Rudesheim, Germany

Rudesheim is a small city, sitting next to the Rhein river and near to Frankfurt by only less than an hour of train.

It's certainly worthwhile to visit: beautiful vineyards, a peaceful town with many small brick roads, plus the river & the famous Niederwald Monument. So getting tourist into your frame is inevitable.

Paying less than 10EUR for a cable car to the top of the mountain, gliding over the grape vineyard, is a MUST. It offers spectacular views that I can't be rested with my camera :)

I particularly like this shot (below) as the cloudy sky helped me "paint" the vineyard with shadows, adding a lot more depth to the scene. Hmm... lucky me :D

Special thanks to Vinh for being my tour guide & so patient with me since quite often, I walked a few meters and then stopped for taking photos :">
