Castle Gutenfels
9-Jun-2015 T.A.LeRoy

Castle Gutenfels

Kaub, Germany

Gutenfels Castle was built in 1220. It was used with the toll castle, Pfalzgrafenstein in the middle of the Rhein
and the fortified town of Kaub on the far side, to provide an impenetrable toll zone for the Holy Roman Emperor
until Prussia purchased the area (1866) and ended this toll in 1867.
The castle is part of the Rhine Gorge, a UNESCO World Heritage Site added in 2002.

Another sensational castle image! I love the overall foreboding mood enhanced so well by the mono processing. The composition is inspired. ~VVV~

A compelling view of the castle on the hill. Enough space on the steep slope for a vineyard. V

Photo looks almost 3-d. Very nice. Would quite like to see a colour version too. :-)

I think using the monochrome really gives this an old and dramatic look. This really has a wonderful tonal range and composition. Voted
