Beautiful light in this shot Maria! The contrast between the dark threatening clouds and the sunlit castle is fabulous! Nicely captured! ;-)

@franz: Thanks Franz,
Yes, the setting is nice indeed, and it's not far from many of the places in South Tyrol. I passed by this castle 3 years in a row, since it's just off the main street that I prefer to drive to get to that area.

i, too, have passed by this castle several times and have admired it from afar, but i haven't visited yet.
have you ever driven through lesachtal? that's the narrow valley leading from east tyrol to carinthia, but south of the main road. if not, do it next time ... the drive is VERY nice indeed !

@franz: No, I didn't...how dare you keep such secrets away from me up till now???? lol
Instantly added to my list! Thank you
I never take freeways (if possible), and I avoid motorways as well (unless I must), so I can get to drive on all the tiny rustic roads, through tiny rustic villages for the most picturesque views and sites.
I can barely wait for my next vacation! :)
Interesting photo. The sky is so dark and ominous, yet the castle looks we'll lighted.

Beautiful environment, perfectly composed image with great DOF and sharpness ! Great contrast between those beilliant colors on foreground and the stormy atmosphere on background.

@Josep: Thanks Josep!
This is so beautiful. This reminds me of a castle Reinhard took us to on our way from the Großglockner to Millstatt. How I wish we could return for another visit.

@Judy aka L@dybug: Just when I thought I'd add another castle to my list, it seems I cannot locate this Reinhard castle that you are referring too :((((
Thanks Judy, and I hope you could return for another visit some day...
wonderful composition and interesting tonal contrast between foreground and dark clouds!
