Your amazing photos truly show off the stunning architecture.
What a nice thing to say! Thank you~
It is one of my favorite cities.
Die Fotos sind Klasse,
Vielen dank Wolfgang!
Thanks Bette. It is an incredible city!
Ich bin froh, dass du sie genossen hast! Vielen Dank.
Again, those stunning water reflections that you’re so good at. Wonderful.
Thank you. I love reflections! They challenge perception.
Merci beaucoup mon ami!
It is just a fabulous city!
Lovely photos. 😊
Very pleased you like them & cheers!
Because of its history the city looks more German than French.
Yes, I agree. It feels more German too.
I just love your way of photographing. Absolutely magnificent!
Honored and humbled. Thank you Nadia!
You don’t keep still, do you? And those pictures!
Laughing…..I actually do. I just take a lot of photos!
Again, thank you for sharing your travels with us. As always, great selection of subject, composition, technical skill, and power to command the waters to be still.
Oh, what a kind and generous comment! I so wish I could command waters, or anything for that matter! 😉 😉
Beautiful photographs thank you for sharing them!
Thank you more for the kind appreciation!
So beautiful…! 😍
It is incredibly beautiful, thank you Andy~
Absolutely beautiful photographs, Cindy. What a fabulous place.
Ahhhh, honored. Thank you so much!
Wonderful captures of this stunning place Cindy ❤️
It is just a wonderful city to explore. So pleased you enjoyed Val~
Thank you for sharing this beautiful world.
Thank you for letting me! <3
Lovely Cindy, did you see the clock in the Cathedral?
Oh yes! Couldn’t miss it. I have photos of course! 😉
Do show us please, Cindy.
Amazing pics…And such a serene and calm place with magnificent buildings!
It is that sense of peace that comes from living testaments from the past. The entire old city center is like this.
Beautiful. Superb. Superlatively excellent.
Ahhhh, you are a good friend John!
It’s always funny to see how deeply German these Alsacean cities (still) are. Great pictures Cindy!
Strasbourg is especially so. I had to keep reminding myself we were in France.
It’s awesome, Cindy. 🙂
Thanks so much for letting me share it with you my friend~ <3
oh my goodness, how beautiful are these photos. I am so glad to have a friend that allows me to take a mental vacation everytime I read her blog!!!!
Yay! I am so glad to have a friend like you Antionette! <3
Beautiful city and photos, Cindy. What a wonderful place to visit!
I highly recommend to anyone who plans to visit the region.
Amazing beauty! I love the buildings, and how the water flows through.
It is just lovely isn’t it. And so calming to realize it has done just this for hundreds of years.
Yes, for sure. ☺
Awww, thank you Carrie! <3
Your photos take me back to my youth in the Netherlands and Germany. 🙂 <3
Oh how wonderful. Makes me happy to know!
I couldn’t get enough of these amazing photos, Cindy. I scrolled through three times. Beautiful!
You just made my heart smile! Thank you~ <3
Gorgeous shots of a gorgeous city! I visited in 1976 – and still remember its beauty.
And of course, the old city hasn’t changed a bit. How wonderful that is!
Wonderful captures! Beautiful city!
Makes me happy you think so!
Such gorgeous pictures, Cindy! A beautiful place… 🙂
Thank you Maniparna. It is a magical place.
Unbelievably beautiful, Cindy!! The last photo is so very romantic. Thank you for taking us there. 💖
Thank you more for coming with me Amy, as you always do. I love traveling with you!
The pleasure is mine. 😊
Beautiful photos Cindy!
Now how could one not be enchanted by scenery and old buildings in that city. Blue sky and still waters really do make it the best time of year to visit (and make photos).
It is an enchanting place, particularly in the conditions you mention!
such beautiful images Cindy
Much appreciated Julz!
These are lovely captures of the charming place!
So happy you like them & cheers to you my friend!
Your photography is stunning!
Awww, your kindness is so appreciated Charles.
I am sooo jealous. That is such a beautiful city and your photos do it justice. Wow! If I could win the lottery, I’d be there in a heartbeat.
I want you to win the lottery and GO!!! I’ll buy an extra ticket for you~ <3
I won the lottery by finding your photos. They are EXTREMELY good!
Awwww, so kind. <3
Beautiful place. Beautiful photographs. You are such a wonder!
Back 2UX2 sister! <3
Wow Cindy for really lovely and beautiful photos 🙂
Strasbourg looks like an amazing place.
It is an amazing place and we stayed amongst the rooftops where I photographed the roof cats at night. Heaven!
I believe you 🙂
My namesake ancestors were Alsatian, but for some reason I never took the time to put an image in my mind. Now you’ve given me a bunch of really great images. Thanks!
Your ancestors come from an incredibly beautiful and culturally rich part of the world. You should be very proud of them.
Stunning as always.Cheers!
Cheers back to you and thank you!
I’m struck by not just the peaceful scene but also how clean it is there! And you have great luck, Cindy, seeing how often you’ve captured brides in their beautiful wedding gowns to enhance the romantic atmosphere! 🙂
The bride thing is amazing isn’t it! It even shocks me. I’m not a wedding photographer. I was watching one recently somewhere else, and I was thinking “no, no, don’t pose it like that”……laughing! I always want to give the couples my photos, but it would be intrusive.
Oh yeah, I totally get that. It’s kind of like, “Oh, hello! We don’t know each other but I’ve been following you!” Hahaha! 😀
Exactly. Sometimes I am put off by photographers who invade people’s privacy on the streets. I am not comfortable with that at all.
I love your reflections, Cindy. I know this place a little from Drake’s posts. An incredibly romantic place to marry. 🙂 🙂
It is and to honeymoon!
You are amazing.
So are you! We are lucky to know each other. <3
Beautiful,it reminds me of one of these towns you see in cartoons.
Thanks, like a storybook~
Beautiful, so beautiful Dear Cindy, you really captured so artistic and romantic moments in the city. Thank you, Love, nia
Thank you more Nia for such a kind and lovely comment~ <3
Ain’t nothing to ‘Strasbourg’ in such a lovely place, my friend!
So beautiful, Cindy. I love the still water, the golden windows, and the cobbled streets. What a great place to visit.
Absolutely stunning photos! I can’t wait to add stamps to my passport.
Your reflections series truly is amazing, as I was just reminded by seeing your posts on Facebook! HUGS to you, Cindy ♥
Ahhhh, I guess this means I should keep posting on FB! Sometimes I wonder. Thank you so much Christy. I appreciate your kindness.
Gorgeous pictorial poem. 🙂
What a lovely and lyrical way to describe it. Thank you.
gorgeous! just gorgeous!
Ahhh, happy day to you dear Robert~
This post couldn’t be prettier Cindy!! It’s amazing that you found the water so so still for those reflective photos. Beautiful. Hope all’s going well with you– I’m up in San Francisco watching our grand-girl little Lois for the week! take care. xox
Thank you Rhonda and have a wonderful time in my favorite US city! You are right next door to my daughter~ <3
Hi Cindy! We really like SF too– so many good places to eat! And a surprising number of good hikes in and around the city– plus grand-kids, of course! Where is your daughter?? Our daughter lived in Berkeley, Oakland and now SF. Our sons family is here too. Loved your city reflections Cindy– beautiful theme… xo
I love these pictures: they’re simply fantastic. As are those from Heidelberg. I tried to comment to that post, but my comment didn’t appear. Maybe it ended up in your spam folder. That has frequently happened to my comments on other blogs. Would you mind checking?
As to the pictures: I noticed that they don’t have the EXIF-information any more. So, may I ask you which camera you use?
Oh, one more thing: I’m just now looking at one of the Strasburg pictures [that with the old houses along a curved waterway} on my big 27″ monitor in high resolution. May I use this picture as a desktop background? Of course, on my personal computer only. That brings me to another idea: wouldn’t you want to put a watermark in? I could imagine that somebody might otherwise simply copy and publish some of your pictures.
I’m looking forward to seeing more soon,
I am honored that you will use my photo as background. It makes me happy I posted it. Thank you for asking. I am sure people do use my photos and I am happy they do as long as they credit me if they use them publically. Lots of times people ask to use them and this makes me happy. I will check spam. This happens a lot with comments, so thank you for the heads up. In all these reflection shots, I used both Sony HX400 and Sony RX10 interchangeably. I labeled the photos by camera so I could do a comparison, so if you want to know about a specific photo, I can tell you. As far as which camera I prefer, it would be HX400 for zoom, macro and all wildlife, and RX10 for landscapes. Thank you so much for your very thoughtful comment.
A fairytale landscape! Beautiful – how were the pastries? 😉
Fabulous of course!
Omg Cindy, these photos are exquisite. I can’t even express how appreciative I am for your sharing. I hope someday to visit all the beautiful places you’ve captured in your photos. Someday… 💖
I hope you do too and when you do, please share your impressions with me my dear friend~ <3
You’ll top my list, darlin’ 💖
Such gorgeous reflections and even just the architecture! My hubby has been all over Europe as a young man, and wants to take me to Germany, where his father was born, along with many other countries! Thanks for sharing, Cindy!
You must go! Preferably in spring or fall. I look forward to your posts~
So beautiful, Cindy! With loveMaxima
Love back to you my friend~
How gorgeous! What a romantic place for a wedding! Love all that still water, too!
The weddings make the storybook settings into real storybooks! <3
Beautiful photos! 🙂
Strasbourg is another of my favourite places! I am enjoying your pictures of some of my favourites immensely!
I am so glad you do and thanks for letting me know!
OMG!!! Strasbourg….not Heidelberg! I keep coming over here to maybe see hummingbirds, but kept seeing what I thought was the last post. Good grief how many pretty, picturesque fairy tale places along water are there in Europe?
I’ve seen some night shots of Toronto with all its lights reflected on the lake, but this is so different.
Beautifully shot, Cindy!
Say hello to the Holler for me!
Beautiful pictures and I place I want to visit.
Thank you & I hope you do and post about it too!
Yes. A piece of poetry for future fantasies of beautiful places i want to visit.
All beautiful images, as always!
What an excellent place. Thanks for the view. 🙂
Stunning photos that end with a wedding Shakespeare style!
Gorgeous photos of a gorgeous place
I am so pleased you enjoyed & thank you for the lovely words!
Beautiful, as always.
Very kind of you as always!
The water-ways add to the image of the town. – Oscar
You’re right. These old medieval towns were canals are just pure charm and there are a lot of them.

More beautiful photos from Cindy.
Thank you for your kind thoughtfulness Patricia. You are so appreciated~ <3
Thank you for this lovely breath of Strasbourg, Cindy — your photos, as usual, are stunning.
Thank you more for such a lovely comment my friend & cheers to you!
Truly magnificent photography Cindy. 🙂 x
Honored and humbled that you think so my friend~ <3
Wow! Amazing Shots and Scenes! 👍
So happy you enjoyed & cheers to you!
Yes Indeed. 👍
Beautiful photos Cindy. Happy Sunday to you. 🙂
Visa versa 2U! <3
Stunning reflections, indeed! I love the traditional buildings along the river.
Aren’t they wonderful fairytale cottages!
Glad I do not have the job of maintaining the roof on the “UNESCO’s pride” photo.
Yes, that would be dangerous!
Oh wow… what a share… brilliant…
So great to hear from you and your golf course looks wonderful! I would love to visit the resort.
Strasbourg is beautiful. I love the old strasbourg, and cannot wait to return. Thank you for posting
It is a magical old city isn’t it! <3
yes it is like you said, magical is the word hahaha, I cannot wait to go there again one day. so soon!
I look forward to hearing about your visit, soon! 😉
ravishing photos of a ravishing place – <3 <3 <3
Awww, so appreciated! Thank you~ <3
Bonjour ou bonsoir CINDY belle ville STRASBOURG je suis à 120 km
S’il existe un sentiment
Pas toujours perçu a sa juste valeur, c’est bien l’amitié
Elle est beaucoup plus sincère et profonde
Que la simple camaraderie
Redonne souvent de l’espoir quand la vie est difficile
L’amitié ne s’épanouit de respect et d’honnêteté
Voila donc pourquoi, jouir de ton amitié
D’une personne comme toi, est un immense privilège
Que rien au monde ne serait remplacer
Je te souhaite une belle et agréable journée ou soirée
Je te fais de Gros Bisous.
Merci beaucoup mon ami Bernard!
Your photos take me back. I loved my visit to Strasbourg. Quaint and absolutely pretty place.
Yes it is quite special and I am glad you experienced it for yourself! <3
Sheer beauty … and it seems to be a German Venice!
There are lots of these other Venices scattered around. Strasbourg and Aveiro have no crowds. Brugge does.
So beautiful ♥
Awww, so pleased you think so!
How beautiful. I really liked the one with the kayaker. All of that old European architecture and then suddenly something from our generation. Cool juxtaposition!
How perceptive of you to notice. I photographed the same juxtaposition in Heidelberg. I love it too, surfing the river wars in the medieval town!
Reblogged this on WHOLE.
Very touched by your kind thoughtfulness!
No worries 🙂
Beautiful place! My ‘Bucket List’ is crowded with all the places you’ve introduced me to that I’d like to go some day. That lazy river is ideal for kayaking. Lovely pictures. <3
That makes me smile and feel very happy, because creating and carrying out a bucket list makes life meaningful and happy! <3
Your photography is so gorgeous! Makes me want to travel more and see the world!
Wonderful! If it encourages you to do this, then I am happy I posted because travel opens your eyes, mind and <3 !
Definitely! I always enjoy your posts 🙂
So beautiful! Best regards from Jule and their Can openers 😀
Visa versa 2UX2! <3
You are very kind and most appreciated! <3
Curtis Bausse is editing an anthology of short stories and hopes photographers will submit work with the theme “Journey” (broadly interpreted). The photos need not be linked to the stories. Proceeds will go to charity. I have nothing to send him, but U might.
Deadline is 2017-06-20 and details are in
Thank you very much for the lead. I will follow up on it!
Beautiful architecture, maybe I should skip Paris one year and try Strasbourg 🙂 Thanks for sharing.
It is worth considering. Paris is overcrowded. Strasbourg and Prague and Aveiro are incredibly gorgeous cities with few crowds and are much less expensive.
What a beautiful place, you think government offices when you hear Strasbourg.
Fabulous photos what a gorgeous day to visit.
It was here that we sat and chatted over lunch with Joyce DiDanato. My husband still hasn’t gotten over it because he is such an opera lover. I just thought she was a nice, down to earth person, which she is!
Very inspiring place
Very pleased you find it so and thanks for letting me know~
Thank you Cindy, you are awesome. 🙂
Visa versa 2UX2! <3
Lovely. Finally grabbing some time to enjoy your wonderful photos. I really like these of Strasbourg, because I have never been there. Have you been to S. W. France? The Midi-Pyrenees, particularly Albi and Carcasonne are fascinating.
I haven’t been to that area but it sounds delightful!
Your amazing photos are magazine quality reflections of luminescent Grace! How could we not believe in “something” when we have these moments captured as evidence? Thank you, Cindy. xo 🙏
You are a sweetheart Robin! Have a wonderful weekend my friend~ <3
Very artistic clicks & inviting to the places
That is very kind of you to say. Thank you & nice to meet you~
