Craig posted some views from the Polish and Czech towers, I also climb most of the towers to see the views and then shiver, like John I have vertigo. Here I was on the tower of the castle in Telc.
Like Cesky Krumlov, Telc is on the Unesco Heritage List. It is smaller town, nicely situated between the lakes, but the most interesting is the very long town square with the castle on one side.
Wiki: The town was founded in 13th century as a royal water fort on the crossroads of busy merchant routes between Bohemia, Moravia and Austria.
Besides the monumental 17th century Renaissance chateau with an English-style park (a rebuilding of original Gothic castle), the most significant sight is the town square, a unique complex of long urban plaza with well-conserved Renaissance and Baroque houses with high gables and arcades.

Hee, hee! It's nice to know that you get dizzy too when you go up high towers - so I am not the only one!
This is a spectacular view looking across the rooftops with those two huge towers dominating the foreground beautifully. Lovely colours, good light and exposure and stunning details and clarity.

I never made it to Telc during my one visit to the Czech Republic long ago, Malgo, but from this shot and one Tosca posted a while back, I'm determined to get there during my next visit (whenever that may be). A lovely and colorful square, but here
I like how you've made the towers the focus instead, with their distinctive domes and bright orange roof. Thanks!

Yes, it reminds me the Craig's photos. The same choice of point of view ))), Good presentation of the famous Moravian Telc.
Perfect sharpness and lovely colors of the old town, Thanks for the note.

J'aime beaucoup ce point de vue sur la ville en contre bas.Les couleurs sont vives et les maisons sont belles. Je déplore un peu que tu aies coupé les coupoles.

I love this panoramic tower view of Telc's baroque and renaissance architecture, with a forested background, dominate church towers, and all in fine resolution.
Certainly a fine place to visit for history buffs like myself.
And glad to hear you fought vertigo to create it.

I have had no idea you were in Czech. Wonderful image from Telč, A pity there is a white sky but the weather is not always kind to photographers.

haha...yes, I know this view point really well. Although it took a while to actually find the entrance to the staircase! It was so hard to find that we almost gave up and turned around.
fine POV :)
love the architecture and the colors.
nice shot :)
let me know how it goes in Prague!

Hello Malgo, beautiful roofs and roof tops with great symmetry and color enhancement!
Nice panoramic view between the buildings and superb green shades in contrast with the brick red of the roofs.
A traditional and attractive image!

Very attractive capture of the old city center. The POV is great, very well taken.
saxo042 (31802) 2013-01-29 3:25
Beautiful old buildings very far below. This is a very pleasant cityscape with attractive red roofs around. The background landscape looks also very attractive and of course the impressive towers of this church dominate the scene.

A very nice image of the lovely old town - what I like is the rows of different coloured houses the pastel colours are wonderful.
Your climb was rewarded with a nice interesting photo of the town I like it very much.

I always open your gallery page with anticipation of a new country.
I have seen quite a few pictures of Telc, but none remember from this high POV with the lovely houses lining the street & the onion domes creating a frame for the red tiled roof...
nikkitta (5886) 2013-01-31 12:58
Heeeeeee always climbing and sometimes only you went tired, or have vertigo but mostly you are awarded with interesting and different views, like the next domes here and the green vegetation at the BG
Congrats for the good work

Beautiful big twn square, with green area beyond.
I can understand you wanted to include much of the square on picture - but that came on the expense of the towers chopped on upper part. Veryy jarring factor on image.
Beautiful town seems around.
holmertz (26958) 2013-02-05 11:35
This is a very nice view of what looks like a pretty town. Those houses down below look very interesting and would deserve a closer examination. I like the tight cropping that gives the composition a good balance and also partly keeps most of the washed out sky outside the frame.

zagladam tu co chwile zeby sprawdzic czy juz wkleilas zdjecia z Pragi. Skoro nie wybralem inne zdjecie z Czech...
Niesamowite miejsce i super fajny punkt widzenia ale sa drobne problemy z naswietleniem. Pogoda nie byla najlepsza -szkoda, przez to chyba niebo troche biale. Fakt ze czarne wieze byly prawie w srodku sprawil ze aparat ustawil jasnosc glownie pod te wieze stad chyba rowniez niektore kamiennice traca troche szczegoly. Nie mniej prezentacja i tak robi wrazenie i zacheca do odwiedzin tego miasteczka,
