Salut Jean Jaques,
nice photo from Linderhof. But you have made a little mistake. This is not a hut of hunting, but the hut of Hunding. Hunding is a role in the opera 'Die Walküre' (The Valkyrie) by King Ludwig's favourite composer Richard Wagner. Hunding was the husband of Sieglinde. So this is a kind of stage decoration like many others at Ludwig's castles.
Kind regards and all the best wishes for 2015

great shot of this romatic medieval city. I like those decorated and lit half-timbered houses. I have been there only two times. Last visit is 38 years ago. I think I have to go there once again.
Thanks for showing.

I like the composition with the low POV. The road paved with that fish scale pattern leding to the mausoleum. It must be a strange feeling to built one's own burial place like a pharao.

great composition. Although originally from Alaska, those Nootka lupines in the foreground are very common in Iceland. And indeed picturesque. I like also the basalt structure of the rocks. It's so typically Iceland.
