It's been so long...lol...here's some info I found on that area on the net tho...it would make a cool christmas card, wouldn't it!
The Rothenburg Imperial Castle (Circa 1142) Was Located In What Is Today Called The Castle Garden. The Castle Was Destroyed In The Earthquake Of 1356.
The Only Surviving Building, The Prison Was Rebuilt (Circa 1400) By Mayor Toppler Into The Chapel Of St. Blaise. The Burgtor (Circa 1356) Or Castle
Gate Leads From The Chapel And Garden Into Rothenburg Town. It Features Two Round Guard Houses (16 Century), A Mask Through Which Rothenburg Defenders
Would Pour Hot Tar On Enemies, And The Eye-Of-The-Needle Door Within A Door.
I had forgotten about the beautiful little garden right off to the side of that picture - I'll have to find some of my more clement weather pictures
of that area and see if I have any good shots of the garden area...
Those fromations are beautiful...they make such perfect photos...When I first saw the top one I thought of the little alien guys from Mars
Attacks...lol - I love the second one and how you can see the distant mountains in the background...a lot of depth perception going on in that

...let us know which picture you submit...
Actually I was surprised that I was able to submit multiple pics in most of the contests...
Here's some of the ones I submitted...I think one or two of them I havn't posted here yet, but I'll post them when I get home later...
I can still submit one more pic under "travel" in the Smithsonian contest...I'm thinking about maybe using the Rothenburg castle wall picture that
I was talking about above...
