SWF - Some random shots of Vienna's sky

In the evening I leave downtown Vienna (1, Lugeck) and walk towards the Danube passing by the Riesenrad in Vienna's Prater.
As a passionate skywatcher I notice that the sky turns from evening blue into dark night bleu :)

Aha, so you know the Riesenrad from the Third Man?
More skies, brighter skies:

Two fantastic shots. The first really gets my attention. The shape of that building is so interesting in the capture.

What an interesting building, I know it's all about the sky and here I am more focused on the building on the first image.

Wonderful, both of them! :)

Love the first shot! Such a blue sky, a perfect background to the interesting house! And the angel is great!

The second - scares the hell out of me! Have been in one of those once, and never more! And I live on top of a 13 floor building!

Lovely pictures from very different angles. The first one looks like a blue "Australian" sky as it is so intense in colour. Does that mean spring is around the corner? Have a great weekend, Maria.

Wonderful shots!
I love the detail on the building overhang - that was a great notice to catch.
The ferris wheel - LOVE it! I've been a fan of them since childhood. You really captured a great night shot.

I remember the Riesenrad from taking the children on it and surveying your beautiful city with hot 'Maroni' in our hands.
Great pic.
