I have not posted anything in the past two weeks because we took a trip to tour Bavaria, Germany, Lucerne, Switzerland and Innsbruck and Salzburg, Austria. I began to sort out some pictures I took once we got home. Here are the pictures of castles on the Rhine River when we started our tour from Mainz with four hours of river cruise toward Heidelberg. It was a beautiful section of the River for viewing many castles on the hill tops and on the river edge.
Gorgeous photos. I used to live in Germany; it’s a very photogenic country!
Impressive castles and some I even know. Most of the time castle are close to rivers. Nice shots Stephen.
Thank you! It was an amzing cruise, it surely kept me busy with my camera1
Lovely tours and the castles. It´s one of my favourite thing to do when exploring the Rhine, Moselle and Danube. So many Castles, almost all the same and so many rich stories about every ruins.
Thank you for visiting my blog. Yes, it is a beautiful section of Rhine River. I enjoyed the view very much – was busy with my camera!
We are taking a Rhine River cruise. I am planning on photographing with a Canon EOS and the Sigma 150-600 zoom lens. Any tips on shooting the sights along the Rhine? We are cruising from Amsterdam to Basel over 7 days.
We took the cruise tour from Amsterdam to Nuremberg and enjoyed a lot! Sounds like you are well equipped with the camera and lens. I used Olympus E-M1 Mark 2 with 70-300 mm (equivalent to 140-600 mm) and worked very well. I’ll suggest go to the top deck for the view and photo opportunities. I saw people holding “fall out map showing all castles on the River” – it’s handy to have. I did print out the section of the river from internet before trip. Have fun and enjoy!
