-> Franz Schubert and Schloss Ochsenburg @ "Franz Peter Schubert":
"Many Schubertiades were organised, they frequented cafes and gardens outside Vienna, or made longer excursions into the country. It was a happy time for Schubert. One of these latter was to the Schloss Ochsenburg, and here Schubert passed the autumn months of the year 1821"
(Quoted from the "Franz Peter Schubert" homepage, linked above)

  1. Wonderful photo Merisi. I love everything: the perspective but also the sky with different colors and those clouds lines.

    1. Grazie, Fabriziio!
      The castle stands high up on a hill and the view is simply breathtaking.

  2. Oh, I really want to sit on that bench and just gaze at the scenery.
    It's gorgeous. The sky, snow capped mountains and peace.
    Thanks for sharing.

      We'll have to wait for the warmer seasons, though, to sit down there, temperatures are freezing right now.
