Daily Photo Tour - A Winter Fantasy

Sleeping Beauty Castle is so glorious this time of year and it's just asking to have its picture taken by every passerby. With it being the most photographed thing in the park, it can be a bit of a challenge to capture a different perspective of it; a challenge I welcomed one evening. As I set up, I wondered what the castle might look like to a child seeing it for the first time. The castle towering overhead in all it's grandeur, beckoning every prince and princess to enter it's gates to a wondrous world of winter fantasy.

Hi Michaela...I'm excited every morning to see the newest photo on Tours. The anticipation builds as I take the time to read the description first. When you said you wondered how the Castle might look to a child seeing it for the first time, I knew it was going to be good. Wow! it took my breath away. Anyone seeing the Castle as it is in your picture would feel it was there "just for them". It's great to start my day with a smile. Thanks.
