2019-07-23 APRICOT HARVEST SELF SERVICE

By |2019-07-23T06:15:51+01:00July 23rd, 2019|Austria|

At the weekend we made a trip to the Wachau. The area is famous for its delicious apricots. Now is just harvest time, and on many trees still, hang the ripe fruit. Eating fresh fruits directly from the tree is a particularly rich experience of nature.

2019-07-16 VILLAGE CHURCHES IN AUSTRIA

By |2019-07-16T18:21:04+01:00July 16th, 2019|Austria|

I am always surprised by what great interior decoration you can find in village churches. Often the villages have only a few thousand inhabitants. But have magnificent churches meticulously maintained with organs, ornaments, and golden structures. I think I shot this photo of a church, which is in a place in the World Heritage Wachau in Austria.

2019-06-18 TREE WITH SUN AT THE WINE GARDENS

By |2019-06-17T21:45:27+01:00June 18th, 2019|Austria|

Driving around on the hills with wine gardens in the UNESCO heritage Wachau was a pleasure. Lovely villages and terraced vineyards shaped the impression. I took some panoramic photos of the river valley of the Danube and black and white photos of the vineyards and nature.

2019-06-14 THE LAST SNOW

By |2019-06-13T19:10:02+01:00June 14th, 2019|Austria|

I wondered how it is possible that at 35 degrees Celsius still snow remains. But on the mountain, Rax with a height of 1943 meters were staying snow deposits to see. My daughter used the opportunity to feel the natural spectacle. This photo was shot on June 5th, middle in the summer.

2019-06-03 THE ARTISTIC CEILING

By |2019-05-26T14:06:17+01:00June 2nd, 2019|Austria|

From time to time my wife Karin and I visit a castle on Sunday afternoon. Since most of the tourists are steady-smartphone shooters, I try to differentiate and search for unique angles for my photos. And I want to bring specific details and compositions on the photos.

2019-05-26 THE WINE-CITY RETZ

By |2019-05-25T20:33:28+01:00May 26th, 2019|Austria|

The city of Retz is famous for wine and pumpkins. On the central plaza stands a church in the middle. Beneath the church is a down-stairs entry to the wine-cellars of Retz. They are an underground extravaganza, which tunnels under kilometers of the historical city center. Better go with a guide, nobody wants to get lost in the dark cellars.

2019-05-22 WOODEN ROOM WITH DEER ANTLERS

By |2019-05-20T20:27:07+01:00May 22nd, 2019|Austria|

I was visiting with my brother Christian the Eckartsau Castle. This is the location for his wedding, two weeks before we were visiting the premises to get a feel for the different rooms, where the wedding will take place. Very important to me, I will be the wedding photographer. Good preparation is the key to successful projects. In my mind, I formed already my shooting locations. The castle is rich in history, it was the hunting chateau of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria.

2019-05-09 THE MYSTERY CASTLE WITH THE PICTURE GALLERY

By |2019-05-08T19:48:53+01:00May 9th, 2019|Austria|

I can not remember in which castle I took the picture, but it was in Lower Austria. Anyway, it would be the best place to shoot a suspense thriller: enchanted rooms where people disappear, the perfect scenery for goosebumps in the cinema. Take your girlfriend with you and go through the castle; she will need a protector for sure.

Lake Neusiedl is a steppe lake between Austria and Hungary. This lake is only 1.5 meters deep with a muddy underground, very popular with kite surfers and sailors. Many visitors use the first warm summer days with a drink at the beach bars of the villages Weiden or Neusiedl am See.

2019-03-27 RUIN ON THE ROCKS

By |2019-03-26T22:04:29+01:00March 27th, 2019|Austria|

My parents are fans of the Dürnstein Castle, in the Wachau. The castle was built in 1192; nowadays the castle is a ruin. There is a half an hour walk uphill from the village Dürmstein to the ruin. Once a year I walk the tour with my parents. From the walls of the ruin you get a beautiful view of the UNESCO world heritage Wachau.
