Fotoeins Friday: slice of Heidelberg along the Neckar

I often find myself in my former hometown of Heidelberg, especially if I’m in the country during the final quarter of the year. When the sun is out, there’s a slight breeze blowing down the Neckar river, a sensation complementing the sight of autumn’s colours from the thick patchwork of dying leaves on trees and illuminated stately mansions lining the river. The photo above shows the view east from the Alte Brücke (Old Bridge); in the distance are the Schleuse (locks) controlling boat traffic up and down the Neckar river.

Disclosure: No Connection, Unpaid, My Own Opinions. I have not received money for writing this content and I have no material connection to the city of Heidelberg. Access to public transport was kindly provided by Heidelberg Marketing and the RNV (Rhein-Neckar-Verkehr) regional transport authority. I made the photo above in Heidelberg, Germany, on 25 November 2014 with the Canon 6D camera, 24-105 glass, and the following settings: 1/250-sec, f/14, ISO400, and 24mm focal length.

      Thanks! On many winter mornings, even in bright sunshine, the foot-traffic on Heidelberg’s Old Bridge can become quiet. It’s almost like having the entire bridge and the entire scene to yourself. Thanks for reading and for your comment!

    I have been twice to Heidelberg about 10 years ago. Though it was only a short trip without any sightseeing it was very interesting that historical buildings where present everywhere. The whole city (at least where I was/ driving through) had a very nice charme 🙂

      Clearly, you must return south to Baden-Württemberg and to reacquaint yourself with Heidelberg! 🙂 Thanks for reading and for your comment!
