I tried to catch the mystic of the mountainous Salzkammergut region by using only black artist brushpens and a bit of ink…
It’s early May but some mountain tops are still covered with a small layer of snow…but as soon as you walk down to the valley the warm spring sunshine is awaiting you!
On this warm spring day I went on the first hiking tour of the season.
The region we went to is of immense natural beauty with its deep blue lakes and snow-capped mountains.
It also has a tradition of salt-mining from which it derived its name “Salzkammergut”.
Having bought a macro lens for my camera, I wanted to try it out as soon as possible.
This winter holiday we’re not going anywhere so we have just been walking around taking pictures of the beautiful nature surrounding as here in Austria.
Nature’s beauty can be seen in every little detail…
It’s nearly December now but the weather resembles more the sunny days of September!
Going on a hiking tour (probably the last one for the season) I took some pictures of the beautiful countryside.
The clear blue lake is called ‘Fuschlsee’ and is known for its drinking water quality!
Today we walked up to a beautiful small mountain lake and took some pictures on our way…
I find being surrounded by nature always inspiring.
The lush vegetation, the sounds of a creek, the humming of insects, the beauty of unspoilt lakes and forests …
