Greetings, Peter!

This is delightful in so many ways.

Not to seem naive, but I had no idea that these types of castles actually have grass and trees growing on them like this. It's like a little courtyard way up in the sky. How perfectly beautiful. You see, we have nothing that even comes close to this over here.

I like how the gentlemen dressed in suits are all looking up towards the man in the sky. It looks like an unexpected moment, and how wonderful that you captured it so well.

It's an exciting shot with so much to look at, high and low, far and wide. Extremely entertaining.

Thank you so much for sharing, and I hope all is well in your world.

Very best regards,

Mary Alice

What a nice morning surprise, MaryAlice to find such a delightful comment from you. There are some unusual things combined in this picture. These ruins are not, as in the most cases, from the Middle Ages. There were such ruins in this place, but they were extended to a mighty fortress in the beginning of 18th century. Most of the buildings were destroyed later, but the towers and some walls remained. The well dressed men belonged to a wedding which was celebrated here on the Hohenneuffen. And the glider was a very daring one who tried to come as close as possible to this ruins (I´d guesss he was not more than 3 meters away from the tree this very moment..). The starting point for the gliders is a few hundred meters apart from the castle. I´ve taken a lot of pictures there, of some dungeons in the castle, of the strating gliders etc... But to post them all would in my opinon exceed the limit of what is not boring...

So- a lot of explainations, but most of all I´m glad you like my picture...

Have a nice day, I hope all is well in your world, too.

Warm regards, Peter

All is well in my world, and thank you very much, Peter! =)

I did so enjoy reading all about this photograph. It is all very interesting and exciting to me.

A wedding there? Outstanding. I bet that was beautiful.

You managed to capture it all very well and make a photograph that really holds the viewers attention and leaves one searching for more details in even the unexpected places.

I think it should be made into a giant puzzle! Wouldn't that be neat?

Wishing you a most excellent kind of day,

Mary Alice

Thank you once again, MaryAlice, the wedding was really beautiful. I can really recommend this place in case there should be interest at any time... ;-)) I watched the professional photographers and the bridal pair for a while finding inspiration for great compositions with tunnels, dungeons and beautiful places under the trees with this outstanding view from the ruins...

Greetings, Peter
