Biltmore Estate

Spring at America's largest home is a special time of year. I have fond memories of this place. We had our high school proms on the estate which were both magical and a little surreal. When I was 16, I learned to drive my Dad's 1974 Alfa Romero GTV so that I could take my girlfriend to the dance. I figured we would look better driving onto the estate in an Italian sports car than the family's Chevy Citation . . . I now live five minutes from the gate house and had just renewed my annual pass in time to capture these images. I'm using a Sony A7rii and a Lensbaby Composer Pro II with Sweet 50 Optic lens.
