The small castle 'Duinbeek', situated at a forest edge on the northern part of the peninsula Walcheren near the village of Oostkapelle, Zeeland, The Netherlands, was built in 1715.

The castle has:

-a main building (in the centre of this image) which is almost surrounded by a moat, but not good visible on this image,

-a coach-house, with stable and carriage house (left side of this image) and

-a gardeners house (right side of the image) with a hunting room and a large barn.

This image, taken on March 28th, 2017, is my weekly entry for the Wednesday B&W challenge (BWC).

I am sure this looks beautiful n colour as well but I believe the B&W brings out all the fine architectural detail of the castle.
A super piece of work Cornelius.
Added to 'the list'

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust

Perfect for the challenge my friend. The mono tones are superb, and I like the use of light, and shadow in this well composed image. tigs=^..^=

You have an excellent eye. I probably never would have had the wherewithal or intelligence to shoot the castle straight on. I can see that the previous comments mention the monotone and the composition; so I'll simply say that I agree. Fine detail and excellent use of light and dark contrast.

The lighting is really wonderful with the shadows of the branches on the path. This is a great photo! (Could you please post it in color, as well, some time?)

The reason why the sun sets in the evening is because it wants to see the sunrise in the morning. I rise in the morning because I want to see them both. RvdB
