Palace and Monastery Corvey - World Heritage - 5 pictures

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

The place is near the river Weser next to the city of Höxter. Monastery Corvey and palace

 

Since last year the list of our World Culture Heritage has one item more. This unique unit of palace and monastery at the river Weser represents the power of a rich culture.

There is a palace once being the centre of a ruling family that was and still is directly bound and obliged to welfare of the region. There is the monastery on the other hand, a place from where christiansation started and found its strong counterpart in well organized people from the region. The church is an impressive building from the 9th century . The facade is massive simple gothic style and bears like a shell the relicts of the original parts from the 9th century. Tee interior itself is baroque and so this whole mixture makes the strong impact and bears a long history.

Stuart,

many thanks!

 

Dee,

that's good that it is interesting for you, thank you!

 

John,

Thank you! Mentioning the architecture one can say that it is a complex where every century took its own influence. It is indded a difficult site because you cannot get a full view in one frame.

 

Mike,

yes, yes, when I took the shot I thought the same, just as if from those children books where there is also a symmetry in the chaos. Thank you so much.

      Feeling some pressure i had to go for some photos early this morning.....
      Buzzer at 4:30, a cup of coffee  (okay, double double espresso...),  eating while driving and going to the Harz mountains.  Arriving the parking area i was the only one there.... (hours later the road was blocked as there was no more free parking place when i returned). Armed with rucksack, tripod and headtorch i went up to the hills. 
      And here are the results.

      At the suggestion of dear forum member David (wda) I am showing this picture from the Spreewald, a region in southern Brandenburg / Germany known for its many small canals, shippable by punts, here again. We went there on a short vacation with some friends last weekend and where lucky, as we had a pretty sunny weather for November. The picture was done with the Leica X-Vario and postprocessed in Lightroom. I must admit that I didn't put my Vario to use that much in the last months, which is a shame, as it is such a capable little machine. Although it will probably forever stay the "little ugly sister" in the Leica universe, I am more than glad about my decision on bying this camera. What do you think?
