They Live in the Forest by rad-ix They Live in the Forest by rad-ix
It's a castle in the middle of a huge forest... and they are living in it!

This is the stuff of fairy tales.

(Lord Elrond sends his greetings)

Location:
Burg Heid,
Naturpark Saar-Hunsrück, Germany.

Tech Details:
Canon EOS 40D + Sigma 10-20 @ 10mm
Manfrotto 190CLB Tripod with Linhof Ballhead
Manual Exposure ISO 100: 1/6sec @ f22

The day had been looking rather stormy but just at the moment when I shot this, a patch of half-sunshine broke through and lit up the willow tree in the most amazing manner.

An earlier shot of mine (Another Way) is a picture of the side entrance through one of the surrounding walls (in case anyone was curious).

Sag mal, ist Saarhansrück in der Nähe von Saarbrücken? Das wär dann nämlich ein sehr schönes Ausflugsziel ...

Is this a HDR shot? And one more thing, does sigma lenses give you lesser quality than cannon lenses?

This is beautiful! I hope someday to have a chance at seeing beautiful places such as these. This shot has a great composition imo and the angle/perspective really lends to the great size of the gate.
