winter in upper austria

“Language... has created the word "loneliness" to express the pain of being alone. And it has created the word "solitude" to express the glory of being alone.”


Paul Tillich (German born American Theologian and Philosopher, whose discussions of God and faith illuminated and bound together the realms of traditional Christianity and modern culture. 1886-1965)

Good morning Sunshine! It was very welcome as it was a chilly 39F that morning at 5:15 AM. As I walked back to the car an hour later (sunrise was at 5:50) it had warmed up to a whooping 43F. Unfortunately the wind also had picked up, so it felt colder than before. And the temperature didn't change much throughout the day as soon after I took this it started raining and didn't stop until 4:00 in the afternoon. That didn't stop me though. I still went hiking. Booya!!!

Nur zu rasten, zu lieben,

still an sich selber zu baun,

fühlt sich die Seele getrieben

und mit Liebe zu schaun.


Jedem leisen Verfärben

lausch ich mit stillem Bemühn,

jedem Wachsen und Sterben,

jedem Welken und Blühn.


Ausschnitt aus Emanuel Geibels (1815 - 1884) „Herbstlich sonnige Tage“


Now my mind can endeavor

resting and loving for me,

changing my person forever,

comforting all that I see.


Softly let me attend to

changing colors at night:

Wilting, dying is near you

after blooming so bright.

Austria is full of castles. Some are ruins, others refurbished, nice and shiny. Some are cosy countryside chateaux, others enormous fortresses. Some are open to the public, some (surprisingly many) are still owned by the families that once built them.

One of the most interesting ruins I can reach in some minutes is the Prandegg Ruin, in earlier times the second greatest fortress of Upper Austria with an area of 2435 square meters.

It´s always an amazing adventure to stroll through it.


Not much editing here - just a bit more contrast than the original RAW-file. The dark blue mood looked really great for a few minutes.

Sonnenaufgang am Hinteren Langbathsee. Die Langbathseen, der Vordere und der Hintere Langbathsee, liegen 8 Kilometer westlich von Ebensee (Salzkammergut) am Fuße des Höllengebirges. Die Langbathseen sind ein beliebtes Ausflugsziel im Sommer mit Naturbadestränden und Wassertemperaturen bis zu 24°C.


Sunrise at the "Hinterer Langbathsee". The Langbathseen are two mountain lakes (Vorderer Langbathsee and Hinterer Langbathsee) in Upper Austria's part of the Salzkammergut, 8 kilometers (5.0 mi) from Ebensee. Both lakes are a popular destination during the summer months, having natural beaches and water temperatures up to 24°C. The Vorderer Langbathsee also boasts excellent visibility, making it a popular diving site.

Klaus Nomi, was a German countertenor noted for his wide vocal range and an unusual, otherworldly stage persona.

His bizarrely visionary theatrical live performances, heavy make-up, unusual costumes, and a highly stylized signature hairdo which flaunted a receding hairline made him to one of the most remarkable artists when I was a young girl.

Nomi died in 1983 at the age of 39 as a result of complications from AIDS.

For me still Klaus Nomi is one of the best and most interesting artists and till today I´m sad about his early death.

Nomi sings the air of the cold genius from Purcell's "King Arthur"

Die Almtalter Sonnenuhr bietet den perfekten Rahmen für den Almsee. Nur die Natur ist im Stande solch eindrucksvolle Landschaften zu erschaffen. Ich bin jedesmal wieder aufs neue beeindruckt über diese atemberaubende Kulisse.


"The camera doesn't make a bit of difference. All of them can record what you are seeing. But, you have to SEE."

The Austrian photographer Ernst Haas made this comment in a workshop 1985.

I think he is right...
