I was there a few years ago. What an amazing place. The mountain setting is wonderful. I love this photo of it and the way it looks like something out of a dream. A dark, mysterious dream! Most photos of Neuschwanstein focus on the beauty of the castle. While this shows the castle's fairytale beauty, the haze and amount of darkness above the castle make it appear dark and mysterious. Almost as though if you looked away and back again it might disappear. Good work to show something that has been photographed thousands of times in a unique and interesting way.

I used to live in Germany and I remember going to this castle. Very beautiful shot <3

Awesome shot!!!!! :clap: So very true of the castle, for King Ludwig II lived in his own secret hideaway within these walls ;) He nearly bankrupted Germany building that thing.

Beautifully framed and composed. I have always loved this castle and all the pics I can find of it. The stormy clouds above the castle bring great drama to the scene.

Very well done.

Ich bin schon dort gewesen, vor etwa drei Jahren und es ist wirklich ein Märchenschloss. Das war eigentlich auch die Idee, die Ludwig, der König von Bayern, für das Schloss hatte - die Opern Wagners mit den Legenden, die ihre Grung sind, noch einmal zu beleben, wie in seiner Kindheit. Das musst du aber bestimmt schon wissen. :) Tja, meine Hauptidee - das ist das klassische Foto von dem Schloss - Blick von der Marienbrücke - habe ich selbst gemacht, aber an einem sonnigen Tag im Sommer. Es war etwa 12:00 Uhr, die Sonne direkt über dem Schloss - tragisch :ashamed: Dein Foto erinnert mich an die Sogmund-Legende und wiedergibt die Stimmung der Wagners Musik auf eine fabelchafte weise. Ich beneide dich ein wenig ;)

Hettar7 Featured By Owner Nov 12, 2007
the fogginess covering the castle gives it a fairytale feel. very romantic. it makes me want to see it in person.
artahh Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2007

It's a really breathtaking place and the nature around it is beuatiful.
Standing on that bridge was a bit crepy though.hah
But I love this shot.

That's definitely one of the more interesting shots I've seen of Neuschwanstein. I almost didn't recognize it!

Excellent shot. The fog and clouds almost make it seem unreall.

I love this shot of Neuschwanstein! I live in Ohio, but one of my biggest dreams is to go and see this castle (Germany, right?) It's breath takingly beautiful! I am constantly in awe of your photos. I'm taking a photo class right now, maybe someday I can get as good as you!

is it a manipulated photo??
SovereignAxe Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2006  Professional Photographer
Not only have a been to this castle, but I'm also commenting because I love the picture. The fog and the sky look so erie-it's different from all the other Neuschwanstein pics I've seen. Is all of that real or did you add it in editing?

When I went to Germany we stayed in this little farm house across from the lake and we could see the castle wayyyy off in the distance. It was surreal to actually be there-so awesome.
sketcherjak Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2005
OOoo! I've been there! You've captured it beautifuly!

Well, I haven't been there myself, so you must forgive me my comment ;) I've seen a plenty of photos taken in Neuschwanstein, but this one is at least one of the best.. Just little disadvantge is this brigther part of landscape beside the castle... but it's only my twisted opinion ;)
demonicmonkies Featured By Owner May 14, 2005
What a beautiful,beautiful castle.And possibly,an even more beautiful photograph of it! I would love to be there. Exactly where is it?
