Sky Watch Friday - Morning sun





Hi friends, this is a look at Vienna's St. Stephen's Cathedral,
looking up on a wonderful winter morning,
with yellow morning light,
and with a passenger recommending me to turn around and look back
and take a picture from the other side of the dome
with a still more beautiful view,
and then meeting some dome priests
looking at me taking the pictures of the dome
smiling at me...
A beautiful morning!

It pays to look up into the sky from time to time,
HERE all aroung the globe!

What a wonderful cathedral: gargoyles are a favourite of mine, and I love the way the light is shining on the trim.

Beautiful! Happy SWF!

I was there back in 1995, and have a friend who is a hydrologist in Vienna. It's a beautiful city and I hope to return some day.

Denise said...

Wonderful Maria, the more you introduce us to Vienna in these marvellous photographs, the more I want to see it for myself one day. You are a great ambassador for Austria :)

Brenda said...

Absolutely, completely, glorious Miz Maria!

Lovely photos, and the best are those with the gargoyles. Very detailed work in the masonry.

Hallo Maria! Again great pictures from you - and you have so many great buildings in your country! Thanks for sharing - and have a nice weekend!

Strange statues to decorate a church!
But I agree with Denise: we're all going to visit Vienna soon...!

Maria said...

Hi Marina, Denis, Robert, this will be a great fun when you come to Vienna! I'd love to meet you in person!

I'm glad you have sun there. In here finally Winter came. It's very cold and the sun has gone away.
Have a good weekend.

Maria, these are wonderful photos. The difference between the first and second photos as the light grows and the wonderful details of the gargoyles as well as the other stone carving and roof tiles. Topped off by smiling priests! Wow!

Gretchen said...

What an interesting building! Very different gargoyles. Happy SWF!

Glückskind du, dass du Advent- und Weihnachtszeit an einem so schönen Ort mit reicher Tradition verbringen kannst. Danke auch dir für deinen Besuch bei meinem Blog - ich weiss nicht, ob du meine Antwort auf deine Frage gesehen hast. Mein Deutsch rührt daher, dass ich den Schweizern vom Karren gesprungen bin.
Erfreue dich des wunderbaren Himmels und sei herzlich gegrüsst.

Lovely photo for Skywatch and the cathedral's interesting. I like the way that morning light falls onto the stone..
