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…
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…
I have been strolling through town today with my camera and took these pictures of the frozen beauty. Even the colour palette looks cold…
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.
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.
Whenever I go hiking I take my camera with me.
Sometimes I’m lucky to catch some beautiful details like these…
Since I got myself a macro lens for my camera I can’t stop taking pictures of all the lovely details of flowers and plants. These are my latest.
While I was walking around my favourite lake “Eibensee” near my home town today I took some pictures of the blooming nature.
These flowers might not be as colourful and lush like tulips or roses, but they have their own wild beauty.
If you wonder about the bottle cap, this seems to be a remnant of someone’s picnic at the lake including typical Austrian beer…:-)
