Autumn in Luxembourg

Hi all

Just in case anyone's interested, here are some of the pics I took during a few days in and around Vianden in eastern Luxembourg.  Better, I hope, than hijacking Camera Corner.

A couple in Liege/Luik on the way there...

 Red Admiral in November!

    Vianden Castle overlooks the town from a 150m high rock.

     Bridge over the River Ours.  Our hotel is on the extreme left.  A misty moisty morning.

    Gorgeous Steve. That station is something else! A real piece of modern art. image

    I don't think you should feel guilty about putting them on the camera thread either - it's what it's for, as well as any techie help that David can give us image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    The dead centre of town.  Not enough soil for deep graves so they seem to have these miniature vaults.  All looking lovely cos everyone looks after their family graves on All Souls Day.  At least there's no grass to mow.

    A few autumny ones...

    Not sure about "the dead centre of town"......

    Apparently the station in Liege has won all sorts of awards,  Very clean,  How it'll look in fifty years is another matter.

    Thanks for the compliments.  I'll put a sample and a link on Camera Corner.

    The trouble with jigsaws is all that fiddly cutting out....  I did think the maple leaf photo would make a really difficult one though.

    A couple of gardeny ones
