Château de Saumur: its different tones

On the last night (Sunday) of our #loirevelo trip we stayed in the excellent Hotel Anne d'Anjou in Saumur. The front façade of the hotel faces the Loire, while the back is overlooked by the château. I took a number of photos of the château from the time of our arrival around 7.30pm through to about 6.30am Monday morning. 

About 8.30pm from near L'Orangerie where we ate (above and below)

Around 11.30pm with a full moon
