Coach tour in Lermoos

Coach trip in Lermoos, Austria

The coach tour started on a rainy afternoon. Sitting on a coach on a cold day doesn’t sound that cozy but on the other hand they offered an intriguing add-on: There would be a wine tasting. Ok, that sounds heart-warming, doesn’t it?

A good travel photo is about emotions

Landscape near Kroatisch-Minihof, Austria

Glancing through my photos of my latest trip in Burgenland I came across this photo. I took it from my room’s window early in the morning. Immediately I got the emotion from that morning again.

This silence. This beauty.

For me a good travel photo is about emotions. It would not only describes the place the photographer had been. To a greater degree it would catch the emotions the photographer had at that place.

What do you think?

Silence in Burgenland

After staying a night in the attic of a former border station (‘Altes Zollhaus’) I had this great view from my room early in the morning. There was a kind of silence in the scenery. Only a rooster crewed from time to time.
