I have toyed with the idea of scanning some of my older travel photos for a while now. I’d like to scan the actual negatives, but am not sure I want to spend a lot of money on a scanner I won’t use after I’m done with all the negatives. There’s a company that will scan negatives for you, but I just found out they send them to India. That’s a little too far for my comfort zone. In the meantime, I’ll scan the photos themselves and share occasionally.
During a trip to Southern Bavaria, we took a boat ride on the Königsee. . . .
Yes, the water is that shade of green. It was so bizarre and beautiful. Supposedly, the color comes from chalk particles dissolved in the water, which reflect the sunlight shining on them.
The Königsee is 650 feet (190 meters) deep in some places.
We ended up here:
St. Bartholomä (Bartholomew) church is built in the Baroque style, with a floor plan modeled on Salzburg Cathedral.
What a boat ride. The emerald water, the towering German Alps and this picturesque church. . .wonderful.
