[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Rhine is one of the longest and most important rivers in Europe, at 1,320 km (820 mi), with an average discharge of more than 2,000 m3/s (71,000 cu ft/s).

The name of the Rhine comes from Old High German: Rhine, which, in turn, comes from Middle High German: Rin, from the Proto-Indo-European root *reie- ("to move, flow, run"). The Reno River in Italy shares the same etymology.

The Rhine and the Danube formed most of the northern inland frontier of the Roman Empire and, since those days, the Rhine has been a vital, navigable waterway, and carried trade and goods deep inland. It has also served as a defensive feature and has been the basis for regional and international borders. The many castles and prehistoric fortifications along the Rhine testify to its importance as a waterway. River traffic could be stopped at these locations, usually for the purpose of collecting tolls, by the state that controlled that portion of the river.

Witaj Roges,
Ja poprostu kocham takie krajobrazy. Jak fajnie zagralo Ci niebo. Wspaniala kompozycja.

Hello Adrian,this reminds me of the film 'The Sound of Music'.I think that it is the flower covered mountainside.
How lucky to be there to be able to take this picture.I could probably sit there all day taking in this view!
Tfs, regards Jean.

I like your POV for this photo. There is much to take in with this photo. But even though it is busy it is a great compositition because each part is complementary to another part of the photo. A well thought out photo.
