Following on from my previous upload 'Schloss Neuschwanstein', here's a few images from around the village of Hohenschwangau that the castle overlooks. V1 shows one of the horse-drawn carriages (which save the old legs!) to transport you from the village up the steep climb to the castle. V3 is outside the Museum der Bayerischen Könige (Museum of the Bavarian Kings) at the bottom end of the village. Just off to the right of the Museum is the large lake of Alpsee Hohenschwangau (V4).
Someone on my previous upload (not one of my followers!) suggested I should 'try replacing the sky, it makes an amazing difference' and I should 'give it a try'. Obviously not seen my earlier upload 'Whitby Sunset' which involved replacing the sky! I've 'given it try' several times over the years, and yes I could have, but certainly not with a blue sky, and dark rain clouds wouldn’t have looked right either, so left as was seen, which I think conveys the mood of the misty weather that day. So, these have also been left 'as was seen'.

Nice set Trev, the processing suits the cold flat light, as does the understated colour.

New sky would not have improved yesterday's nor today' images, Trev. The main subject stands out more than enough for us to ignore the flat sky - and indeed, it does give an impression of just how misty the conditions were.

Lovely and natural Trev, and that's how these should be. A fine set of "wintery" images.

It looks to have been a wonderful, if chilly, trip, and the architecture is glorious. Another great series.
