18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
a lonely shack in the Alpsea's evening

It was my first time in the Bavarian Alps. 3 years ago when I came to Germany for the first time, I missed the opportunity to realize my dream - to travel to the castle prototyping Disney's castle. I didn't manage the time and didn't register for the student's excursion to the castle. Now, after I realized my dream - to study in Germany, I decided to go further and realize my old dream - to visit the castle. So, I organized 4 days of unbelievable adventures. One of these days was devoted to the ones of the famous castles in Germany. This trip was in early January 2020, in precorona times, and this photo remember me of the serenity of good times that will come back once.
