While cleaning up my HD I found a complete directory of unprocessed NEFs from Sept./Oct. 2003 which I have obviously overlooked. I picked out four of them to give you an idea what the area looks like where I grew up.
All shot with D1X and Sigma 70-200

Although spring has arrived, I hope you enjoy a few pics from early autumn.

Thanks Gale! No idea why the first one didn't work.
Another try

Harris, you ruin my idea of winter sports and snow with these extraordinary images... Where were these taken? I know byhand Arlberg Mountain, Salzburg, the Zillertal Valley, Obergurgl, Kitzsteinhorn/Kaprun, Wien of course... but these "French looking" vine fields... :shock:

These were taken in the far northeast of Austria. The province of Lower Austria which "circumflects" Vienna is subdivided into 4 quarters. The most northeastern one is called "Wine-quarter" (sic!) and is characterized by rolling hills with a lot of fields and interspersed patches of forest, but also some steppe areas and swamps. It is one of Austria's four famous Wine areas. I am not so fond of the local white wines (with a few exceptions) but there are some decent red ones.

A friend of mine even discovered another use for the wine plants:
Have you ever smelled the endearing fragrance of wine flowers? He is producing a parfume from them and it quickly became my favorite.

Harry,
Thanks for sharing these wonderful, unusual pictures.

I live in Florida and we don't have scenes like these so these are a special treat for me.

Thank you,
Gaye

Thanks Gaye! I am sure Florida has a lot of other scenery to be proud of.
