August 27, 2021 - An early autumn late summer evening on the Southern Wine Route

The goals of this Palatinate Forest excursion were the Wettereck lookout point in Leinsweiler and the Slevogtfelsen, which is located on the west side of the Föhrlenberg.

Ideal photo spots for taking pictures of spectacular sunsets.
