Sky Watch Friday





Watching the clouds, catching the moon,
visiting St. Stephen's Cathedral and Millennium Tower,
greeting the gargoyles -
that's what's up in Vienna's sky today.

Love the sun drenched gargoyles, the cathedral tower with its new, so well placed extension and your laughing Viennese sky.
All very beautiful.

Wie sehr die Sonne doch das Gemuet beeinflusst!

Arija said...

Oops, I missed out the moon, so neatly cupped in the crook of the lamp post's elbow.

All are beautiful, but my favourite is the church? with the figurines and the masoned edges and spirals, it must be a truly beautiful building.

Hi Maria :)

Lovely photos!

The photo of the Cathedral is a treat to watch.

Huge, captivating, amazing architecture, awe inspiring looks.



A befitting tribute to God,Almighty. What can humans do without God's blessings?

It looks like some renovation work is going on with that tall crane positioned there.

Thanks for sharing.

Have a lovely day:)
