Traditional shot of the “Rheinfall” by ManuelMartin1972

In my last post I already showed you a different picture of the Rheinfall, apparently a picture from an angle not often seen on the Web. But as I already told you, I also made some ordinary and traditional shots of the cascade … how could it be otherwise he he he … the light was delicious and I was there … so why not! And traditional because it has already been done to thousands or perhaps millions of times. So I present you my picture … actually the tralala million and one photo of this place 😉

This cascade is located near the town of Schaffhausen in northern Switzerland, between the municipalities of „Neuhausen am Rheinfall“ and „Laufen-Uhwiesen“ and is actually the largest plain waterfall in Europe! The building in front is the „Laufen Castle“. It is a Swiss heritage site of national significance overlooking the Rhine Falls. The first documented reference to the castle dates to the year 858 when it was the home of the Barons of Laufen, but today this castle serves as a tourist attraction. In the distance on the right you can see the „Wörth Castle“ where you can find a fine restaurant and a souvenir shop today!

I think that I will return to this place to make some other shots from different angles in Autumn, when the colours of the leaves change! And in the meantime I hope you like this picture here!

Thank you for your time and interest in my photos, your visit is most appreciated 🙂

The Cloud by ManuelMartin1972

We were just coming back from a short hike and wanted to go back to our car because a huge thunderstorm was reaching our area! Well, we came to a field and I wanted to make a shot. But there was no one single cloud in the sky, only a gloomy atmosphere was visible. And I made the shot, thinking that this picture would be nothing special. The entire family was waiting behind me. They wanted to go to the car, because the weather was changing really quickly! I heard only things like „Are you ready to go?“, „Are you finish doing this shot?“, „When you are ready, I am retired!“ and „A snail with rheumatism is faster“. I turned around, because enough was enough … and then I saw this thing in the sky! I grabbed the camera and the tripod and ran like a fool across the field. It was like after breaking a bank … I only cried „TAKE THE MONEY AND RUN!“ … no he he he „Take the kids and pick me up with the car!“ My wife only cried „Where are you going?“. „I don’t know … away from here!!!“ was my response. The composition was not very picturesque and I hoped that at the end of the field the situation would be better! After a feeling like 1000 km I reached the place where I was happy, and I made this what you see in the picture! My wife picked me up with the car …. well, the look on her face was not exactly full of love he he he! But she knows that from time to time I’m doing crazy things, and after a while everything was alright again 😉

Thank you for your time and interest in my photos, your visit is most appreciated 🙂
