Sky Watch Friday - Autumn Sunset







After work, my skywalking friend Brigitte and me took the train to Langenzersdorf ( a few miles NW of Vienna).
After a 15 minutes' ride we arrived at Bisamberg, a hill only 200 meters high, but steep,
with an adorable view over the river Danube and the rolling hills of the Vienna Woods.
After a two and a half hours' walk, the whole week fell off from us and we felt reborn!

Visit Skywatchers all around the globe!

Alle diese herbstlichen photos sind sehr schoen. Die Tage werden kuerzer und kuehler aber die Natur bleibt zum Bewundern. Das war ein schoener Lauf um den Abend abzuschliessen. LG. T.

The hill that leads to the Sky roof. Nice view, pleasant to realize that so close to Capitals one can find nature, woods, open spaces to regenerate oneself.

Marie Reed said...

I have been in the neighbourhood, on a five hours hike around Bisamberg, starting from Stammersdorf, end station of Tram 31. Loved it!

i love the first shot. gloomy skies above... shadowy lands below and a sun that's waving goodbye showing us his last light of the day. as if telling us 'don't worry, it's gonna be brighter one tomorrow!"

Roses and stuff said...

Fantastic colouring of the sky!
Have a nice weekend!
