Behind the Walls of Hohensalzburg Castle

Construction of this huge fortress in Salzburg Austria began nearly a thousand years ago.
I was just able to get a quick shot off before a large crowd came around the corner.

  2. Very strange architecture..and also very strange mood: the man alone in the street, the out-of-time walls...I'm sure five minutes later , the mood was totally different..But I like this one very much!

  7. wow James, what a cool perspective!
    Lovely windows and path!
    Can you believe that I lost the opportunity to visit there! :(
    It's a pity indeed...
    Only Cezar had visited this castle some years ago.

  12. The silhouette of a small back of the man enhances the depth of the building still more...
    It is a splendid perspective.
