Yet another frosty image from the flat eastern part of Austria! The lack of snow this winter, together with freezing temperatures, poses a problem to farmers. The winter grains have no protection from the cold, and there will be very little moisture in the ground in spring, as there is no snow to melt. But winter isn't over yet, and snow may still come.
while peacefully grazing, these cows enjoy a glorious view of the alps in salzburg province, austria, on a lovely and mellow autumn day.
the mountains in the image are part of the 'northern limestone alps'; 'tennengebirge' on the left, 'hagengebirge' on the right. the gap between them, in the centre of the picture, is the gorge of the river salzach. come back for some views from the gorge in the next days ...
On the left you see what the athletes see before they schuss down the ramp and then sail through the air for more than 120 m. in front of their eyes all the time is the cemetery of Wilten Abbey! i wonder what that feels like ...
On the right you see the tower, the ramp and the landing slope, with the cabins for the judges on the left and those for the commentators on the right. the stadium holds 26,000 people and is usually packed during major competitions.
Eisvogel - this shot is a digiscopie !
It was a special experience to photograph this little hunk. They are normally very shy. I had my photo stuff stowed securely in the bike trailer. The tripod had placed the telescope with camera attached to it. Then he waited until I could take this picture.Photography is simply a matter of luck.
Haflinger horses on an alpine pasture above the village of serfaus in western tirol.
Haflinger horses are a breed developed in austria during the late 19th century. haflinger horses are relatively small, always chestnut in color, and well-muscled yet elegant. they have distinctive gaits described as energetic but smooth. the name "haflinger" comes from the village of hafling, which today is in northern italy. they are also called the avelignese, from the italian word for hafling.
this is the church at the monastery of st. florian near linz. it was my first visit to this majestic baroque building, one of the finest in the country, and as expected i was very much impressed (although baroque is not really my favourite architectural style ...).
st. florian is well-known as the place where romantic composer anton bruckner worked and lived. he is buried beneath the organ that bears his name.
La nature est tellement belle que j’essaie de la copier, pour continuer à l’admirer à l’aise après, aussi je la photographie. Je suis loin d’être une artiste et mes photos ne répondent pas aux critères des « bonnes photos ». Elles me plaisent ainsi. Surtout parce qu’elles ne sont pas parfaites. Aussi j’accepte les commentaires et critiques qui me permettront de m’améliorer surtout dans les éventuelles identifications.
one night in february, irene and i "cashed in" on a christmas present - a night at vienna's natural history museum, including a fish and seafood dinner under the cupola, and a guided tour to the roof of the museum.
looking down at the first floor lobby, the "dining room" for the night, from the balcony in the cupola. you can look straight down to the ground floor through the circular "hole" in the floor. our table for two was right at the balustrade, almost at the centre of the hall.
in bygone days, when coffin burials were not yet common, a deceased person was usually laid out in their own home, tied to a long plank, which was then used to carry them to the graveyard. the corpse was either buried with the plank, or slid down into the grave using the plank.
these planks are mounted to the wall of a barn in a museum village today. i'd had no idea that this practice was once used in austria, though i knew it from romania.
Firewood skillfully stacked along the stable wall
as both the balcony and the roof jut out from the vertical, the wood is safe from the autumn rain and the winter snow.
every farmer also owned some acres of woodland that he could use for his own purposes. lumbering and 'making firewood' was a typical activity for the winter months, when it was too cold to work in the fields.

There was a beautiful unusual weather that day at this altitude...from fully sunny in one direction, to heavy snow storm with patches of sunlit areas in another direction, and to completely covered in low clouds and fog in other direction...pretty much a mix of everything!
Karlskirche (St. Charles's Church) is a baroque church located on the south side of Karlsplatz in Vienna, Austria...
i spent one evening there, sitting around the pond and taking quite a few shots... i was lucky enough for people to leave the water quite undisturbed so the reflections came through very still - like a mirror...
