Traditional shot of the „Rheinfall"

In my last post I already showed you a different picture of the Rheinfall, apparently a picture from an angle not often seen on the Web. But as I already told you, I also made some ordinary and traditional shots of the cascade … how could it be otherwise he he he … the light was delicious and I was there … so why not! And traditional because it has already been done to thousands or perhaps millions of times. So I present you my picture … actually the tralala million and one photo of this place ;-)

This cascade is located near the town of Schaffhausen in northern Switzerland, between the municipalities of „Neuhausen am Rheinfall“ and „Laufen-Uhwiesen“ and is actually the largest plain waterfall in Europe! The building in front is the „Laufen Castle“. It is a Swiss heritage site of national significance overlooking the Rhine Falls. The first documented reference to the castle dates to the year 858 when it was the home of the Barons of Laufen, but today this castle serves as a tourist attraction. In the distance on the right you can see the „Wörth Castle“ where you can find a fine restaurant and a souvenir shop today!

I think that I will return to this place to make some other shots from different angles in Autumn, when the colours of the leaves change! And in the meantime I hope you like this picture here!
