This image of the picnic setup was taken on the marsh in front of Château de L'Islette and the Indre River. Once you're on the grounds, use the bridge to cross over the marsh (make sure to take your picnic supplies with you) and then reference the GPS coordinates to see where I was when I took my shot of the château.
