2019-09-22 MOUNTAIN HUT ON THE RAX

By |2019-09-21T19:58:12+01:00September 22nd, 2019|Austria|

After a long march on the mountain plateau, we look forward to stopping in the mountain hut. There were hearty meals such as ploughman’s lunch and roast pork. For dessert we ordered a Germknödel, this is a fluffy yeast duff dumpling. A classic meal in the Austrian mountains.

2019-08-30 FIELDS BEFORE THE HARVEST

By |2019-08-28T20:05:31+01:00August 30th, 2019|Austria|

I was happy to have another opportunity to unpack my drone and fly. I was with my wife Karin in the Waldviertel, an area that lives from agriculture and forestry. I was able to shoot a typical picture, with farmyards nestled between cornfields.

2019-08-16 POPPY FIELD IN THE WALDVIERTEL

By |2019-08-15T08:41:28+01:00August 15th, 2019|Austria|

The Waldviertel, a region in Lower Austria, is renowned for its beautiful poppy fields. Poppyseed strudel, poppy tents, and poppy noodles are the specialties you get there. Neat villages are located between the fields. As it is only an hour’s drive from Vienna, I will visit the area more often now.

2019-08-10 MY DAUGHTER ON THE MOUNTAINS

By |2019-08-10T05:56:28+01:00August 10th, 2019|Austria|

My daughter Cara and I visited my father at a therapy center, where he recovered from his knee surgery. We took the cable car to the Rax and hiked there all afternoon on the plateau at 2000 meters. Good mountain air and pure nature at this altitude, a great experience to be on a mountain again.

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.
