Autumn in Vienna
Prince Eugene's Belvedere Gardens

Gardens of the Belvedere
The extensive gardens between Prince Eugene's
Lower and Upper Belvedere Palaces

I love the corner with the labyrinth-like rooms
that open up and close behind you,
depending on which path you chose
to walk - or hide - when crossing
the grounds between the palaces

These garden chambers
are enchanting throughout the seasons,
but their allure is especially irresistible
in late October

when most leaves have changed colour,
from inspired lemony to warm golden yellows,
with a tinge of timid apricot thrown in,
yet also hold on to soft fragile green,
as if not wanting to let go
of summer's memories


in the late afternoon
of the 27th of October, 2010

  1. Beautiful autumnal pictures!

  2. You're on a roll, Merisi. I can't quite place precisely what you're doing differently, but whatever it is, it's very good.

  3. Almost a fantasy image. Love the wall of vines with the blue wall in the background.

  4. Your images are a feast for the eyes and soul. I'm loving how you're developing variations on different themes. And the Cafe Kandinsky of earlier this week I'd love to blow up into a poster!

  5. I like very much your automne and yours skies!!!!
    Happy sunday!

  6. That second image is gorgeous. I LOVE the contrast of faded blueish and gray in the center of all that green.

  7. Beautiful ... the curtain of leaves looks like lace!
