Photographer's Note

As times are passing, the question arises which sites and items have irretrievably been lost in the July 2021 floodings.
There is a nice guidebook titled "111 places you should have seen in Ahr valley", and I asked myself if it was still possible to sell it without fraud as many items should be gone forever. I was astonished to learn that less that 10 percent of the mentioned do not exist any more, including this stone circle which was installed and kept up by a couple who likes them. The circle had less than six months to live when I took this.
The village of Walporzheim in the background lies directly behind a bottleneck of Ahr valley and had up to 3 m of wood, cars, caravans, mud and debris piled up in the streets when the water was gone.
