Sky Watch Friday - Horizon


The most thrilling thing about walking towards a horizon is the uncertainty of what is to be expected behind it.


Here is more of SWF!

Hallo Maria,
am liebsten mag ich die "etwas anderen" Bilder.
Ich hoffe, dass sich der kleine Baum noch lange gegen den Wind behauten kann.
Wünsche dir weitere schöne Spaziergänge.

Grüsse

Hallo! Where is this? I am so late to see your blog, sorry.

I was not able to talk to the guy with the flute, so I didnt know about the dog either, thanks for pointing that out! Happy weekend!

The bear went over the mountain to see what he could see.
And what he could see was the other side of the Mountain.
The thrill of the unexpected. teehee. MB

Maria: Very cool SWF capture om the rise.

Hi again! An introduction...=D

I came to Vienna in 2002 and since I am a photographer back in the Philippines, I continued doing it as a hobby taking photographs of anything in the city...The photos I am posting at Vienna Daily could then be from 2002 to present =) I joined the City Daily Blogs this year only (january to begin)...

It is seldom for me to go to the city center because I feel too crowded when I'm there, and that I have 3 kids is not so easy, but we got lots of photo opportunity whenever we're there...Hope you are having a good time. Schönes wochenende!
