Black Forest, 2006
This is a drive-by shot of what I presume is a castle that we spotted one misty morning on our journey between Gengenbach and Strasbourg. The low resolution given by an early model of a digital camera does not diminish the charm of the image for me. As usual, more details can be seen when it is enlarged.
PS. Thank you to Randi for identifying this as the Ortenberg Castle located in the Kinzig Valley near Offenburg. It was first built in 1167 and destroyed in 1678; then this Neo-Gothic palace was built between 1838 and 1843 among the medieval ruins. Today it is a youth hostel.
Posted for Scenic Sunday. Many beautiful scenes to enjoy there.
