These are pictures...

...I took during a wonderful holiday in Sächsische Schweiz in April 2011, during which we payed two visits to the south side of the Elbsandsteingebirge (Sandstone Mountain Range of the river Elbe), one to the fantastic sandstone arch named Pravčická brána in Czech and Prebischtor in German, the largest of it's kind in Europe, and one to the very interesting labyrinth-like complex of the Tisá walls further west.
