© 2017 Thousand Word Images by Dustin Abbott

I just did another trip to the fabulous Chateau Montebello in Quebec. I’ll be writing about the Chateau in summer soon, but I wanted to share this image I took of my wife while exploring some new areas of the property. This grand old ballroom/salle had a very rich, timeless quality, with very heavy curtains leaving it (at the time) all in shadow. I had Lana go and crack one of the curtains to look out the window, and the resulting shot captured a lot of the ambiance of being in this big, empty room. Here in this room… (P.S. I’m reviewing Sigma’s DN line of lenses for Sony mirrorless and will be reporting on them soon).
