Sint-Pieters-Rode - Castle of Horst with rainbow just before sunset (Photo blog)
The castle and the chapel of Horst are photogenic landmarks near my new home. So in recent months I went out to photograph them several times, mostly in the evening and at night or when there were special weather conditions. I tried to create some unique photos of these monuments that differ from the images that already have been captured by many other people.
The castle of Horst is located in the village of Sint-Pieters-Rode (Holsbeek, Belgium). The castle was built in the mid-14th century and is still quite authentic. The former living rooms, made of brick and sandstone, are mostly from the 16th and 17th centuries. After a heavy rainshower a rainbow appeared above the castle and the last light of the sun gave the castle a beautiful orange-yellow glow.
