Drottningholm Palace a UNESCO World Heritage

Drottningholm Palace

Today I went to Drottningholm Palace to take some photospheres of the palace and the grounds. It was a really nice day with sunshine and not that many tourists.

History

Drottningholm Palace is on UNESCO’s World Heritage list. It is the most well-preserved royal castle built in the 1600s in Sweden and at the same time is representative of all European architecture for the period.

The combination of the exotic Chinese Pavilion pleasure palace, the palace theatre and the magnificent palace gardens make a visit to Drottningholm a unique experience.

Influenced by French prototype, the palace was built by architect Nicodemus Tessin the Elder by commission of Queen Hedvig Eleonora. A number of royal personages have since then left their mark on the palace.

The Palace is Their Majesties the King and Queen’s permanent home residence. The rooms in the southern wing of the palace are reserved for this purpose. The rest of the palace and grounds are open to the public year round.

 

Equipment used

This photosphere was taken with my Canon EOS 550D and Canon 8-15mm f/4 L USM Fisheye Lens. I used a Gitzo GM2561T Carbon fibre monopod and the Nodal Ninja R1 head with the RD5 rotator.
 

Post-Processing

All images was shot in RAW and post-processed in Camera Raw, PhotoShop, PTGui Pro and krpano Tools.
