You find very interesting scenes. I love it.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Michael. I feel very fortunate to be able to travel as we do!
Absolutely!!
What a lovely photo - I like your POV... showing the road off to the right, and the bridge to the left!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elizabeth. And we had this whole place to ourselves!

This is a beautiful POV. Knowing that in earlier days knights might have ridden this on horseback makes it even more special. Love the treatment, wonderful picture.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, MLMA. I'll never forget this very special woods we had to walk through to get to the castle (which you can see there in the background). We were so fortunate that day.
Indeed Ginnie. What a beautiful scene!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Richard!
Très jolie vue sur ce pont.
Ginnie Hart: I love bridges like this, Martine! Thank you.

This draw you in, Ginnie - I would enjoy walking along there
Ginnie Hart: You would have loved it, Lisl. In fact, we often think of you and Chris being with us on these jaunts.

This is wonderful. I like the ivy-covered trre trucks and that beautiful bridge.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Alan. This is a place you would LOVE!
unless there is a very very good reason the road is less travelled lol like a troll under that bridge! smile
Ginnie Hart: A troll will work! HA!
Ha ha... So turn right then?
I guess less people would go there... But I think you would probably have taken the left path.
Am I right or left, sorry I mean wrong. wink
Ginnie Hart: Actually, LC, we went up to the castle on the road under the bridge...and then came down the back way on the road to the right...and actually never crossed the bridge, because to my back in the image was a chapel that we visited, with another path down from there. I still can't believe we never at least stood on the bridge!

Joli rendu
JP
Ginnie Hart: Merci, JP.
The Rhein valley is very beautiful Ginnie, this spot looks particularly fine. I hope Astrid's computer will be well soon.
Ginnie Hart: Nothing like the Rhine valley, Chad, for sure. And yes, we both hope "they" can figure out this new virus that came out of nowhere, not caught by her supposedly very good spyware. (sigh)

You have done a likey. I am impressed by the road you chose.
Ginnie Hart: You are generous, Louis, and I thank you!
Lovely bridge and vines; certainly worth a picture.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Mary. You'd love the place.
prise de vue et traitement super!! amitiés
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, JP.
I would definitely enjoy a walk to this spot, what a magnificent bridge.
Ginnie Hart: I know you would, Brian. I'll never forget it.
sharp like a tack, Ginnie! the moss covered parapet leads nicely to the bare branches in the distance.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ayush. I can still "feel" the mood of that place!

A treatment that goes well with the old stones - Good walk Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Pat. It was a memorable walk!
A nicely desaturated picture Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Bill.
They certainly must have had money to build an access road like that! Lovely shot, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Whenever I see a road/bridge like this, Tom, I think of what I have seen in England and am in awe.
i'm sure that it was the road most travelled at one time Ginnie...
i love getting lost because that is when i get see the things that i would have missed....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: I'm quite sure many a person has traveled that road over the years, Peter!
Neat and tidy and peaceful into the bargain
Ginnie Hart: All of the above, Martin! I can still feel the place.
It looks very magical smile
Ginnie Hart: Magical is a good word for this place, Cherry!
LOVE roads less traveled...thank you for sharing the ones you have experienced! Sorry to hear about Astrid's computer. Bummer...hope it's well soon! Hugs from Cambodia!
Ginnie Hart: Of all the people I know, Robin, YOU take the road less traveled and we all get to come along for the ride when you share your adventures. Thank you for that.

Astrid's laptop is back home and up-n-running. Apparently there was NO virus but whatever happened kicked off her Norman spyware. Because it had happened before, she wasn't taking any chances. Technology! Can't live with it; can't live without it. (sigh)
