Travelling trough Austria consists in large parts of wandering trough valleys and lakes framed by endless mountains. And occasionally also of climbing one. That’s exactly what we did two weeks ago when we went up Mt. Schoberstein (something over 1,000 Meters). Not the tallest one by far but one with a marvelous view on the lakes of the Salzkammergut (in particular Lake Attersee and Lake Mondsee). Afterwards I continued by journey to another famous lake, the Traunsee, where I had the opportunity to take part in a boat ride across the lake passing by the equally famous Mt. Traunstein.
The pictures shot these days I want to present you in two posts. No particular order. Hope to sparkle some enthusiasm for the Alps! 🙂
These shots are from my visit to the Styrian capital of Graz last week. I played around with light and perspective in analogue as well in digital “postproduction”. The first shot is showcasing the so called love chains on the main bridge above the river Mur. On the right side you see the green city hill “Schlossberg”. The second picture shows the city hall in B&W.
These were taken in the “Rüstkammer”, the largest depot of medieval armory world wide. As I have not planned the visit I was not sure what to expect. But the museums turned out to be pretty interesting and great as subject for photography.
Recently I came back from Malta where I had the pleasure to work for a language school. There was not much time for photography, but still there are some shots I want to share with you.
Update August 12th: Added two more shots.
