...the chapel at Chateau de Chaumont-sur-Loire



During our annual visit to the International Garden Festival at Chateau de Chaumont -sur-Loire at the beginning of the month we had a stroll through the chateau rooms to check for updates but more specifically to revisit the somewhat whimsical permanent art installation (G.Steiner & J Lenzlinger) within its small chapel.




It is rather magical!


It is worth climbing up to the balcony above and take it in from a different perspective.
