Moments before the sun rises
over the roofs of Vienna
illuminated by the morning light
while the trees lining the diagonal avenues
still linger in the mist and shadows of the night
while the sun rises
slowly in the east
22 August 2012
shortly after 6 AM
at Schönbrunn Park

What a lovely spot to watch the sun come up.ReplyDelete
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.
Beautiful photos, Merisi, specially the fountain in the parkReplyDelete
and the trees lining the diagonal avenues!
Sublime it is, Merisi! What a gorgeous place! I would love to visit there -- along with so many of the places you share with us! Beautiful fountain and lovely skies as well! Terrific post for the day! Thanks for sharing!!ReplyDelete
Terribly romantic isn't it?ReplyDelete
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!
When I saw the park, the trees were still bare. It must be lush and beautiful at this time of year.ReplyDelete
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).ReplyDelete
thanks for sharing your world:)ReplyDelete
Beautiful morning views of Vienna! Especially love the view of that grand palace!ReplyDelete
Elegance, such elegance your city has! I'm in Berlin this week, so perhaps that's why the contrast is striking me particularly.ReplyDelete
(And golly, yes, you are an early riser - though I guess you beat the heat that way?)
Such a gorgeous sky you have this week.ReplyDelete
My Sky Shots.
Have a great weekend.
It must be wonderful to witness the sun rise over such a beautiful city. Thank you for sharing.ReplyDelete
It's one of my favorite places in Vienna. Beautiful!ReplyDelete
Such beauty, just such beauty...we have lovely buildings here, yet nothing to compare to the beauty you have shared~ReplyDelete
Wow, the palace shot is fabulous! Neat SkyWatch!ReplyDelete
Thanks for getting up so early so we could enjoy these marvelous shots!ReplyDelete
