    1. Oh yes, I stopped, Elisabeth!
      This is the stop just before the Weyregg am Attersee exit. It's only parking and restroom facilities.

    1. I'd guess most of it is gone by now, the last three days have been unseasonally mild in that area.

  8. Love the smoke in your captures. Somehow it says it solidifies the idea of early morning. I also appreciated how soft the red from the chimney is!

    1. Sandi,
      as far as I know this is a district heating central plant, using renewable biomass fuel to provide thermal energy for thousands of homes, leaving a much smaller carbon footprint and better air quality than heating each of these homes individually with finite resources like petroleum, natural gas, or coal.
