This image created on one of several trips to Stockholm, Sweden was captured at Drottningholms slotts (Drottingholm Palace) the private residence of the Swedish royal family.  A UNESCO Word Heritage Site, the palace was constructed in the 17th Century according to a French prototype by the architect Nicodemus Tessin the Elder.  The palace featuring elaborate salons from the 17th, 18th and 19th Centuries is surrounded by a magnificent English Park and an imposing Baroque Garden.
