Some Fall Impressions from Germany

Hi all, I just came back from my "standard" tour and took a couple of pictures while doing it. I thought I'd share some:
Well, since it's fall I thought I include this picture here as well. It's an abandoned industrial building that was battered by the same storm that blew over my CBR some months ago (if I ever see that storm again I'll punch him in the nose!). So why is that among fall impressions when it already happened some months ago? Well, the tiles did FALL off of it now, didn't they.





An old windmill that has just recently got it's "wings" back a couple of weeks ago (has been without any for years).




Some general cental/northern German landscapes:









The trees have started to change colours:






An isolated farm somewhere between nowhere and the end of the world:

What part of Germany are those pic's from?

It's easy to see why many Germans who immigrated to the US (I'm of German descent) ended up homesteading in the upper midwest... some of your photos look like they could have been taken in Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Alternative lawn mower advanced model:


Steelworks on the horizon.



Alternative lawn mower deluxe model:







Burg Lichtenberg https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lichte...8Salzgitter%29



Some of the unearthed original walls:


Replica of a trebuchet:


The biggest ones could throw 300-400kg (660 - 880 pounds) heavy stones up to 600m (660 yards) far....quite impressive. They were also used to throw animal carcasses and burning oil filled barrels into enemy castles to spread diseases and fire. Sometimes even living enemy soldiers or refuges were thrown back into the castle to demoralize the defenders.
The one in the picture is rather small.


No castle without a well:


And that's it for today.

Thanks, Schroeder. Such a rich history and crisp roads and countryside. I really enjoyed reading about the Lichtenberg Castle.

This picture says it all though:



I'll be heading to Stuttgart on business in November, but I'm afraid I will miss the peak of the autumn season.
