Photographer's Note

Here I show you one of the wonderful stained glass windows in the basilica of the Abbey Marienstatt in the German low mountain range Westerwald. It shows the resurrection of Christ. The abbey is situated nearly hidden deep in the valley of the river Nister not far away from the small city Hachenburg, about 50 kilometres south-east of Cologne.This Abbey was founded in 12th century and its basilica was built in style of early Gothik. It's choir stalls from 1290 is the oldest still used in Germany. Today there's also a library, a brewhouse with restaurant, an art trade and bookshop, a guest house and a classical grammar school. Already yesterday I tried to wish "Happy Easter" to my friends here on TE - with a photo showing two baskets filled with Easter eggs. This picture with all your esteemed comments however was deleted by moderators because ... "Your photo titled, "Happy Easter!" (photo1514943.htm) seems to violate the TrekEarth terms of service and therefore has been inactivated. The reason is:
-Studio-like, staged or posed.".
I get tired to comment this behaviour of the overseers here on TE once again ... Nevertheless - Happy Easter!
