The Frauenkirche in Dresden, painstakingly rebuilt 50 years after being destroyed in WW2. The intricate way they combined the old and the new is breathtaking!

What an incredible example of endurance! The Frauenkirche in Dresden was completely destroyed during the bombing raids of February 1945 and then painstakingly restored from 1993 onwards, using as many of the original pieces as possible. Someone described it as the largest jigsaw puzzle ever!
Today, it is a stunningly beautiful church and a major tourist attraction.
It was a grey, wet day in May and I was exploring the beautiful city of Dresden/Germany. The Zwinger is a palace built in Rococo style and I was loving the mix of gold, glass and greyish stone.
Suddenly I noticed something extra – the colourful splash of a bright red umbrella! It added so much to the picture, bringing it to life.
