This castle is arguably the most beautiful castle ever built.I also agree that it is.It inspired Walt Disney as well.Although the weather was not favourable for photography,I think the clouds made an interesting impact on the shot.
Neuschwanstein Castle (German: Schloss Neuschwanstein, pronounced [nɔʏˈʃvaːnʃtaɪn], English: New Swanstone Castle) is a nineteenth-century Romanesque Revival palace on a rugged hill above the village of Hohenschwangau near Füssen in southwest Bavaria, Germany. The palace was commissioned by Ludwig II of Bavaria as a retreat and as a homage to Richard Wagner. Ludwig paid for the palace out of his personal fortune and by means of extensive borrowing, rather than Bavarian public funds.
The palace was intended as a personal refuge for the reclusive king, but it was opened to the paying public immediately after his death in 1886. Since then more than 60 million people have visited Neuschwanstein Castle. More than 1.3 million people visit annually, with as many as 6,000 per day in the summer. The palace has appeared prominently in several movies and was the inspiration for Disneyland's Sleeping Beauty Castle and later, similar structures.

This is a fine capture of this castle and I agree that the clouds add a certain magic and mystique to the scene. The snow and misty clouds make this a very cold image and I think it's so well suited to this unique place. Very nicely done.

A great job working through the difficult lighting conditions. The viewer gets a good sense of the cold and stillness of the dead of winter. Excellent sharpness, with the castle details well defined despite the distance from your camera.

You have made the castle stand out well against the dark cliff behind. The cloud gives some extra atmosphere to the photo. The light coating of snow is a bonus too.

Merveilleux château tel un conte de fée, joliment entourer de foret dans des teintes de saison avec la brume en prime
