Shooting the Freeze at High Noon
Vienna in Winter

The Sunshine Girls
I asked permission to take a picture.
They were enjoying the sunshine
sitting outdoors
on a "Rosenbank"
in subzero weather.
Where else,
but in Vienna?

Photographed today at noon
in Vienna's Rose Garden

  3. Wow!! I´m not able to sit outside in the freezing cold. Not even for a minute!

  4. Hi Merisi, Are those Tree Roses wrapped up to protect them from the cold?
    That's how those cute ladies get those rosy cheeks... they sit outside in the sunshine.

  5. lovely picture Merisi of smiles in the cold. The views around the city are so lovely, even snow & ice will not stop a pause for enjoyment.

    Best wishes from a snowy Oxford.
