In 1407 a cemetery was built on a high bank of the Spree, in its area began the construction of the St. Nicholas (Nikolai)church, but it was never completed. Already in 1441 the church burned down, and its reconstruction lasted until 1601. The church was sadly destroyed during the Thirty Years' War, during the siege of Bautzen by Swedes in 1620. It has never been rebuilt and was left as a ruin. Today, this area is used as a cemetery, and the graves are located even inside the ruins.

vivid colors taken from a book with
fairy tales I love the deep green

atmosphere and the red rood adding

non avevo mai visto un luogo come questo e per me è una bella condivisione.
Bella anche la tua composizione, con la cappella decentrata a destra per dare spazio al resto.

Hello Ryszard ,
A cemetery could be very photogenic ! Beautiful composition with attractive light and sky .
A little too much saturation , especially in the red ? I like the vivd colors , too , and I've often the same problem .

Une petite chapelle entourée de son cimetière bien fleuri qui respire le grand calme.
Amitiés et bonne journée.

Thank you very much for your interesting note, you can see that war never brings happiness.
Pleasant place notwithstanding a cemetery and church as subject.
Excellent composition, nice presentation, also pleasant of colours.
Very well done, TFS.

this little cemetery looks charming and so colourful too. Beautifully controlled exposure makes all the detailing so clear and captures the atmosphere so perfectly. Looks wonderful!

L'on peut dire que ce cimetière est plein de charme, sa chapelle et ces pierres tombales joliment fleuri, j'aime les chemins de pierres, le jeu ombre et des merveilleuses couleurs

Sounds like this church had a very rough and sad history. But at least it is used for something. Nicely captured with good details and wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.
