Palace Patterns

Palace Patterns

Sometimes life doesn’t go the way you planned. After a wonderful two days in Graz, a flat tire and a public holiday got in the way of continuing the trip. While this meant we would not be able to spend as much time in our next destination, there was more time to explore Graz. One of the many beauties of Graz, Austria is Eggenberg Palace, and this was on the agenda for the extra day. The was built in the 1600’s. The palace is very beautiful inside, but the outside impressed me as well. The interesting patters the courtyard walls made, from the arches to the placement of the lamps, struck my eye.

This was a very easy outdoor shot. What was difficult was making sure I was standing centered and not at an angle. This required a few shots and a bit of adjustment in Lightroom. Thankfully it turned out. I have not paid attention to this before and had what could have been wonderful pictures ruined. The wide-angle lens also helped capture this. I put it at 29mm, as 15 tends to distort lines.

Lens: EF-S 15-85 at 29 mm
