Kaprun Castle is located in the municipality of Kaprun in the state of Salzburg, Austria. We stayed in a hotel very close to it and I was up early the next morning to go and photograph it. The castle was believed to have been built in the 12th century by the noble family of the Counts of Falkenstein.
While I was in Austria and during our travels we ventured into Germany and visited the famous Neuschwanstein Castle. It is a 19th century Romanesque Revival palace on a rugged hilltop above the village of Hohenschwangau. It was built for King Ludwig II in order for him to withdraw from public life. 7 weeks after his death in 1886, it opened to the public.
I am sure by now you must be tired of me going on and on about the wonderful photographic opportunities here in Ireland, but it just seems to never stop! Amazing landscapes and seascapes continue, beautiful lighthouses and old relics (not including my Irish friend Trevor whose birthday it was today and who arranged this amazing trip) are just a small portion of our day today. I can only continue to use the word “WOW” because I simply cannot find another word that accurately describes my feeling at each one of these locations!
I must sound like a broken record by now, but today was yet another day of amazing photography in Ireland! We stopped at an old boat wreck this morning, and although the tide was out the wreck was very interesting to photograph. An old castle, and old ruin of a school and then an interesting display of sun beams out near an island off of the coast completed our day. WOW! 🙂
