Architecture combined to Nature

It was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1966. In 1991, members of the American Institute of Architects named the house the "best all-time work of American architecture" and in 2007, it was ranked twenty-ninth on the list of America's Favorite Architecture according to the AIA.

Waterfall Castle, Poland

Social media sites are filled with posts of people sharing photos of the places they've seen and long to go. Some of these pictures are the same old photos that we've all seen and some are unique perspectives to the landmarks we thought we knew. If we're lucky, a photo will entice us with the thought of a destination that would not have occurred to us otherwise. These images have the power to change our perception of a place we may have never heard of or only know by name.Admittedly, the "Waterfall Castle in Poland" is one of those pictures. It features a stone castle seemingly carved out of the side of a lush cliff and gracefully caressed by gently falling water. Ancient yet immaculate. Manmade but also one with nature. The image appeals to our sense of adventure, our need to embrace history and our desire to be humbled by nature
