Waiting for Sunrise
at Vienna's Schönbrunn Park

View of the Gloriette
Moments before the sun rises
over the roofs of Vienna

A fountain in the park
illuminated by the morning light
while the trees lining the diagonal avenues
still linger in the mist and shadows of the night

Schönbrunn Palace
while the sun rises
slowly in the east

  2. Sublime, Merisi.

    What lucky folks we are to be able to see a new day begin in such magnificent surroundings. I particularly admire the green cloaked photo featuring the fountain.

    My mind began to wander down that tree lined pathway.

  5. Terribly romantic isn't it?
    And such a long way off..
    One would need a knight in shining armour to carry one off to ze castle.
    Walking is out of ze question!

  6. When I saw the park, the trees were still bare. It must be lush and beautiful at this time of year.

  8. Wow, you are an early bird!!! I have to get up at 6 a.m., but I could never take a walk at this time of the day (for me it still feels like night).

  11. Elegance, such elegance your city has! I'm in Berlin this week, so perhaps that's why the contrast is striking me particularly.
    (And golly, yes, you are an early riser - though I guess you beat the heat that way?)
