Photographer's Note

This is Frederiksborg Castle in Hillerød. Another picture I made of this picture can be seen here. If you look closely on that picture, you see a small tower or gate to the left. My second picture of this castle is made through that gate.

The oldest parts of the Castle were built in 1560 by King Frederik II and the castle is named after him.

The most parts of the present castle was built between 1600-1620 by the son of Frederik II, Christian IV in Dutch Renaissance style.

Christian IV was a very important king; most of Copenhagen (or Denmarks) old building are built by him (like Rosenborg Castle - which you can see on Tue's pages, The Round Tower, and Christianshavn, a part of Copenhagen)

The castle burnt in 1859 but was rebuilt from 1860-84 with financial support from brewer J. C. Jacobsen and later by the Carlsberg Foundation.

The castle is built on three island in the castle lake.

About the picture: I cropped a little bit of the top, increased the contrasts a tiny bit and the red and green somewhat. The last stap was sharpening a bit.
