Photographer's Note

The entire city centre of Colmar is made up of such half-timbered houses which put you back to the mediaeval times. And all of them feature another colour. When I was little I had a toyset with such little wooden houses painted this way and I spent hours putting cities together like Colmar.
Actually I was thinking what fairy-tale this scenery reminds me of because it seems so familiar and now it just crossed my mind that in "The Nutcracker" Opera I think they had such a stage background with all the little ballerinas and candyboys dancing in a jolly way outside on the winterly village square.

I added some saturation because the lighting was too bright that day. I also had difficulties to crop the picture nicely, the original photo isn't all that good but the roofs are maybe interesting to see too...so i just post the original too in WS for the interested ones.
