Weekly Photo Challenge: Inside
For something to be inside, it must be paired with an outside — the fun of the photo challenge often lies in semantics. More than most, this inside challenge has made my mind twist (inside out?) with the various possibilities. But in the end, I settled for Munot Fortress.
Munot Fortress looms above the Rhine in Switzerland, and inside the 16th century building you wind your way down into this large basement (for want of a better word). Outside, the fortress overlooks the river and across into Germany. The fortress is inside Switzerland. I am standing inside the fortress, inside a circle of light which falls through the holes in the roof above.
The fortress is just outside the town (city?) of Schaffhausen, straight over the Rhine from Germany. There’s not a lot to it, but it’s a great place to walk through in a late summer evening. After climbing a few (several, many) stairs, you get to the fortress. Inside, you can follow its twists and turns.
And at the top, outside, you get a magnificent view across the river, above the town and over the border.
