Week 27 – The Saale

After a short weekend break in the south of the country, this week’s post is centred around the river Saale.

As we have now reached halfway on the photographic journey through the year 2011, this week’s entry is interactive. All those entering the poll (see below) have the chance to become the lucky winner of a once in a lifetime prize.

So here goes:

The first two were taken directly on the banks of the Saale River in Hirschberg (Thuringia). This Bench is the longest to be cut from one log (according to the Guinness Book of Records), and seats approximately 97 people depending on which nationality you are.

The third picture was shot in Burgk (Thüringen) and shows the new tower (42 metres) with views over the river Saale, the Castle and the surrounding landscapes.

  1. Interesting subjects. Like the contrast in the B/W shot of the bench but the lighting of the wood on the tower against the menacing clouds in the background sealed it for me.
