Small in stature, big on substance. I didnít know much about the country before visiting, but Iím glad I took the time to find out. The cities old town is quite beautiful and charming. From my vantage point overlooking it, everything appeared as if it were a miniature model of itself!? After admiring this view for close to 10 minutes, I thought it was odd that I never once saw anyone walking the streets.
The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is a landlocked country in the Benelux bordered by Belgium, France and Germany, lying at the crossroad of Germanic and Latin cultures. It is the only Grand Duchy in the world and is the second-smallest of the European Union member states.
With a successful steel, finance and high technology industry, a strategic location at the heart of Western Europe, more natural beauty than you might expect given its size, and as one of the top three richest countries in the world, Luxembourg enjoys a very high standard of living and has prices to match!

Good morning, Jason,
))) I try to imagine how you fly over this town with camera. Tiny but it looks very cozy place. Great POV, excellent view! TFS!

was your vantage point on the roof? Wonderful perspective and very artistic colors. Looks like a watercolor. Lovely architecture of the old town, excellent presentation.
Thanks and best wishes

Beautiful street with my favourite style. Beautifully exposed, capturing the soft pastel colours and you also composed the shot superbly. Excellent high pov and lovely details.
Have a nice day and weekend,

Roof tops old stuff, Jason, about a small country, but known in many diff. businesses you mentioned.
Fine shot from above, tower or a roof - and well scanned photo (i only assumed).
Have a nice weekend,

Indeed what you writes, we see no people in the street this is almost incredible.
You found a very nice place and took these picture out of the hight with a nice result.
Excellent perspective and depth image of this cityscape.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

I think this part of town (if it is the one located in the valley below the city centre) is called the 'Grund'.
Personally I find it the most picturesque part of the Luxembourg capital.
From the cliff that separates this quarter from the center you have splendid views like this one.
The soft tones of the facades give the area a special charm. The view from the height on the river and the streets is fantastic.
Best regards, Paul

nice the panoramic view of this section of the city with the beautiful buildings to are so well presented.
I like the light and the colour management as the clarity of the image.

Tis really does look like a toy town, a really great effect. I think your point of view looking down on it like this helps that feeling. The lack of people makes a really nice effect, I always feel that a lack of people can help an image look much cleaner, as it does here. Really nicely seen and great title.
All the best

A lovely presentation of this charming town. Great POV; I particularly like how you use the road to lead the eye through and out of the picture. Very pleasant natural colours. TFS this shot and the note, which was a good read.
