Weekly Photo Challenge: Dense

wpc_dense_nmp

If you look close (or maybe not so closely) at the top of the very dense forest, you can see the tower of the Ehrenberg Castle ruin. Below is a picture of the full castle, so you can tell just how dense the forest is when looking at it from the foot of the hill where it dwells.

This picture looks up at the steel rope bridge that connects the ruins of Castle Ehrenberg with the fortress ruins on the hill across the highway.

Here’s a picture of what the bridge looks like when you’re on it.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Dark Green

dark_green_nmp

“The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep.
And miles to go before I sleep.
And miles to go before I sleep.”
— “Stopping by a wood on a snowy evening” by Robert Frost

Dark, dark green is my favorite color. It has been since I can remember. The deeper and darker the better. I love walking through woods and forests. I love the old, decrepit pine trees that shade the east side of our house. I love the smell of wet trees (is that weird?). When plants begin to grow, no matter what they will turn into, the first bit that pops up out of the ground is green. To me, green is the color of life.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE ONE OR TWO OR MORE PHOTOS FEATURING THE COLOR GREEN.

Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Each week, I’ll come up with a theme and post a photo that I think fits. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Thursday, when the next photo theme will be announced.
  2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “A Photo a Week Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.
  3. Come back here and post a link to your image in the comments for this challenge.
  4. Follow nancy merrill photography so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements.

A Photo a Week Challenge: Ruins

ruins_nmp

On a hill high above the town of Reutte, Austria is the ruined castle Ehrenberg. The hike up to the castle and the 400 meter steel rope bridge to the hill across the highway is an easy climb that takes 20-30 minutes, depending on your abilities and current physical conditioning. The castle is a wonderful piece of history and ruins that is fun to explore and photograph. This photo was taken from the other hillside. (For more pictures of the hike, castle, and rope bridge, see Weekly Photo Challenge: Quest and Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Walks.)

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO OF THINGS AND PLACES THAT HAVE SEEN BETTER DAYS.
