A Fotoworkshop


Renaissanceschloss Greillenstein, 70 miles northwest of Vienna,
is a wonderful place for a photo workshop!


We were welcomed by the freaky sphinx's child:
"Tell me, mom, who's that, what are they doing here?"


A photo class from Vienna,
in search of the perfect motive and the right lense :))


Practice, practice, practice, the whole afternoon!


Perfect angles, apertures, exposure times,
focal points, composition and special effects and... the right light!





In the late afternoon we left for another shooting place.


GPS and Günter Grüner, our trainer, helped us find our way in a countryside with many small winding roads and rolling hills.


Finally we found the right place, and look, what a golden sunset!




So long, lovely Waldviertel!


Best thanks to Günter Grüner, our great coach!
