Pierrefonds April 2010!  
Here are a selection of my photos from Pierrefonds, from the filming that took place last Thursday and Friday. I know there are lots out there already but the internet connection in the hotel was absolute pants, and I've been playing yesterday and today to get them up on Flickr, which I haven't used before. I hope some of them are of interest, at least... The link is here.

In other parts of the holiday we ate an awful lot of good food, and visited palaces - particularly Versailles, which myself and archaeologist_d saw on a cloudless sunny day, and it shone! The Hall of Mirrors was wonderful, although overall, it did feel too cold, and large, and souless. Le Petit Trianon warmed us up though - you could imagine someone actually living there. It was poignant.

And I met a bunch of lovely fangirls too *waves* including smoo_nyc, crayford and her sister R. and of course, yavannauk. There were others too, but I don't know everyone's lj names. I had a great time and roll on June!

Will check out the photos in a minute, but after checking my calendar the only day in June that I absolutely have to be at home for is the 15th. Anything else I can work around, but I have to be here on that day. So, what dates would work for you? *bg*

I have no set plans yet for June, which is why I want to lock something in - it's a shame that the only day that you can't make is the 15th - in an ideal world that would be the week to pick, really! :) Still, how about the week before and the week after - at least one of them should be within the filming schedule. The week I went last year was the earlier week, I believe, looking at my old lj entries...

Absolutely love that purple coat!

It's beautiful, isn't it? Although a pain in the arse to pick up and cart back for the next take :)

I'm about to check out the pics but we were just reading at Versailles and The Hall of Mirrors in humanities last week!! lol

Yay! It was the first time for me, and while impressive, still really sad, for me anyway. I'm a bit of a monarchist at heart (as I'm Engliah, I think I'm allowed :)

*wee* Your pics're lovely, thank you so much for sharing! :D

Angel, why so adorable??? ♥
And Tony laughing - amazing! *cough*nice arse*cough*
It seems as if Colin, Rupert and Richard had fun together. :D
Bradley looking ever so manly: GUH!

Would it be ok to use the pics for icons (with credit of course)?

Thanks for posting the photos! You got some great ones. Man, it looks cold there.
Valderys: Merlin - prettier than Arthurvalderys on April 14th, 2010 12:06 pm (UTC)
Not in the sun! It was bloody freezing in the wind though, and really crisp in the early morning when the ones below the drawbridge were taken.

These are great but this one

is so cute I love the look on Colin's face and would love to know what Rupert said to him.

Thanks so much for sharing :)

It's a slightly suspicious, I'm fond of you anyway kind of a look, isn't it? :)

Those are utterly fabulous! Wow!
Valderys: Merlin - prettier than Arthurvalderys on April 14th, 2010 12:48 pm (UTC)
There were a lot of fangirls there, especially on the first day! It was great!
Mellacitamellacita on April 14th, 2010 12:42 am (UTC)
Looks like a brilliant time. <3
Valderys: Merlin - prettier than Arthurvalderys on April 14th, 2010 12:49 pm (UTC)
Hanging out of the window to get all the later shots was slightly less fun, but generally, yes! :)

Your pictures are lovely and remarkably clear, so thank you for sharing! :D

(Also - SO JEALOUS THAT YOU GOT TO GO TO FRANCE. Good on you for having a lovely time while I rot in a university library in Australia. ;)

Valderys: Merlin - prettier than Arthurvalderys on April 14th, 2010 12:50 pm (UTC)
Well, I'm a university librarian here in the UK, so I do get to rot in a university library most of the year! :)

Yay! We must do something else together sometime! I didn't take quite that number - I took about 700 altogether...

*waves back*
Wow! Lovely pics. Great summmary of the visit. However it does not capture all the waiting around and all the times when it was doubtful we would see anything.

I'm a bit of an Angel FAn girl so I love those the best.

Richard seemed to always look up at the cameras


(I WANT TO GO BACK)
Valderys: Merlin - prettier than Arthurvalderys on April 14th, 2010 02:17 pm (UTC)
Re: *waves back*
Well, I thought, somehow, that all the detail of the waiting around would not be of interest to our readers, surprisingly :) I hope you got loads of Angel for yourself? Yeah, and Rupert looks up too - I don't think I captured one, but he did keep looking up as well.

Roll on June!!! :)

Awwwwwwwwwwwww!!
NOSTALGIA!!!
I love the pictures! Thanks for sharing! ♥
Valderys: Merlin - prettier than Arthurvalderys on April 14th, 2010 02:18 pm (UTC)
Well, let's face it, there were a lot of fangirls on that first day - loads of us! I'm not surprised we didn't necessarily get to chat to everyone.

Thanks for sharing the pics with us. Angel is so pretty.
Valderys: Merlin - prettier than Arthurvalderys on April 14th, 2010 02:19 pm (UTC)
Personally I think Katie is prettier, but Angel was lovely too! Thank you for commenting!
