Photographer's Note

A picture taken yesterday from Castle - Abbey of Male Belgium, a 5 km of Bruges it's very old Castle, tommorow more clarification.
History;
Male has a small, but very scenic center, with several little old farms. The most important construction however, is the monumental castle. It is said that already in the 9th century there used to be a defence tower here for protection against the vikings.
The castle was inaugurated (1166) by the archbishop of Canterbury, Thomas Moore, but was probably already built a few years before by the count of Flanders, Philips of Alsace. It served mainly as a residence for the counts of Flanders. During the French occupation, French soldiers occupied the stronghold. In 1302 the castle was recovered by Bruges (onder guidance of Jan Breydel, Pieter de Koninck and William of Gullik).

This picture, I have cropped to a better composition, a pety but, very pathetic weather situation, rain.

I hope you like it, with the new story.
