Today, on a very pleasant sunny day, i went up to Clervaux (a one hour drive for me) to take some reference pictures from the river Klierf, but also, to have a nice walk with my wife in the Clervaux area.

So for a change let me show you some touristic pictures, but also some usable as reference for anybody. I tested also my new camera , a Sony A33. .

First , the castle!

Starting the path out of Clervaux gives a few nice views

But now for the real target of this expeditions, getting reference pictures of the Clervaux river. It is obviously more a green/yellow color, very translucide, even in parts of nearly a meter deep. Mostly it had about 10-30 cm depth, a max of 1 cm in 1/35. It is also really running pretty fast everywhere. Here are is a selection of the pictures i made
