Photography Class in Stolberg, Germany

My super fun intermediate Photography Adventures Class visited the historic and ancient town of Stolberg. The city has mining routes that date back to the year 794 and the impressive castle dates back to the 12th Century. It was lovely to walk around the narrow streets with the half timbered Renaissance style 15th century houses to the old market place, Finkenberg Church and Stolberg Castle.

We were luckly enough to have a dusting of snow dotted along the tiled roof tops which was perfect for photographing this quaint town. Here are some my favourite from our morning class. I can't wait to see what all the students captured too!

Walking along Burgstrasse to the alter markt and castle.

Faith finding the perfect door... how cute?!!
