A Mystical Place

Uploaded: August 16, 2005


Neuschwanstein Castle, Germany
Taken on Kodachrome with a Canon EOS 630 in the summer of 1993. I recently scanned this slide into digital format.

I climbed up this hill only to be disappointed with the low clouds/fog. I had no idea where the castle was. But then a 30 second break in the clouds allowed me to get off two shots. This is the better of the two.

Amazing picture! It almost seems like it was taken from an airplane. What hill did you hike up to get this high? It is a beautiful picture. Great job. #4408373

Thanks April. I don't remember the hill exactly, but know that I was able to look down on both castles and the lake in the distance from this vantage point. I remember it being a bit of a slippery hike on a mildly worn trail.
