World Heritage Region

Walking around the “Altausseer See” I took these pictures of the frozen lake and the surrounding forest. It was a sunny, even warm winter day and one could hear the sound of the melting ice of the lake.

I think you can easily see why this beautiful region is under protection…

 

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.
