Photography Monday: Hearst Castle Part II

Time to share the last of the photos from our visit to Hearst Castle.  Over the weekend, we watched the American Experience show about Robert Ripley of Believe It or Not! fame.  We found out that William Randolph Hearst was the one responsible for putting Ripley on his way to national fame by offering him an outlet for his column to be distributed by King Features Syndicate.  The rest is history.

Such a grand side entrance.

It was so sad to see this magnificent pool emptied because of the drought.

What exquisite detail underneath the balcony.

The castle is gorgeous from every angle especially against the California blue sky.

For me, the best view on the property.

I hope my photos prompt you to make a visit to Hearst Castle.  It is well worth the time and effort.  You won’t be disappointed.

We must be alarmingly enterprising, and we must be startlingly original, and do new and striking things which constitute a revolution. -William Randolph Hearst
