Dear Cindy, I love your photos. 🙂
Ah, I love you! Thank you Ranu~
One of my favorite cities, which you captured beautifully!
It is a marvelous city isn’t it, and the university has educated so many historical contributors to western thought. Plus they have really good food!!!
I made several visits there in my scientific days, having friends in one of Max Planck Institutes and at the European Molecular Biology Lab. Loved walking the Philosophers Walk, taking in the view you had, and then enjoying coffee and pastries in a cafe in the Cathedral Square. Still a great center of education. You brought back fond memories!
So many incredible minds arose from Heidelberg historically, Hegel, Emil Kraepelin and Max Weber had strong influences on my education So many philosophers and scientists. I am happy I was able to inadvertently trigger these memories in you, and they sound wonderful. I am glad you have them, and of course I agree about the pastries too!
Beautiful, so when is the calendar or coffee table being published?
I wish!!! Thanks for the support & Happy Friday Antionette~ <3
What beautiful golden light in this series. Love the reflections. I seem to remember Heidelberg being overcast and dreary when I was there in the mid 1970s. You’ve obviously chosen the right time of year to visit Europe (in general). You’ve shared some beautiful scenes.
The setting sun was stunning here. It lit up the town in this hazy wonderful light and threw reflections down upon the river. Lovely!
Thanks much my friend and bet you are enjoying being home for a change!
Yes I am!
Thank you. It is one of so many beautiful little German towns along rivers~
A city built of dreams. It’s our own Rivendell.
Yes! I love medieval European towns. I can imagine myself in a elfen world for days on end!
I agree, you would have an amazing book.
That is so nice and so appreciated. Thank you!
Glorious! What an awesome life you’re living, Cindy!
Like all lives, it has it’s share of good and bad. I just focus on the good.
Like you~ <3
Cheers, Cindy. 🙂 What spectacular images! You travel to the most wonderful destinations…
Thank you. Beauty is everywhere. all around us. We just need to focus on it~
Did you tour the castle? There were a lot of stairs. My mother had planned to go to university there until the war made that impossible. I love that city. Great photos. 🙂
The university creates this town and it resonates from the history of the some of the remarkable people who studied and lived there. How terribly sad for your mother to have to cut short her plans. We didn’t tour the castle, but we saw so much, including a Roma and Sinti museum that left a powerful residual effect on me.
She was just one of thousands. Life has it’s own agenda and we adapt.
Yes she was and we do, but it is still sad. War is the saddest thing of all and we engage in it far too often~
I so agree and it never seems to solve anything for long.
War makes everything worse and we seem incapable of learning, so that could be our species epitaph.
I forgot to say how delighted I am that you are getting to see so much of all of the area. What an experience!
I love spending time in Germany~
Greatly appreciating those cheers from here Cindy. Lovely.
Ahhh, so thoughtful! Thank you~
Wow, just amazing.
It is a beautiful and historical city. It has it’s own unique character that is hard to describe~
You go to the most beautiful places sweetie
I feel lucky that you come with me~ <3
Thank you. It is pretty easy with a beautiful place. It just sits there waiting!
A beautiful series of photos, Cindy! I love the reflected scenes. Sunset provided a colorful palette for your lens.
It did, it bathed the town each night is this hazy glow. Lovely~
Stunningly Beautiful Cindy, you are so lucky to see these places! Breathtaking Beauty! 🙂
Thank you and I am very happy you enjoyed this beautiful town. Happy Friday!
Gorgeous photos, Cindy. <3 Happy Mother's Day!
Happy Mother’s Day Bette! I think this is the fifth we have celebrated together. I hope there are many more~ <3
Honored. Thank you.
This beautiful town has catptured my heart. Is this one of your furvorite place? Happy touring, my friend. ♡+:｡.｡☆*~ﾟ⌒(ღˇ◡ˇ)⌒ﾟ~*☆｡.｡:+♡
It is one of my favorites. I basically love the German and Austrian river towns. They are so incredibly peaceful and beautiful. And Heidelberg has this whole intellectual piece that permeates the atmosphere. I stayed in a hotel across the river that once must have been the most lovely old home. We walked for miles up and down the river and a mama swan showed me her eggs, repeatedly. She was justifiably very proud! ♡+:｡.｡☆*~ﾟ⌒(ღˇ◡ˇ)⌒ﾟ~*☆｡.｡:+♡
That’s pawsome! ♡ヾ(๑❛ ▿ ◠๑ )
Beautiful photographs 😍
Gorgeous photos! Nice to see your tours!😊🤗😙
Glad you enjoyed & Happy Friday!
I love the reflection. Well done my friend
Ah, thanks much my friend and have a wonderful weekend!
Beautiful. It is a city and country I still have yet to visit, but want to very much as my family were originally from Germany before their migration into Russia in the late 1700s. At least I got to see Russia in 1989, during the cold war. 🙂 There is so much of Europe I still want to see. You are so fortunate Cindy to be able to travel to so many wonderful places and so gifted with a camera to get such beautiful pictures. They are deserving of a place in a (real) photo gallery. 🙂
Thank you Joyce and I hope you do go to Germany. It is one of my favorite places to visit and it will have special significance to you with your family history. I think it is meaningful to retrace one’s roots. Have a great weekend my friend~
Thank you. You too. Happy Mother’s Day. 🙂
Exquisite photos, Cindy. Absolutely stunning. Your portfolio holds myriad pleasant memories for you. And you’ll appreciate them so much more 20 years from now when in your rocking chair in front of the hearth 🙂 ❤
Laughing…..I wonder if I will. My mother in law told me to throw out all the photos she saved through her life. I understood her completely. She was 94. She no longer wanted to look at photos of her kids and grandkids, or her life. At some point hopefully you just get tired and ready for sleep…..
I hope so too, Cindy. I’m looking forward to a quiet and peaceful exit ♥
Wow, this is the kind of scene that inspires paintings! Very picturesque with all that golden light. I like the time lapse as the light becomes intense in the 4th image from the top, bathing everything in it, and then naturally attenuates. So enchanting! <3
You are so perspicacious Lynn. That is exactly what it did. I watched it for four nights fascinated by the light and the way the rowers altered the reflections.
Thank you for sharing beautiful Heidelberg it brings back many fond memories. My middle son was born in the military hospital there. I enjoyed taking the train from Worms to Heidelberg to just enjoy the area and shop of course.
Oh my gosh, it is such a small world isn’t it. And it should be this way. What wonderful memories! <3
Yes I lived in that area for 5 years.
Amazing and wonderful!

I used to live in Germany and visited Heidelberg a number of times. It’s beautiful and so are your photos. 🙂
Ahhh, thank you so much. You made me smile~ <3
Wow, your pictures are so beautiful! 😍 I live in Münster-Germany, but I’ve never been to Heidelberg. Münster is a very beautiful city, too (a city of peace, of bicycles, of churches and Germany’s Climate Protection Capital). You should make a trip to this city, dear Cindy. 🙂 Best greetings, Hang
The more time I spend in Germany (and I manage to spend a lot of time in Germany) the more of Germany I want to experience. There is a magic here that is very hard to describe and best seen to experience. I must visit Munster. <3
Very beautiful pictures. 🙂 I love reflections. As someone said, it gives you two pictures at the same price as one. 🙂
Yes it does and it somehow interests me in that there is what you see, the real object, and it’s reflection, or is it the other way around? I love that confusion~
Wunderschön Cindy. Ja, Heidelberg ist ein taffes Städtchen in Deutschland. Tolle Aufnahmen im Abendlicht, wow, Chapeau! Ernst
Vielen Dank. Jedes Mal, wenn ich von dir hörst, bin ich glücklich. Das ist die Wahrheit und ich denke, du weißt es. Bitte entschuldigen Sie meine sehr schlecht geschriebenen Deutschen. So, since my response is probably unintelligible, I just want to say that I feel happy everytime I hear from you. Serious. I do, and I hope you know it. Be well my friend~
So picturesque. Beautiful shots.☺
Thank you very much.
I love the reflection. Thank you for sharing your photos, very beautiful pictures! Have a great weekend!
Thank you much more for you very kind appreciation.
Beautiful landscape Cindy! I bet it would look even more so during the fall time!
Yes it definitely does! In fall in Germany, you wake up, bleary eyed, stick your camera out the window, and viola’, you have an amazing photo. I am especially good at these types of shots.
You always take great shots Cindy!
Amazing beautiful photos, Cindy 🙂
Hugs to you Irene~ <3
Thank you and hugs to you too Cindy <3
The reflection on the water and the color is so vividly stunning. I love how “alive” it looks. Totally awesome!
Ahhh, such a thoughtful comment made my morning!
Reblogged this on Musings on Life & Experience and commented:
Beautiful pictures of Heidelberg from Cindy.
Hugs & gratitude to you Patricia for your kind thoughtfulness~
Magical reflections ! Charmed .
So happy you are & thank you!
Gorgeous photos! Thanks for sharing.
Thank you more for the appreciation!
Thank you Margaret, these river towns are delightful places~
The colours are gorgeous, Cindy! 🙂 Happy weekend!
Happy weekend to you Jo & thank you!
Ah the gift of sunsets!!! “If I can put one touch of rosy sunset into the life of any man or woman, I shall feel that I have worked with God.” G.K. Chesterton
What a perfect lovely quotation and I am not familiar with either so thank you for the introduction & cheers to you Rebecca~
Yes Heidelberg is beautiful! Even nicer in your amazing pictures!
Ahh, so kind & so appreciated!
Was für wunderschöne Bilder von Heidelberg, liebe Cindy! So hab ich die Stadt noch nie gesehen – obwohl ich gar nicht so weit weg davon wohne.
Vielen Dank! Es ist eine charmante Stadt, wie so viele in Deutschland. Es macht eine Menge Spaß, am Fluss zu wandern und in der Altstadt zu surfen
Love that warm light during this time of the day. It perfects the reflection of those buildings and houses on the water. Great captures!
So happy you enjoyed them my friend. I loved your green tree frog!
Absolutely stunning, Cindy!
Tremendous photographs, Cindy. The river reflections are sublime. They’re brought back some lovely memories. I was doing a theatre production in Frankfurt-am-Main in ’89 and visited Heidelberg at one point, only to fall in love!
Oh what a wonderful experience. Heidelberg has a special ambience that is hard to put into words. I am glad you experienced it!
So am I!. I’ve still a lot of photos to unpack.
I would love to see them!
It might be quite a while but I’ll definitely do a post.
Absolutely beautiful, Cindy! 🙂
Vielen dank mein lieber Freund!
Awesome visuals Cindy – my cousin recently shifted to Heidelberg, perhaps I will drop in 😉 And see the DDs too 😀
I would highly recommend you do, and please visit the mama swan in the river by the bridge. Her cygnets should be swimming all over by now~
Breathtaking, Cindy! Your photos make me want to visit this beautiful town. 🙂
I hope you do and post your photos too! I would love to see them~ <3
Magnificent photos, Cindy! Thanks for taking us along.
It is much more fun traveling with you!
Vielen dank mein lieber Freund!
I always loved Heidelberg. It is so charming. Thanks for sharing Cindy.
It has a unique and special atmosphere that is hard to describe. I am glad you have experienced it!
I think, in large part, it is due to the fact that it is a university town.
New camera or a loaner? My sources tell me at least one photo is from a Sony DSC-RX10M2, not that there is anything wrong with that! I’ve just found that my hi-res photos are inhaling storage space and I’m reluctant to opt for the WordPress Business Plan as I’m not the dedicated blogger SOME people are. 😉 -wink
Beautiful photos as always of course. Perhaps I should just tell you if I ever see a bad one, but then I would never comment on your posts. 🙂
My photos are mixtures now of HX400 And RX10. I label them accordingly so I can tell the difference. The Rx is possibly sharper and best with landscapes, but the 400 is the go to camera for macros and zoom wildlife. The price differential is significant between the two, and if I have to pick one for the day, it is the 400 which is much less expensive.
Thanks for the info.
Do you use a circular polarizer lens filter?
Wow, so beautiful photos 🙂
Makes me happy you like them!
Such lovely reflections Cindy …. and memories too I bet 💛
Mama swam and Mama Egyptian Goose are highlights, and the food of course! 😉
Eyecatching, Cindy. What a gorgeous medieval university town!
Yes, it is a beautiful little hamlet all tucked by the river on it’s own.
Wow…is this on Earth?!!! So b’ful!!
Stunning photos. I love the warm colors, the reflections and the castle (?) overlooking the town. Gorgeous. 🙂
The castle is quite a lumbering presence isn’t she! She adds beautifully to the whole gestalt~
Beautiful!😀 Best regards from Jule and their Can openers
Best regards back to you all & cheers too!
Well, that is just the most picturesque place I’ve seen…… maybe ever! I’m sure if I did see something more picturesque, it was on this blog. You travels and photographs are spectacular! Thank you, Cindy! xo
You are the bestest blogging buddy Resa. Do you know Charlotte Hoather? I suggested she commission you to design her a dress for her opera performances. She wants it to resemble the mandarin ducks. I think you would make something phenomenal and I hope she contacts you! Of course neither of you may have the time……but someday, maybe!
I don’t know her personally, but she follows Art Gowns & I follow her. I would love to do her a gown. I told her to contact me if she was coming to Toronto! xx
Your photographs are stunning and beautiful!
Ahh, your kindness is much appreciated! Thank you & cheers too~
So picturesque Cindy and the colours are gorgeous 🙂
Some scenes are just waiting for a photo! <3
Yes and you captured them beautifully 💖
também…hehe (tan bien, that’s spanish…). All the best!
Simply beautiful, Cindy! I love the village’s reflection in the water. It’s such a peaceful view … Germany must not have hurricanes!
No hurricanes inland at least!
Cindy…how stunningly beautiful your photography is and Heidelberg is such an interesting city and the river, looks so pristine. How lovely. Thank you so much for sharing. K D 🙂
Thank you much more for your kind appreciation!
Cindy, my pleasure! Karen 🙂
All these photos are absolutely beautiful!
Ahhhh, you are absolutely lovely to say so. Thank you!
Thank you Sheri & hope all is well with you and Tom~ <3
Beautiful landscapes, Cindy. Great reflections. Is this your first visit to Heidelberg?
It was my first time and I as so glad we went~
One of the cutest German town!
Yes, and there are so many!
Actually, any small town in Germany has its own character and beauty. It is really difficult to choose the best.
Cindy, if you are still there in Germany, say hello to it for me, please. I love this country. 🙂
I am home now, but we both send our love to Germany~
Very refreshing considering it’s the hottest month in the dry season here.
All of Europe was having an unprecedented heat wave for a month while we traveled, until we got to Germany where it started to snow!
Wonderfully reflected beautiful place! Happy travels, Cindy!
I am back at The Holler now, but so pleased you enjoyed & cheers to you~
Your photography has showcased the beauty of this city. I remember going there with a group of printers to the Heidelberg Press factory in the 1980’s. And later with Bill. Thanks for sharing.
Those sound like wonderful memories!
Love that architecture. And your photos ain’t too shabby, either. Thanks for sharing these.
Thank you more Emilil for appreciating them!
Wow, absolutely gorgeous. Thanks for the tour. 🙂
You are wonderful fun to tour with my friend & cheers to you~ <3
Thank you <3
tolle Bilder von einer tollen Stadt, möge dir dieser Tag Freude bereiten
Ich danke dir sehr! Ich hoffe du hast auch einen wunderschönen Tag!
möge es ein gutes Wochenende werden
Heidelberg is such a delightful city, isn’t it. And you captured its beauty in the setting sun in these lovely photos.
Thank you so much and yes, Heidelberg is a special place. I have the fondest memories of the place we stayed across the river.
Bonsoir ou bonjour CINDY
Une belle amitié
C’est deux mains sur un clavier
Le passage sur un profil
Une image que l’on dépose
Sur une personne que l’on apprécie
De quelqu’un gentil et sage
On dépose des petits mots bien placés
Dans ce joli petit monde
Moi je suis toujours là pour faire sourire
Et cela me fait toujours plaisir
Au fond de mon coeur
Je t’offre ce bonheur
Je te dis bonne nuit ou bonjour
Merci beaucoup mon ami Bernard!
Danke schoen mein lieber Freund Lynn!
Glorious in evening light!
It was perfect, three nights in a row!
Wonderful theme here Cindy– it seems most historic cities were built on water (makes sense)– Love the reflected colors of the trees in the water… I’ll bet you’re having fun reviewing the whole trip through your pictures Cindy! Love seeing them… xox
What amazes me is how long they last in water. Have fun in San Fran! <3
These pcitures are as gorgeous as those Strasburg ones of yours. I like them a lot.
I found you in spam! Thank you for alerting me and thank you so very much for your thoughtfulness. Cheers to you~
Ah, Heldelberg ! Such a beautiful place and wonderful pics, Cuz. Did you, by chance, have a tankard of ale with the Student Prince while you were there ? Ha ! 🙂
My husband drinks the German beer for me and sadly we missed the Prince. Ah well, such is life! Hope all is well with you cuz~ <3
Things are well, Cindy, but too busy with family stuff right now. I’m ready for a little “quiet time”. 🙂
Personally, I like the German wines !
We both love the German wines! <3
Appears to be some castle on top of the hill. We haven’t done a European river cruise … well, not yet!
I recommend it in the fall. You can get 2 for 1 air fare and cruise deals.
Which cruise line did you use?
We used Viking, and did one river cruise and one Viking ocean cruise. Check out the competition because there was room for improvement. Still the cruise that goes from Copenhagen to Budapest was absolutely wonderful in November. The Bavarian towns were ethereal and there were no tourists.
Thanks for the scoop. Always heard great comments on Viking from friends … someone tipped us on Avalon because of their rooms and tour guides.
I would definitely check out the competition.
Thank you for the like Cindy. 🙂
I like you Ranu~ <3
Thank you Cindy, once again for the like. 🙂
I always like your posts Ranu~ <3
Catching up on your beautiful blog, Cindy! <3 I loved my visit to Heidelberg…but it's been 31 years so thanks for taking me back!
Wonderful to know it hasn’t changed isn’t it! <3
If anything, you made it even more beautiful than I remembered it being. 🙂 x
Awwww, you are very kind! <3
