Wachau Valley

Castle - Danube River
Castle – Danube River

The Wachau Valley Gorge, in northeastern Austria, is one of the most scenic stretches of the Danube River.  Beautiful and filled with so much history, it is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

This magnificent castle-residence was one of the first we saw as we entered the gorge, just a little downstream from Melk, Austria.  The sky was thick with dense foggy clouds.

I turned the photo into an antique postcard, which emphasized (or greatly exaggerated) the overcast conditions.

Thought for the Day:  A man’s home is his castle … until the queen arrives.
