[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The roofs of Andernach taken from a site not accessible to the public.
Parish church Maria Himmelfahrt (St. Mary's Assumption) closes the view northward down the Rhine valley through Andernach gap. Runder Turm (the round tower) with its 56 m is a part of the medieval town fortification from 1440. The French tried to blow it up in 1689, but failed.
There used to be another obtrusive object in the Andernach panorama: the high silo of a malt factory.
This sin of urban planning was torn down several years ago and has not been missed since then.

Bonjour Sven,

J'aime beaucoup cette composition.J'aime les couleurs d'automne à l'avant plan et ces châteaux aux hautes tours qui dépassent les toits des maisons avec comme arrière plan ces montagnes dans l'ombre.



Olá Erich,
realmente uma paisagem bonita aqui, assim como as contruções. As cores ficaram excelentes também, bem variadas. Belo trabalho.
Parabéns e Abraço,

A true moment of autumn.
Well done,

Hello Sven ,
What a beautiful capture of this picturesque town and its outstanding towers , with splendid autumn tonalities and a great game of light and shade .

Nice postcard with this old town skyline. I like the rising towers and the superb warm sunlight. Good catch!


Hello Sven,
The Rhine valley has so many castles along its bank, already, each is more beautiful from its neighbor's.
A very effective spot taken from, the towers appearing prominently in the middle and above town houses, while we see the hilly terrain on both sides.
Best regards,

  • Great

beautiful POV showing the marvelous old church and the other tower with curious shapes at side. I liked the light and the presence of those mountains ahead. TFS.

take care
