I hope that after viewing this photo nobody will blame me for not showing traditional, typical Black Forest photos.
Okay, here is one. Typical wooden Black Forest house located deep in forest away from civilization, easy accessible only during spring, summer or autumn on narrow natural path (with very difficult access during winter).
This type of can be found mainly in the central and southern parts of the Black Forest. It is characterised externally by a long half-hipped roof (roof where all sides slope downwards to the walls) that descends almost to the height of the ground floor. This type of dwelling is suited to the conditions of the Black Forest hillside locations with high levels of snowfall and heavy wind loading.
The great roof, with its long overhangs, sweeps right down to the ground floor at the sides, shading the walls of the house in summer whilst allowing the sun, now much lower in the sky, to warm the walls in winter. The roof is covered with wooden shingles (actually individual overlapping wooden tiles).
Roof shingles are a very common roofing material in Black Forest, but deteriorate faster and need to repel more water than wall shingles.

nice view of a typical forest house hidden
into the high green trees
Is this the Paradise?
I love those used classical colors
and the greatest sharpness and lightness
it seems like a scene from a movie film
have a nice weekend

Hello Miro, Nice shingle house. There should be the Cookoo clock somewhere and of course Schwarzwalder Kirschtorte served nearby. Nice scene in the deep forest.

I expect to see Hansel and Gretel come running down the track very shortly:-) A fine composition of this rather delightful house in a forest clearing. I like the point of view very much. Ideally exposed with very good colours and clarity. Thanks for sharing.

thanks for your note, I would wonder why the roof would be like this! A berry nice scene, and the house seeks almost to be hiding from you in the scene giving it an even stronger forest feel. Like a shot from a fairytale, I half expect to find Hansel and Gretel hiding somewhere!
Have a great weekend

Excellent composition and colors.
I like it!

A wonderful composition of this place so famous love the POV, with textures in the foreground, these tree trunks ideal as the house surrounded by lush woodland, seems a distinctive style of construction in the area, in which its elements seem to me the wood, it's a delicious sight.
Good management of the brightness and sharpness.
I wish you a good start to the week.

The trees are framing well the house. The point of view is showing the details and the colors of the house. The good luminosity is giving nice tints to the colors. Have a nice day.

Charmante demeure avec toutes cette végétation qui l'entoure, c'est beau, frais, accueillant, bien présenter

This photo reminds me some fairy tale topics. I'd like to note a clever non-central composition, fine details and perfect DoF.
Have a nice day!

Nice view of this old traditional wooden house. Its architecture fits well with its forestal environment. Amazing green tones.
