Oh, wow! That church is so ornate! *wishes he could go there*

The baroque garden shot is fantastic too! (though a hedge maze would make it even more so!)

Thank you all for the nice things you've said :D

I thought I would return with two more pictures, although one is quite small so I hope you can make it out!


The 'bath castle' Which is used for small receptions by the queen. It's located in the park to the left of the baroque garden.

MS Frederiksborg Small picture of a small ferry that sails around the castle lake during the summer months and picks up passengers at 3 selected spots where they've made "docks". Quite a nice time, actually!


Hope you guys like 8)

They are both nice shots. I think I prefer the 'bath castle'.

If I remember the backstory well enough (it's been 10+ years since I heard it) It's the place the king would bathe eh.. sometimes. Which might sound like a bad place to hold receptions but.. it's pretty luxurious. And there aren't many remnants of it's previous purpose. 8)

I'm currently designing a personal COA (Coat of Arms) for myself. I could use some suggestions on what to do to it now. I've made everything from scratch so far so no "3 headed dragon" suggestions. :P

Just simple stuff like.. trees.. or such.. and where you think it might look appropriate. Doubt many will respond but.. it's worth a shot since I'm out of ideas.. XD

Good suggestion! I made a wizard hat :D

Not sure if I like the result though. Oh well, no need to finish it right away, I'm sure more awesome suggestions will come along. :)

If you want a proper coat of arms, you should have two supporting figures on the sides. As you are a wizard, you may prefer mythical creatures, such as a griffin on one side, and a unicorn on the other.
All that is gold does not glitter
Not all who wander are lost
The old that is strong does not wither
Deep roots are not touched by the frost

From the ashes a fire shall be woken
A light from the shadows shall spring
Renewed shall be blade that was broken
The crownless again shall be king

May I ask how closely this COA is to follow the rules of heraldry? :) It's fine if it's not at all, I'm just wondering. :D

Perhaps the motto could be moved to the bottom? :) Other than that, I quite like what you've done. :)

I agree about putting a wand in there somewhere. A wand that fizzles/sparkles/crackles! :yes:

Yeah and if you only want one wizardy thing a wand would be better than the hat, the hat looks more like a witches.

I might do that yeah! And I do plan to follow the rules sort of to an extend.. but not overly as my choice of colours so far should have proven. :P

How about if you made your crest animated since your a wizard?

Kind of an HP type thing.

Indeed. XD I like it even though pink isn't a heraldic colour. :)

Oh wow. I have no ideas for your coat of arms, but I HAVE to comment on the absolute gorgeous-ness of where you live and the castle where you used to live. USA is so....banally modern in comparison. All of the pictures you've posted are just gorgeous... <3

Agreed, alot of USA is far too boring and modern. Which is why I love Britain so much.
