The Old Bridge, Heidelberg, Germany

old bridge fog heidelberg germany
I just love this photo, and not only because I ran about three kilometers to get it.

Since we've been in Germany, the weather has been uniformly dreary. But at least this morning, instead of just dull overcast, we had fog in Heidelberg. So, I grabbed the camera and rushed out to the river. I walked pretty much as fast as I could for three kilometers up the opposite side of the Neckar River to the Old Bridge (Alte Brücke) where it crosses into the Old City of Heidelberg.

I was hoping all the half hour I was walking that the fog didn't dissipate before I got there. I didn't need to worry, though, because the fog ended up hanging around all day, and I was able to get some more shots from up the hill at the castle down onto the Old City. More of those on another day in another post.

I processed this as black and white, because, well, foggy days just look better in black and white.

  1. I have been to Heidelberg many times, always loved wandering in and around the castle and eating in the bierhalls after. But I don’t think I ever saw sunshine there. Your fabulous bridge picture precisely captures the mood I remember.
