Nach meinen Besuch in Obertauern besuchte ich die Burg Mauterndorf, leider war das Wetter nicht so gut.
Die Burg Mauterndorf befindet sich im Lungau im Land Salzburg.
Schon 326 nach Christus soll an der Stelle, an der sich die heutige Burg Mauterndorf befindet, ein Kastell bestanden haben, das die einst vorüberführende Römerstraße schützte. Dieses Kastell, das während der Völkerwanderung zerstört worden sei, soll auch Amtssitz des römischen Provinzverwalters gewesen sein.
Mautendorf Castle is built on the site of an old Roman fort that dates to 326 AD or earlier. The fort protected the Roman mountain road from Teurnia to the Radstädter Tauern Pass and Iuvavum (Salzburg) and served as residence for the Roman provincial administrator. The original fort was destroyed during the Great Migration.

Excellent shadow detail with good sharpness and a nice upward pov. Good symmetry of the 2 towers and I like the angled pov. Nice graphic elements added by the dark towers against the bright almost white cloudy sky. The minimalist compo and fg curves of the road enhance the view. Tfs!

Guten Tag Wolfgang,
Even though "das Wetter nicht so gut", it adds to the photographic atmosphere of your Burg Mauterndorf image.
An impressive ancient schloss still remarkably in good condition considering the centuries past.

Great composition with this old fortress, which seems to move past, good defenses and splendid towers.
Very good use of light and good sharpness.
Have a nice day.
All the best.

Good evening Wolfgang,
From the outside this castle looks more as a guarding post fortification, with no hint about the beautiful item collection inside the yard. I am glad I took first look on the following posted picture - to appreciate what's in there.
Fine view upwards, gave extra sense of the stronghold edifice.

this is an imposing castle, its style is original with decisive straight lines and very few, tiny windows. Your composition is well balanced and effective, the upward view is dynamic and interesting. In spite of the very weak light, you achieved great sharpness, the colours are natural and very moody. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

A very imposing structure taken from a good POV. Thanks for the informative note in English, right now I am using my phone to surf the net, so it is not that easy to get to google translate.

Looks like this castle was built to withstand any siege and I think it did with it still standing proud. Good pov and dof with nice details. Well done, tfs.

Good report Wolfgang, that old castle built on a promontory, now it becomes a patrimonial and historical site of the area, no good light conditions but you managed well to obtain a pleasant shot
