100

According to the files in the monochromia folder on my disk, this is my 100th post here on Monochromia. It’s amazing how quickly the time has passed. I’m still glad to be a part of this great community of talented photographers and lovers of monochrome images.

So, I looked for a very special image to celebrate this anniversary.

While preparing this post, we’re having a quite hot summer day. It’s not so hot as it was earlier this week, but it’s still over 33°C (91°F). I really love these hot days of the year, just because we only have so few of them. Sitting outside with friends ’till midnight only wearing a t-shirt and shorts is sooo good.

The image above is taken in very similar conditions. But, it’s taken in Brittany, France against the sun to create this cut-out look.

… I was in the German state of Rheinland-Pfalz with some friends for an extended weekend. While nearby, we made a trip to the castle Burg Eltz. This construction of this iconic castle was started back in the 12th century. Since then, it was never conquered or destroyed.

As expected, you can find the castle on top of a hill. But, this hill is surrounded by many other hills which are even higher. So, you can’t see it from a distance and you can’t oversee the surrounding area. This is very different from other castles.
