Lost and found - a glimpses from my home regio

Discussion in 'Landscapes, Architecture, and Cityscapes' started by Harry S., Mar 23, 2005.

  1. 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.

  4. WOW, very nice!! :)  :)  :)  :) 
     
  5. Lovely shots. Interesting that they could just as well have been taken in the wine country of Napa Valley, California. I have visited Austria and it is very beautiful there.

  7. 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:
     
  8. Thanks all so far!

    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.
    cheers

    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
     
  10. Thanks Gaye! I am sure Florida has a lot of other scenery to be proud of.
     
  11. Wow, Harris, you just won a seat in my car as a field guide and a friend next time I visit your beloved country!!! :D
