Early spring, May and autumn in Kętrzyn, Poland. Beautiful sunny spring days, misty and rainy autumn evenings, amazing light, interesting architecture, magic colors, city life and a photo walk in cool company - Olympus filming and shooting... Creative weekends in Masuria. The photos in this gallery were created using the LG 4G phone and Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II. I also invite you to watch the city from a different perspective: Kętrzyn - photos from above.

I like such districts and houses - they have their own style ...
Colors of the city
There is color, there are flowers, there is joy and positive energy
Collegiate Church of St. George in Ketrzyn. Walls, observation tower - looks more like a castle than a church ... You must see this amazing monument because it is the best preserved defense church in Masuria.

Ketrzyn is a city full of colors for me. I also liked the interesting combination of architecture from different eras.

I liked it - there are some enthusiasts in this city :-) Some people like to play football and others to photograph :-)
Lights and Sezam
Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II + Olympus M.Zuiko ED 12-100 mm f/4 IS PRO. It's a very good lens and perfect for trip in my opinion.

There you can see a wind farm on the road from Bartoszyce to Ketrzyn. I liked the interesting combination of classic Polish dirt road, willows and wind turbines.
Sunny Ketrzyn, Masuria
The weather was not spectacular on the way - gray sky, cloudy, rain ... but in Ketrzyn spring showed its magical sunny side. The colors just exploded ... anyway what a lot to write just look at the picture.

It is also worth visiting the courtyards where you can do a lot of climatic pictures while visiting this interesting Masurian city.
Pyramid in Ketrzyn, Poland
Architecture photography - that's What I like... Shapes, forms, colors, lights, shadows and the use of optical properties of lenses - fun of photography.
I like taking pictures in cities, especially where there are no crowds in the streets.
Walk around Ketrzyn
The colors, light and clarity of air in this beautiful cool day were unreal. Is it always so colorful? You can see the street of Powstańców Warszawy and the tower of St. Catherine in the picture.
Town Hall in Ketrzyn
The town of Ketrzyn (Rastembork, Rastenburg, Rastanpils) is an interesting historical, architectural and photographic place on the map of Poland. You can see here the building of the City Hall from the back :-)
Photographer - trip destroyer
I like to explore the city in the photographic group because the photographer is a trip destroyer... he must come in everywhere, he is standing and waiting ... for the light ... for the cloud ... until someone leaves or until somebody comes ... It's kind of a massacre for people who do not take photos ...
Townhouses from the yard
The architecture, the pink balcony, the reflections in the glass and the light sliding off the roof to illuminate the gutter ... I like pictures that have lots of details to watch ...
To see the time
Such places where you can see and feel the time always stop me ...
City photo session - backstage
Andrzej Frankowski in action - nature of the city ...
Some people are surprised that I am photographing such places and do not understand what is nice in them ... maybe I'm strange but I like it ...
Visiting the Castle in Ketrzyn
My look at the courtyard of the Teutonic Knights castle in Ketrzyn - worth visiting the castle - interesting place and very nice people :-)
Kętrzyn Collegiate Church and old mill
The next day was cloudy and rained ... Ketrzyn is a very interesting city I will definitely be back there - because this time I saw only a small part of what you can see there ...
