2018-07-30   DANUBE FROM ABOVE

By | 2018-07-30T19:07:36+00:00 July 30th, 2018|Austria|

I looked after an appropriate starting place for my DJI Phantom 4 Pro quadcopter. On a meadow between wine gardens I found it, and within five minutes I was ready to fly. The River Danube embedded in the beautiful landscape of the Wachau gave a likable motive for a drone photo. A historical and culturally exciting area with castles, ruins and old wine villages.

2018-07-23   TERRACES IN LOWER AUSTRIA

By | 2018-07-23T21:33:31+00:00 July 23rd, 2018|Austria|

The highest mountain in northern Lower Austria is named Manhartsberg, and its height is about 500 meters. On the mountain top, there is a perfect plateau for starting quadcopters. You have the whole land with many terraces and fields under you, perfect for some drone photos.

By | 2018-07-18T19:37:59+00:00 July 18th, 2018|Austria|

Velden at the Wörthersee is a special place for vacation. The lake has drinking water quality, a lake promenade for a relaxing evening walk, and street musicians and artists which present their performance. For the revelers, there is a casino and a disco-club with lounge to turn the night to day.

2018-06-19   OLD WINE HOUSES IN FALKENSTEIN

By | 2018-06-18T21:13:25+00:00 June 19th, 2018|Austria|

I was walking with my brother on this historical street which is hemmed by old wine houses on both sides. Wine houses are a cultural tradition in Lower Austria’s Weinviertel, an area which lives from wine and tourists. Famous wine types are Green Veltliner, Riesling, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. The barrels reside in the cellars of these wine houses and can ripen to perfection.

2018-06-11   WEISSENKIRCHEN AT THE DANUBE

By | 2018-06-11T20:39:28+00:00 June 11th, 2018|Austria|

I made a one-day-trip to the beautiful terrace-landscape of the Wachau, where three neat villages named Dürnstein, Weissenkirchen, and Spitz lie at the river Danube. The old town of Weissenkrichen brought some photo opportunities where I could capture the special houses which date back to the 17th century. Besides this, the photo is a good example of the nice Leica colors.

2018-06-02   VIEW FROM RUIN FALKENSTEIN

By | 2018-06-01T19:42:58+00:00 June 2nd, 2018|Austria|

The view from ruin Falkenstein, a rural area of Lower Austria. Near the town Laa, where my brother with his girlfriend lives. Since it was late afternoon, we used the car up to the ruin, instead of walking for 1 hour.  🙂

2018-05-19   OLD WINE HOUSES IN LOWER AUSTRIA

By | 2018-05-17T19:31:08+00:00 May 19th, 2018|Austria|

I visited my brother and his girlfriend in a town called Falkenstein. It lies in an area with many wineries and a hill with a ruin on top. A unique visiting hotspot is the wine routes with little wine houses. Each of these has a cellar where you can find hogsheads, mostly built from wood.

2018-04-28   CHURCH IN SPRING

By | 2018-04-28T10:01:43+00:00 April 28th, 2018|Austria|

At a walking tour in Weissenkirchen, a little village in Lower Austria, I did that shot of the church which dates back to the 13th century. Since I had lower back pain, which resulted from some exercises in the fitness center, my camera of the day was Leica X Vario, which is easy to carry with an exceptional photo quality.

2018-04-17   THE LAKE WITH THE PLEASANT SURROUNDINGS

By | 2018-04-14T16:41:21+00:00 April 17th, 2018|Austria|

The Wörther See is my favorite lake in Austria. The surroundings are pleasant, mostly mixed forest, one part with more conifers on the Northern side, the Southern side with more broadleaf forest and some rocks. I took a lake circumnavigation with a two-person electro scooter from Renault, named TWIZY. It was great fun, although the vehicle stopped at 70 km/ (45 mph), because the maximum speed was reached.

2018-04-12   THE DANUBE FROM ABOVE

By | 2018-04-10T19:53:33+00:00 April 12th, 2018|Austria|

Although it was windy, I took out my DJI Phantom 4 Pro. I parked at the roadside and went into the greenery to find a starting space. I found a very flat area near an irrigation path. It was a relatively short flying session, because of the wind but enough to take some shots of the Danube in the Wachau in Austria. This region reminds me of the Tuscany, with its terraces and viticulture, its trees and plants.
