Autumnal Impressions

On the mountains the changes of autumn can already be seen…

 

 

 

Baroque Beauty in Bloom

We’ve got a beautiful baroque castle here in Salzburg, called Hellbrunn.

In former times the emperors used it for refreshment in summer. Today you can still visit their pleasant gardens and ponds.

Awakening Nature

Strolling through a forest in spring is always inspiring, especially when you look at nature with a macro lens. These are some of my experiments…

New Close-ups

Since I got myself a Christmas present, a new macro lens for my camera, I couldn’t wait to try it out as soon as possible…

 

 

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.

 

 

Eternal Art inside the Ice Cave

There is a giant ice cave located right in the middle of Austria, very close to the world- famous town Hallstatt.
The structures and sculptures nature has created here are simply amazing…

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…

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.
