In October 2014 I went to Alsace, in eastern France, with my friend Georges Pelpel. It is very colorful, and I do not understand why no one leads photo tours there. As I wandered around Alsace I came to think of it as the Napa Valley on steroids. I also paraphrased a line from Henry V: I love Alsace so well that I will not part with a village of it. I made almost all of the images with my Nex-6 and a Tamron 18-200 mm lens.

I made a practice of photographing town names so I could keep track of where we were. This one looks worth keeping.

The weather was rather dull, but that helped with the water.
