Spanish Riding School

Morning exercises for the Lipizzaner stallions at the Spanish Riding School, in the Imperial Hofburg complex, Vienna, Austria. This was my wife Deryn’s highlight of our Vienna sojourn.


“No photographs permitted during the exercises”, boomed the public address system and security patrolled up and down, eyeing me and others suspiciously, and swooping on unfortunates who hauled out cell phones. Sitting nonchalantly I held the camera between my thighs and without looking squeezed off a couple of shots through the stone balustrade.


You can see the stone knobblies in the image!
