Fall at the Lake

There is a small town situated at a dark and deep lake in the middle of Austria. If you visit this town called Hallstatt, you will find a most idyllic place, preserved and protected from the changes of time.

Try to visit it late in the day to avoid the tourist buses and walk the small path above the main lake esplanade, then you might still catch the mystic beauty of this place.

 

 

Lost Horizon Country

Nepal is a country of extremes. Snow-capped mountain ranges, tropical jungles, lush vegetation during monsoon season, colourful prayer flags flying in the wind – impressions even the experienced traveller will never forget…

Alpine Beauty

Hiking in the “Dachstein” region is just amazing – no wonder this part of Austria belongs to the world heritage sites. And if you´re not into hiking, you simply take the cable car uphill…

 

Rainy Day at the Lakeside

There is a beautiful little village at the “Traunsee”, called “Traunkirchen”, which I like to visit all year round.

Although it’s very nice there in summer, when you enjoy the cool breeze from the cold lake, only on a rainy day you will find this kind of mystical atmosphere…

Frozen Beauty

I have been strolling through town today with my camera and took these pictures of the frozen beauty. Even the colour palette looks cold…

Mystical Late Autumn Landscape

I haven’t been blogging for ages. The reason is that I took on a new job. Besides teaching languages, I’m also teaching art at a secondary school, which means a lot of fun and creative ideas but also some challenge since I’m quite new to teaching this subject.

Before I went to school yesterday I took these pictures of the nearby `Hallstättersee´, a place well known for its famous town Hallstatt and surrounding high mountains.

At this time of the year it’s not very busy there but the place still conveys its mystical, wild beauty.

Lush Nature

Although it has been raining a bit all day I went out and took some shots of the lush
vegetation after this refreshing summer rain.

 

 

 

Beauty in the Detail

Whenever I go hiking I take my camera with me.

Sometimes I’m lucky to catch some beautiful details like these…
