Standing on a rocky outcrop high over the river Rhine we are overlooking the river and the city of Basel in the late afternoon light of a cold January day. While we are standing in Germany here, the city in its total here is on Swiss soil, while in the background the Voges mountain range marks the end of the alsacian plain in France.
I haven't been to active here on TE lately.
A new Job and and my autistic son loosing his job have kept me busy for the past couple of month. But I do hope to be back more often again, I have missed all your great pictures from all around the world.

I am glad to see you post again, and congratulations on the new job! Sorry to hear your son has lost his.
This is a wonderful image, a city I do not know well, but know a little better now thanks to your post here! The colors of the sky make this magical, and more so that they are reflected in the river. A beautiful urban landscape with amazing natural colors. Thanks as always

Three countries on one picture. A location that you will not find very quickly.
Very beautiful colours in the sky and they get reflected well in the Rhine.
Best regards, Paul

Lovely colours in the clouds and water reflections. The curve of the river leads the viewer's eye towards the impressive sunset sky.
I hope you become less busy soon and have more time for photography and travel!

This is a lovely low light shot - the magic of sunset taken from the best view point. It works superbly well, an endlessly engaging wide view image with fabulous sky. Fascinating effects of the exposure and a wonderful balance, but I love the busting sky, perhaps toning down bit more on the top frame will be just right, imho. Great capture, congrats and tfs

Great to see your pictures of course, but life itself is always more important then spending time here. I'm happy to see it hasn't kept you from producing more pleasing and interesting photos though. :)
I would never have guessed this to be Basel, a first time view for me. I've only spent two days in the city, which was just that...in the city. Certainly offers up an entirely new look, and one with quite a bit of atmosphere from the soft golden sunlight. There doesn't appear to be any one thing that stands out, but the whole of the imagery comes together quite nicely. Sharp and detailed from corner to corner, a good sense of depth. Thanks for sharing this vantage point. Hope all is going well, or at least better now. Good to have you around whenever possible! Take care my friend.

Magnifique point de vue sur ce grand fleuve voyageur puisqu'il traverse pas de 6 pays. La Suisse et l'Allemagne semblent ne faire qu'un sur cette image, tant les différences sont imperceptibles. Les couleurs pastel du ciel sont très belles, et la lumière de fin de journée donne de jolies teintes douces au paysage. Très bonne netteté et profondeur d'image.

Hello Daniel - I hope thing are settling down on the work front for both you and your son. I wondered where you has gone to and it's nice to have you back again. You found a super high vantage point for this shot. The river looks fantastic with the colours of the reflected sky and makes a wonderful feature here as it winds its way through the city. Nicely done! Take care and warm regards Rosemary

Welcome back! I hope things are a little more under control in your life. Your comeback photo is taken from a lovely vantage point with golden skies and reflections, giving a very tranquil impression of this metropolitan area.

Beautiful and pleasant-looking photograph!
Sharpness, management of light, colors, horizontal format, chosen high pov and composition are all excellent!
TFS - congrats,

Très belle image paisible de Bâle en soirée.
Comme toi, je n'ai pas été très actif ces derniers temps. Je vais essayer de me rattraper.
