Castle on the Rocks, originally uploaded by Habub3.

Lichtenstein Castle in Germany – lichtenstein means “light (colored) stone.”

Wikipedia informs us that there has been a castle on the site since around 1200, though the current Neo-Gothic one dates from the 1840s. (Previous castles on the site were destroyed in the 1300s.)

Enjoy today’s photo! If you like the photo, please drop a comment to the original photographer at Flickr.
