Castle in the Sky

208 MEGAPIXEL VAST PHOTO
Zellerhorn Gipfel, Albstadt, Germany

Transport yourself to a world of enchantment with this captivating photograph showcasing the majestic Burg Hohenzollern Castle. Shot on a chilly March afternoon from a high vantage point, the castle stands proudly atop a mountain, seemingly suspended in the sky and embraced by a lush forest. The artist's creative vision brings forth a mesmerizing icy cool feel, as the colours are transformed into ethereal blue tones, enhancing the castle's mystical allure.

During sunset, soft and gentle light gracefully bathes the scene from the left, casting a subtle and enchanting ambience over the entire composition. From this elevated perspective, you are treated to a panoramic view that reveals the vast lowland below, creating a striking contrast that emphasizes the castle as the focal point of the image. It serves as a visual reminder of the fairy tale stories that have captured our imaginations, much like the renowned Walt Disney castle.

This high-resolution photograph allows you to immerse yourself in the intricate details of the castle, as it proudly stands against the expansive backdrop of the surrounding landscape. Every turret, arch, and intricate architectural feature is brought to life, inviting you to delve into the rich history and Gothic-style splendour that the Hohenzollern Castle represents.

Located atop Mount Hohenzollern in Baden-Württemberg, Germany, is the ancestral seat of the imperial House of Hohenzollern. The castle has a rich history, with the first structure built in the 11th century. It underwent destruction and reconstruction over the years, serving as a refuge during the Thirty Years' War. The current castle, built between 1846 and 1867, is a family memorial designed by architect Friedrich August Stüler. While it was never occupied by the Hohenzollern family or German emperors, it houses significant historical artefacts, including the Crown of Wilhelm II and the personal effects of King Frederick the Great.

Beyond its historical significance, the castle serves as a symbol of German culture and heritage, a testament to the medieval marvels that have stood the test of time. It evokes a sense of wonder and nostalgia, reminding us of the enchanting tales and fairy tales we grew up cherishing.

VAST Print™

A VAST Print™ represents the pinnacle of the photographic medium. Each print is a true photograph created specifically for you using light-sensitive paper exposed in a darkroom with the industry's highest precision exposure technique. Your print is then sealed with a shine-enhancing protective glossy coating*, adhered to a sturdy aluminum composite backing, and finished in one of two ready-to-hang formats:

  • Frameless floating display: A hidden mounting brace on the rear gracefully "floats" the print off the wall for a sleek, modern look.
  • Framed display: The print is mounted inside one of our handcrafted 100% wood frames with a decorative separation between the print and the frame so that the print appears to be floating within the frame, providing depth and elegance to the finished photo.

*Note: a non-glossy, satin matte coating is alternatively available on request.
