Carcassonne Revisited

Back from my travels…
I was on holiday in Southern France and had the opportunity to visit Carcassonne again (some HDR work here, too).
Those who are new to this blog can view some pictures from my 2009 visit here.
I am going to post more impressions (also from other places) in the next weeks, so stay tuned.
As always, please click on pictures to enlarge.

Rothenburg Holiday Impressions

Rothenburg 1
(Market Square captured with fisheye lens)

At the beginning of this winter holiday season I’d like to share with you some impressions of the beautiful medieval town Rothenburg ob der Tauber (Germany).
Those people who’ve been there know that you can easily take a thousand pictures on a single day and still have the feeling you missed a lot…
Please consider this series here as a tiny glimpse of the treasures this town holds.
BTW: If you think there is something wrong with your eyes – don’t be worried, as I used my Fisheye lens for several pictures. There are also some HDR photos here.
As always please click on the pictures to enlarge them – highly recommended!

I wish all my followers happy, peaceful holidays!

Käthe Wohlfahrt house (a Christmas theme store that celebrates this season the entire year!)
 

Rothenburg 9
Special decoration houses – handmade and thus pretty pricey (but beautiful as you can see)

Hope you enjoyed this series. As I visit this town quite often you will see more from it in the future.
Take care!

I originally wanted to post another photo today, but I made up my mind…
This one here is an HDR picture of the entrance to the beautiful historic center of Carcassonne (France).
Some might know it from my flickr page or HDR Spotting, but I decided it deserves a place on my blog as well.
