Picture is showing the hell's port in Maastricht with a very fine old Citroen used that day as a wedding taxi.
The Helpoort is Holland's oldest surviving town gate and was built almost 800 years ago, along with a lengthy stretch of city wall. Further fortifications were added during the 15th century and today, the Helpoort is home to an interesting collection of local history and was once actually used as a prison.

Hello Jean Claude, very nice image here. It seems like a very nice place to have a wedding. I love the small balcony up the tower. Good sharpness.

Attractive view of the gothic Helpoort, the two immense towers with conical tops, and the construction elements of rough textured rocks all blend into a fine historical image, and a bonus with the classical Citroen still motoring.
Thanks for sharing,

This is lovely and the charming ye olde 'feel' which seems to carry the sense of great age. The lighting, vivid details of the stunning fortification & the classic veh, colour and your subtle processing make this a very special image for the wedding couple. I am sure the rustic walls seem to have so many hidden memories to tell too. I am missing the horse carriages! Great capture, TFS

That old town gate is huge! And your vertical framing gives good appreciation to it. And the old Citroen looks great and suits well for wedding celebrations! Place where it is parked is just perfect for this composition.
