I found these fine pictures of a web photo site
I tried to find the e-mail address of M. Courossé to ask his permission, but I could not (now see the comment below from Thierry C). So I hope he will not be offended if we publicise his photography with these three 'borrowed' photos from his flickr page. He, like everybody else, has been enchanted by the curious 'l'Année dernière à Marienbad' quality of the parc de Richelieu, with its 'ghost' castle.
