Bel ensemble de décorations.
Ginnie Hart: I thought so, too, Martine.

my favorite part are the vertical stripes. never been much for ornate gold filigree. nicely captured.
Ginnie Hart: This place was totally "over the top," Sherri, so I tend to agree with you! Thanks.

Incredibly ornate detail in this design with gorgeous color! Wise words in your caption as well.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Steven. I have a feeling the angels are being kept busy these days!

What a beautiful view. So much detail, Ginnie. Look at those different colours marble and the gold. Just amazing.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Astrid. I'm remembering how over-the-top this place was inside!
The rendering of the gold color is beautiful as well as the framing you chose. It's very beautiful, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Marie!

So richly adorned with a slight "cacophony" of materials, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: It was actually a bit more than "slight," to be honest, Lisl. smile But thanks.

a wonderful view - Yes, I agree with your wish!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Philine.
Ta photo est vraiment très belle , j'aime ces intérieurs ainsi dorés
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Claudine. It was so opulent!

This must be a fascinating place to visit Ginnie, the whole monastery having been flattened in WW2.I wonder how long it took to rebuild?
Ginnie Hart: There was a movie we watched about the destruction and the rebuilding, Chris, which most of us watched. It still blows my mind that such a place was restored. I'm sure if we Google, we can find out how long it all took!
I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help?
Ginnie Hart: Spot on, Bill!

Beautiful! I like the angles in this and the colours.
Ginnie Hart: As long as you don't get dizzy, Alan! smile

It’s like some grand palace Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Actually, that's an apt description, Chad!
Net als je zegt : `Er is altijd moois te ontdekken`.
Prachtig (barok?) plafond
Ginnie Hart: I never took art/architectural history, Marjolein, but I'm sure someone else could tell us what this is. But YES, if we keep our eyes open and LOOK, there is beauty everywhere. Bedankt.

een abdij dat een tijdens WO II bijna volledig vernield werd en dan heropgebouwd werd..... Ginnie

knappe foto's van deze mooie versieringen, die wel heel rijkelijk zijn....

prettige dag gewenst
Ginnie Hart: It's hard to believe it had to be built and decorated all over again, Willy. It blows my mind. Bedankt.
Un très joli cadrage.
Merci pour le partage.
Bonne journée Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Pascale.

Superbe cadrage
JP
Ginnie Hart: Merci, JP.
Everything that goes up must come down. But we have not reached the peak yet, so let's hope for the best (or the worst!).
Ginnie Hart: We're all waiting for the peak so that the slope will start falling, LC. God have mercy.
Wow, what a great perspective Ginnie! Lovely ornate decoration smile
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, kind sir.
You made the very best of this opportunity Ginnie, what beautiful work.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Brian.
I like this dynamic viewpoint. Friendship
what a variety of things to see.
