During a walk around Rakotzsee with the picturesque Devil's Bridge I was stunned by this very contrast scene with the autumn tree touched by the evening sun and reflection in the lake.
Rakotzsee and Rakotzbr�cke (a.k.a The Devil�s Bridge) are located in Azalea and Rhododendron Park, Kromlau, Germany (less than 6 kilometers from the Polish border). The park is a beautiful example of an �English garden� and has many small ponds and lakes. What makes Azalea and Rhododendron Park so special is Rakotzbr�cke, a Bridge that was built during the mid 19th century. The bridge was specially built to create a circle when it is reflected in the waters beneath it � a popular photo opp. The Bridge�s artificially-formed basalt columns were specially shipped from distant quarries. There is a large (and free) parking lot. Best to arrive around May when the rhododendron and azalea plants have fully bloomed. The park�s entry is free of charge and is always open.
