Castle of the Past

If you haven't heard by now, the Sleeping Beauty Castle is currently undergoing renovations that promise to bring a new look for Disneyland's 60th anniversary celebration. Although the exact details are unclear, diamonds will definitely be a recurring theme, and there is speculation that the castle may be restored to its more muted and gray previous color scheme, eschewing the pink that's become synonymous with the castle over the past ten years.

So at the moment, the Sleeping Beauty Castle is literally under wraps, and I figured this would be a good time to post a few castle shots I've taken in the past that never quite made the cut, but which show different angles and details of the castle.  You'll probably never see it quite like this again!

A freehanded shot one evening before the fireworks.

You can attribute the different saturation to my shooting this and the previous photo in JPEG vs RAW, which samples more detail and photographic information.

Will these prominent pinks remain when the castle is revealed in two to four months?

And what about the backside of castle (shown here during blue hour)?
