Through Metamorphic Rocks by rad-ix Through Metamorphic Rocks by rad-ix
Another mystery in the forest.

Rumor has it that these are the remains of an ancient castle. The massive moss covered stone blocks are strewn over a huge area, looking like there must have been many enormous buildings. The whole site sits upon high hills or mounds that are obviously even more ancient. On the tops of these hills are standing stones and stone circles dating from Celtic times. With so much moss everywhere it looks more like a moss garden!


Location:
Part of the Nature Reserve of the Naturpark Saar-Hunsrück ...on the Felsenweg near Scheiden.
49.5°N 6.7°E


Tools:
Canon EOS 40D + Sigma 10-20 @ 10mm

What an amazing place to live in, where rocks are made into homes and then back into rocks again. Beautiful shot.

Saarland muss wirklich schön sein :o hab mir bereits vorgenommen den spreewald mal zu erkunden, kannst du mir evtl ein paar weitere nennenswerte "naturattraktionen" dieser art nennen welche du selbst als interresant beschreiben würdest ?
