[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A wide angled view of the old Saxon Church in Rasnov. If you are travelling from Brasov to Bran or vice versa, Rasnov is well worth the detour to see the fort without the huge crowds. "In German the name of the town is "Rosenau", which means rose meadow."

The Evangelical protestant church with the clock dates from the 14th century.

Nice colors in your scene. There are some good changes since your visit there. Nice postcard.


Bonjour, cher Chris,
C'est toujours intéressant de découvrir l'Europe et les pays peu connus (souvent commentés ; rarement présentés tels qu'ils sont) !
Une vue bien faite et instructive;

Dobar dan.
Interesantan i lep pogled, dobar tekst ...
Lepo pokazano, dobar kontrast, lepe boje, lepo uhvacen trenutak sa svetlom koje je naglasilo lepotu arhitekture.
Lepo mesto i arhitektura, lep toranj sa satom.
Lepo drvo i stara Crkva.
Zelim vam, lepo popodne, sve najbolje za vikend, srecno.

Good day.
Interesting and beautiful view, good text ...
Beautifully shown, good contrast, nice colors, beautifully captured moment with light that emphasized the beauty of architecture.
Nice place and architecture, beautiful clock tower.
Nice tree and old church.
I wish you, good afternoon, all the best for the weekend, good luck.

Hello Chris ,
Splendid architecture . Great contrast of the orange roofs and foliage in the perfect blue sky .

Hello Chris,
I think I stopped for an hour in Rasnov, but the castle was closed and I must have missed this church for some reason I don't remember. But I saw several other beautiful fortified churches closer to Sighisoara. This is a nice view and the warm light and saturated colours make the greatest impression.
Did you see my reply to your comments?

Hello Chris,

Not only did you find a very attractive building for your photograph, you also had a lovely bright day to enhance the colours. Though it was taken in November, the light is bright and there are are still plenty of leaves on the tree.
Though you avoided the crowds, there were still a few folks to animate and scale your shot.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)

Bonjour Chris,

Les maisons cadrent bien l'église. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails de l'église. La lumière rehausse la beauté des couleurs. Bonne journée.


Blue sky as an excellent backdrop to the colors of the tower and buildings, Chris.
The tree "matching" with its autumn golden leaves to the roof-tops tiles.

Good night,

Hello Chris, I do not remember if I was in Rasnov or not. I saw so many places in Romania. Nice simple protestant church. beautiful tree in the colour of the church's roof.

Bonjour Chris,

Un très beau petit village. Probablement que tout le monde se connait et que tout est construit autour de l'église qui trône comme une reine en son centre. Magnifique lumière.



Hi Chris
Belle architecture, l'arbre se mélange aux couleur du toit de l'église, le tout bien ressorti du fond bleu, très jolie

Hello Chris,
Oh my, it is pretty old for an evangelical church. It must have started its life as a Catholic church. I like the vivid colors. 👍👍
