Angers, Maine et Loire…

While I certainly enjoyed the few hours we spent in Angers, unfortunately it was during our visit that the weather changed against us and that Mel became unwell. Consequently we had only a relatively brief look around the castle, which houses the Apocalypse tapestry in a very dark room indeed. This image I shot handheld at an iso of 6400, and subsequently cleaned up in Photoshop.

After Angers it was time to head onto Saumur, where I had an appointment with the worlds largest collection of armoured fighting vehicles…! Couldn’t help but stop and shoot this panoramic on the way…
