Sepia Sunset/ Sepia Scenes

Not your ordinary cottage by the lake

Actually, this is probably a year-round home...not a cottage. But even for that it's not exactly "ordinary," is it? This man's home really is a castle.

The house looks very mysterious just like a haunted house. It's probably the dramatic sky and the Sepia toning that makes the picture a story.

It looks like a castle to me.
I would love to spend some time here.
It won't hurt a bit - I'm sure! ;)

Mine is up too!

I agree this is perfect for a B&B. But of course I wanted one of this.

Nicely done with the sepia. Works so well with this subject.

That house, a lakeview - he should feel like a king!
Lovely sepia tone.

Deb said...

Great find! The sky is spectacular and the house of course! I could only imagine living there, and taking beautiful sunset pictures every evening!

Jacob said...

The lighting here is spectacular...there's a certain time of day - doesn't happen very often - when everything is bathed in a kind of soft light...that's what's going on in this photo!

Great job!

Ralph said...

This is a fine 'cottage', on a lovely Ontario lake. The sepia when added to the classic lines of the building seems to be perfect. A classic rendition of years bygone - the right look of yesteryear!

alphawoman said...

Wow! Looks great.

It is indeed a castle by the sea. I like it and it would be nice to wake up, if I was still smoking, and go out on the terrace and smoke my pipe and drink my coffee from Colombia and read my New York Times from Japan.

Small City Scenes said...

I love that house. I want that house. It is magnificent and the sepia tone makes it look like a house of days gone by. A Rockefeller mansion or such. MB

Leora said...

Love this house. Reminds me of the movie Rebecca, based on the book by Daphne DuMaurier.

The house is beautiful, of course, but the sepia shading is AWESOME! I love it - This is one of my favorites of yours

George said...

This is definitely Not ordinary, but the sepia picture of the 'cottage' is also extraordinary.

That is the chicken said...

Just think of the cleaning! Ouch!

Barbara said...

Great capture from the landscape to the building to the beautiful sky.... All elements together make for a awesome sepia shot.

Great photo and beautiful home.

Felisol said...

I'd settle for the garden folly.
It's an old dream way back from my childhood.
Then again the whole house/garden scene is like a forgotten dream one could walk right in to.

I think I would have to do a bit of rebuilding - right on target as usual.

PS Thank you for the nice comments!

T and S said...

WOW...that's a lucky man's home. The location and the castle both have come out beautifully in this sepia processing. Well done...Thomas

The white details of the trim really stand out in this photo.

Looks like a wonderful mansion to me! I wouldn't even mind being the maid there if I had quarters in the main house sicne I would be a live in maid. lol
