This is another one of my older photos taken with my Canon Rebel, I played around with the levels a bit before posting it here.

I remember there was a man sat to the left of me, just out of frame painting this scene and I kind of copied his composition exactly. I think it’s an interesting view of the tower with some of the typical buildings in the foreground. It’s a colourful place.

The clock tower was first built in the 14th century and had various additions over the years. The roof had to be rebuilt at one point after the town’s gunpowder supplied exploded. The small four corner turrets denote the act that the citadel had judicial autonomy and the right to decide on capital punishments.

Originally, the tower housed the town’s council but now it holds a museum. As you climb it you get to learn about the history of Sighisoara.
