Capturing the Sights of a German Town & The German Countryside


I was recently back in one of my regular overseas haunts, the beautiful German town of Heppenheim. I’ve been there several times before now, and you can find some of those previous visits documented on my blog. In fact, if you search for Heppenheim in Google, mine is one of the first images that come up. The sleepy little German town is partly modern, but also partly medieval, and that is its real charm. Also, there is a castle on the overlooking hill, and for the first time, I finally made it up to it.

I’ve been there in Winter and Summer, but this is the first time in Spring, so I just have Autumn left to complete all four seasons. I wonder if I will I get a prize? It was really warm for this time of the year, and it felt like summer, but the trees were still budding, and the cherry blossoms were still blooming. After a while, it’s hard not to capture the same thing over and over, especially as it is such a small place, but the picturesque buildings and town just cry out to have their photo taken. I also managed to capture a bit more of the countryside this time, as well as some evening shots of the town square.

I was also recording a video of my trip this time. It was part of my Photo Wander video series, and you can find it on my Youtube channel. Gear wise, it was a combination of Fuji X-Pro 2 and Canon G7XII.
