Photographer's Note

My first contribution to TrekEarth was a photo of Fehrbach Water Tower at night. A few kilometres away on the same road (which is also visible in the picture above) is the oldest water tower of Pirmasens.

The 35.85 metres high listed building stands 471.8 metres above sea level at the hill "Husterhoehe" and holds 700 cubic metres water for the higher northern parts of the city. They needed remarkably long to build the tower, from 1898 to 1907. Don't ask me why it took so long - I didn't found any information about that. Maybe next year will see some history published if the city council celebretes its 100th year in service.

What I like most at the photo are the for our region very dramatic clouds. The photo was taken from a distance of about 1 1/4 kilometres to the water tower. The original file is 2048 x 1536 pixels (3M). You see it cropped and resized to a little under half size.
