Another photo from the Danube cruise from Melk. The cruise war very pleasant, the weather was perfect, warm not too hot. There were not many people - some groups of the Austrians of the third age. I could move round the deck to find the good POV or just have some chats with other passengers. This is a castle near Melk.
Many years ago it was possible to go by small ship from Warsaw to Gdansk. When I was in elementary school, I was on such excursion with my class. It was great fun that I still remember - after more than half a century.
Most Polish people saw the film "The Cruise" about such a trip. Many citations from it became proverbs.
Sir, I am a strict mind. I like the melodies, which I have already heard. Simply. Well ... It's ... By ... reminiscence. Well, how can I like the song, which is the first time I hear it.
Sometimes I think that the same is on TE - the people like view that they have seen already.

I am the first today! )) Hi, Malgo!
Wonderful composition, just a wallpaper for a travel agency!
This view reminds me another place in Carinthia, but a summer view is more attractive indeed. Perfect DoF! Did you use a tripod?
Have a nice day!

You couldn't have a better view than this on this most attractive riverside castle. Very nicelt framed and ideally exposed. Excellent colours and clarity. Thanks for sharing.

Quel beau point de vue sur ce magnifique château avec une belle tour ainsi qu'un très beau bulbe au sommet. Il se découpe très bien sur fond de montagne et de verdure.

Your fine Danube view of the medieval castle and supporting town architecture, surrounded by dense green forest entices me to sojourn here. I would love to spend more time than river cruises, perhaps a mixture of road travel and day boat trips?
And I agree with enjoying visiting places repeatedly to stimulate the memories and senses. Perhaps this is also why metropolitan cities do the opposite for me, reminding me of my youth and lost love in Los Angeles and Hollywood. Instead, I keep returning to Nature's temples and also enjoy historical places which I should since I have a college degree in History and a minor in Biology.
Thanks for sharing,

What a superb view Malgo. A fairy tale castle with towers perfect for Rapunzel to let down her hair. The setting next to the river and backed by lush woodland is beautiful. I would enjoy such a trip.
Have a lovely weekend

Another very pretty view from your cruise. These castles are very impressive and beautiful. They would look great in any kind of weather but certainly the sunshine makes the view even better. Considering the fine sharpness I suppose that you were not exactly going on a speedboat.

What else the fantastic situation of this castle, anchored in the rock at the very edge of the river, the houses along the same population, are delicious, sensational POV with green mountain as background, everything in the picture is beautiful.
A colorful perfect very natural.
A bright image with optimum clarity.
Good job. I like it
Enjoy a good weekend, my friend.

I would agree, we do like views that we have seen, I guess there is an element of comfort in seeing them again. But this is a new view to me, and its beautiful :) As a big fan of casles, I love to see them from all around the world, and this is a perfect combination of castle and palace, and what a place to build it! The soft light brings out the colors to perfection and the sun shone in a perfect angle for you.
Really nicely done
All the best

Lubie takie budowle osadzone w nietypowych warunkach.
Super kadr i kolorystyka.
Podoba mi sie wieza.

sarebbe bello condividere i tuoi ricordi, come quelli di tutti, ognuno ha le sue avventure, i suoi ricordi e ognuno ha qualcosa di interessante da condividere, anche la più banale.
Bella questa foto e bello questo castello, sicuramente una roccaforte per evitare attacchi lungo il Danubio.

La promenade sur le Danube permet d'obtenir de beaux points de vue sur les châteaux bordant le fleuve. L'architecture de celui-ci est digne d'intérêt.

All photography conditions to be considered when taking such picture, culminate wonderfully in this one, Malgo:
The angle of light, distance from the main object, a clear day and the green forest background on the slope behind.
The castle built on a beautiful location, prominently above the river and higher than the village houses alongside.
Well collected the fabulous scene.
my cong.'s, and enjoy a nice weekend.

Yes, reminiscences are wonderful and they really do structure our minds and alter our preferences too!
This is a beautiful photograph from your Danube cruise, very well composed with the stately castle perfectly placed in the frame and with some beautiful light which makes it stand out proudly against its background of the tree covered hillside. Wonderful colours and exquisite details and sharpness.

I wouldn't mind living in this castle by the river. Although the site is not ideal, the enemy can come from above in the hills. Good pov and dof with sharp details. Well done, tfs.
The picture of the bird was taken inside Bellagio Casino Conservatory.

auch wir machten unsere Abschlussreise von der Schule auf der Donau (Linz-Wien), leider habe ich von der schönen Umgebung nicht viel gesehen, ich habe mit meinen Lehrerinnen Karten gespielt. Dein Foto ist Weltklasse, gratuliere dir!
(Krk spricht man ganz normal aus)
Viele Grüße nach Warschau

Magnifique ce château sur les rives du Danube, de très jolies nuances de verts aussi. J'ai fait cette croisière il y a quelques années, j'ai beaucoup aimé.
mcmtanyel (14543) 2014-07-20 21:57
I agree, the scenery is beautiful. You placed the castle right at the sweet spot, drawing attention to its magnificent architecture. The clearing in the forest is noteworthy, too.
