Photographer's Note

In 1070 the Counts of Comburg-Rothenburg built their castle on a mountain top above the River Tauber in southern Germany. They named their fortress "Rothenburg ob der Tauber" which means "Red fortress above the Tauber". Perhaps relating to the red roof tiles of the houses.
Later with the growth of Rothenburg walls and towers were built for defense in the 13th century.
Today, Rothenburg is a fine preserved medieval town for visiting.
