Photographer's Note

The Frederiksborg Castle (Slot in Danish) is of Dutch Renaissance design. It is the largest renaissance palace in Scandinavia. The castle is named for Frederik II, who ruled Denmark and Norway from 1559 until 1588. Most of what now stands was built by Frederik's son, King Christian IV, who ruled from his father's death until his own in 1648. The castle now houses the Museum of National History.

The castle is situated on Slotsø (Palace Lake). I especially enjoyed strolling about the grounds, which include a large Baroque garden.
