    Looks like some of the chimneys have been covered overtime, l was expecting to see heaps of thm on the rooves but there seems only a few there, lovely shot with the castle in the BG

  • Hehe, I know what you mean. This view looks over the city centre which ios mostly commercial buildings, many have been reworked or replaced over the years, hence very few chimneys. The Residential areas are a sea of chimneys …
