Wellmich, Germany

Tower of Burg Maus
Burg Maus meaning Mouse Castle - construction started in 1356.
Local folklore attributes the name to the Counts of Katzenelnbogen's mocking of the Electors of Trier during the 30 years of construction,
who reportedly said that the castle was the "mouse" that would be eaten by the "cat" of Burg Katz.

Love this one,Tom! Well done!
Neil Marcus27-Jul-2015 12:48
A straight shot amplified to interest by the sun rays. The somber look and height of the castle makes it look formidable.
Ceya27-Jul-2015 12:26
There is so much beauty in this capture that it's almost exploding! The lovely flowers and bushes in the foreground, the exquisite tower, and the sunbeams like a star through the top of the tree! Great work, Tom! V

U can capture the sunbrust in everyday and everyway when there is a sunny day. In this special compositon; U have to wait ... Cross your finger for a sunny day ... Stood there and wait until the sun travel pass your pov then shot. Once u have missed it, U have to come back another day !
