[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The construction of this magnificent building half-timbered and cantilevered dates back to Spanish times, probably before 1590. Also referred to as "Mayor's House" in memory of the representative of local government that has inhabited, it is the oldest monument in place yet civil Haute-Lesse. Old inn, it was also the venue of the court for several centuries. Three alleged witches, sisters Gaumet, were condemned and burned in Grupont in 1618.
In the area: follow the circuit fountains or cross.

Hi John,
A good capture of this Spanish house. A very sharp image with great details in the texture of this structure.
Perfect light management due to this HDR treatment.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

I like the architecture of this half timbered building with so nice details, John!

Great view with perfect sharpness and well opted POV.
The color contrast between the house and the green vegetation is well kept.
Nice PP work as well.

Best regards,
