Biltmore in pictures

An American “Versailles.” Unfortunately interior photography is not permitted, but hopefully you’ll still be impressed by outside shots of the house and its gorgeous gardens. For more about Biltmore, be sure to check out this week’s narrative.

And there’s even an award winning winery on site too. 

And no home from the Gilded Age would be complete without its famous 1913
 Stevens-Duryea C-Six seven-passenger touring car.

I’ve had it for about a year and a half, and with the exception of night shots that I don’t feel come out the greatest, it suits its purpose πŸ™‚ Hints, hmm…I’m so much a aim and center kind of a picture taker. I do feel though that digital cameras for the most part are very user friendly. Good luck in deciding!
