View from Castle Eltz

I took this photo in 2010 on my visit (in the company of the lovely Robin) to Castle Eltz in Germany. Castle Eltz is one of the few castles of central Europe that was never destroyed in one war or another--and which is still in the founding family's possession. The current owner, Dr. Karl Graf zu Eltz (whom we met briefly while there) is the thirty-third generation of his family (since at least 1157) to call the castle home (though he lives most of the time in Frankfurt).

I took this shot from a walkway outside the castle, I think. I like its romance. Wordsworth could have written a poem about this poor, neglected part of the castle grounds.
