Gertelbach Waterfalls

Just before the end of the year I decided to do a short day trip to the northern Black Forest. I started really early in the morning to beat the other tourists and have the waterfalls to myself. Since I arrived around 7:30 AM I had to start my hiking tour in the dark. Since the weather wasn’t good I had to wait quite a time before it got bright enough to take pictures. Without any other tourist around I was able to spend a lot of time finding the right composition. Only on my way back to the car I met a couple of other hikers climbing the Gertelback Waterfalls.

The House of Hohenzollern

The House of Hohenzollern, also called Castle Hohenzollern is a tourist attraction nearby Tuebigen in South Germany. The Castle is located on top of a small mountain and surrounded by thick wood. I was visiting the castle in December last year and wanted to capture the castle wrapped in ice and snow. Unfortunately December last year turned out to be a warm and quite sunny month. But still I was able to take a quite nice picture of this beautiful German Castle. I highly recommend to visit this place and take a guided tour through the castle when you are traveling in Germany.
