MWT - Vienna's Prater

Some views from Vienna's historic amusement park, the Prater.

I love the early evening hours in the Prater very much,
when the first lights begin to shine
against a soft blue sky.

On the merry-go -round and the roller coaster you are really close to the sky!
Did you enlarge the second picture?

I love going to theme parks not for the ride (am scared of them) but for the photo op it gives. Have a great week.
