  14. Very beatiful sky pictures - specially those with the moon and the star! Like it very much.
    (I spent some hours in Vienna on our journey home from Israel last march. Took a cab into the center of the city and walked around with my husband. Saw the Stephansdomen and the Spanish rideshcool and got a first impression of the city. Would like to go back and see more!)
