Palatial Mural

Achilleion Palace, Corfu, Greece

Snowed again yesterday in Connecticut. The weather this year is so unpredictable and extreme. We normally head south for a week in February, but we decided not to this year. Big mistake. When I thought about all of the warm places I have been, the island of Corfu, Greece, came to mind. I remember visiting the Achilleion Palace, which was built in 1890 by the Empress of Austria, Elisabeth of Bavaria. The palace was named and designed after the mythical hero, Achilles. The palace itself contains many  murals and statues throughout the building. 

This image is of the mural in the small chapel in the palace. I had to really boost the ISO to take this handheld shot, but thanks to Lightroom's great noise reduction, it came out pretty good.
