oh that statue above the gate sure looks very medieval, good color in this one...
So many of the buildings seem to have that wonderful colour to them. It also quite amazing how these buildings have lasted so well for hundreds of years, don't think we build like that these days.
I never checked this blog until today, as always you have great pictures with information.
lisi & jasp - thanks! I see, I have to do a posting on the color of the stone - it's a kind of sandstone. It's a very typical stone for this area. grainofsand - thanks for visiting and your compliments! Always appreciated! :)
I have to admit I really like the way you see things. This one jumped out at me like most of your pics do.
Interesting framing, great shot!
Nice composition and framing ! Beautiful !
rob - thank you so much for your kind words! Appreciate them very much!ash & sidney - Thanks! Will show more of the rest of the church soon...
Stupendous Nicola, thanks for sharing, love the colour blend, the Medieval feel, everything!
Good shot ! is it still being used for weddings ?
Thanks, lorraine! Yes, fotoaddict, it's still used for weddings! When I get a chance to take some inside pictures, you'll see why. It's really pretty!
Nicola, this is a beautiful picture of my home town church. I live in Up State New York now but I am from Kiedrich, in fact my Dad used to play the organ in that church for over 50 years. He died recently and I was home for his funeral. My son gave me the link to this blog and I enjoy your Rheingau Pictures very much. Thank you!
What a nice surprise - Thanks so much for your comments! My husband grew up in Kiedrich as well (Maria-Hilf-Str. - Appel). It's great to meet you here in this blog! Hope you come visiting again!
