Photographer's Note

The famous Neuschwanstein castle in the very South of Bavaria. We were really lucky last week-end to have picture-perfect weather for our trip to the region known as Allgäu to visit these wonderful castles. King Ludwig II had the castle built as his residence in the 19th century and it is extremely famous among Japanese tourists to visit this castle (in fact I think 90% of the tourists there are Japanese). Although this place is really crowded it is a nice day trip and you can also go hiking in the area or swimming in the Alpsee which is very close by. Near the Neuschwanstein castle there is another nice castle called Hohenschwangau, the summer residence of Ludwig II's family when he was little. I will post a shot of Hohenschwangau within the next days.
P.S.: I used a polarizing filter to get such a deep blue sky. I just bought it recently so almost forgot to point out my newest acquisition ;)
