A very beautiful view of Dresden, had to take my photo of the city as well. It was so interesting to compare the artists view and the view now. You can identify so many places.

I visited in the spring, which was, in my opinion, a perfect time of year. Halfway across the Augustus bridge over the Elba, I sat on the bench and took in the view. WWII wasn't kind to Dresden, but the view is back to its...More
