Three towers by Wanderlouve Three towers by Wanderlouve
I made this photo from the upper platform of Kłodzko Fortress. An old one (but the date is wrong, I made it last winter, not in 2004:P). But still good memories. I really like Kłodzko and all it's old architecture, the main square is pretty amazing with all this old sculptures on buildings and amazing structures. And the fortress, simply incredible. With many underground corridors, some of them so small that you must crawling on your belly to get through them.
Back to the view - it shows two towers of Church of Our Lady of the Rosary on the front - all altars, paintings and all the equipment in this church is in ecltectic style from nineteenth century. Painted decorations inside the church refer to the cycle of the Holy Rosary containing the 15 secrets. And on the back you can see Neo-Renaissance town hall tower. This tower is the oldest and best-preserved part of the original City Hall, with a square cross section, having a renaissance gallery in it. The upper part is octagonal and has a Baroque dome with a spire.
It was a windy, foggy day, sun was dimmed because of it. I was waiting for it to come down behind the towers and made some kind of afterglow. I think I made my point.

Kłodzko, Poland.

Heart Heart Heart Wieża jest jednym z najstarszych archetypów, często przywoływanym przez artystów różnych epok. Obraz wieży kryje w sobie wiele odniesień symbolicznych i wpisuje się w bogate konteksty kulturowe. Ucieleśnia różnorodne, często skrajnie odmienne znaczenia; z jednej strony symbolizuje kaźń, niewolę, stracenie, grób, śmierć, zdradę, więzienie, samotność, z drugiej strony – oczyszczenie, wolność, ukojenie, spokój, piękno, majestat, wspaniałość, nadzieję, schronienie, bezpieczeństwo, medytację, przemianę.Heart +fav Heart  ..Cieszymy się, że poprzez piękne fotografie pokazujesz swoją osobowość...Heart Heart Heart

You absolutely made your point that day!! It is a lovely shot you captured. Oh how I love knowing the history behind your Polish wonders!! If I were there, I would just stand in the town square, breathing deeply and taking it all in!!! I just picture all the people before me who may have stood in that same spot, and saw the same beauty as me. I'm quite the dreamer eh? lol I love this!!!
