Photographer's Note

Under the heavy clouds, a pigeon is watching over the old city of Zurich. The picture was taken in the end of the afternoon, when the light was favourable. POV is from the small garden above the Limmat river. The city cathedral seen in the centre was built in the 11 and 13C, supposedly on the site of a collegiate church founded by Charlemagne. Framing the fašade are two high towers topped with wooden cupolas covered with sheets of metal. The south tower is decorated with a huge statue of Charlemagne (the original is in the crypt).

It's been a while since I posted on TE for the last time due to some heavy commitments at work. Hopefully, I'll be able to be more present at the site in the future...
