First of all thankyou for featuring my photo as banner last week. Unfortunately I was not here as we spent last week-end visiting my son in Schaffhausen and I actually left my computer for two days. However I compensated by taking over 200 photos in Schaffhausen. As usual I am posting on Friday as my Saturday morning plans do not fit with Picture This.
And now for this week. I chose Landmark as to be quite honest, it was all that came to my mind. I am sure wherever you live, you have your own landmarks.
If you visit Shaffhausen, you take a photo of the Rheinfall
On the way to Schaffhausen you pass through the station of Gösgen in Kanton Solothurn, just 40 minutes by road from where we live. It has a nuclear power plant, built in 1979, so what could be better as a landmark. You even see the steam rising through the clouds if you fly over it. I always try for a photo when I take this route. It is only steam that comes out of the chimney, they say, nothing dangerous. One day we will make an excursion by car so that I can get up closer and don't take your geiger counter with you, they will not let you in.
This is Schloss Laufen which towers above the Rheinfall. There is a train, but also a lift.
And our cathedral, St. Urs in Solothurn. I took this photo today.
