Castle 'de Borrekens' at Vorselaar (Belgium)

This original medieval watercastle with numerous towers and battlements dates back from the 13th century and is completely built out of white sandstone.

By renovation works in the 17th, 18th and 19th century, the settlement changed from a square walled stronghold into a beautiful fairytale castle with neo-gothic look.

    …and don't you just love a purplish-pink sky!! together with the natural framing it adds a special enchanted touch to the mood! light/spot on the sandstone castle! it suits it well! and the ruddy reflections – beautiful! the distanced view – through an opening in the woods (or so it seems) – makes us feel privileged, enabled to get a peak of a secret maybe even sacred place… ; ) greetings, sabine.
