has arrived at
Vienna's Rose Garden.
The National Theater building
still retains the faint golden glow
of the sun's last rays
sinking fast behind the tree tops,
giving free reign
to atmospheric blues
before dusk falls
A sea of roses
one last rearing up
as twilight gives way
to dove-grey dusk

Still very rich with flowers, even on the brink of autumn.ReplyDelete
Such lovely flowers and such a beautiful place, Merisi, and your photos are wonderful!! Thanks for sharing!!ReplyDelete
Tis blue and beautiful, such a mysterious soft light.ReplyDelete
Lovely! And those roses.ReplyDelete
I spotted yesterday the two last roses in my garden... the autumn has arrived!ReplyDelete
Merisi, the blue hour is surely enhanced by those lingering roses.ReplyDelete
Over here, as I walk around the city, I notice that rose time is now sharply tapering. Last night the apartment's radiators even clicked into service. And it's not even October.
I've meant to mention to you that I recently read The Ocean at the End of the Lane, and did find myself caught up in that book's special world. Thank you for the introduction.
Magnificent...the view, the images, the writing, all radiant~ReplyDelete
Love me some fountains.ReplyDelete
L'heure bleu is so hard to shootReplyDelete

There should be a possibility.

Brilliant, and very atmospheric, well captured. That moment of sun-light fading, is also there in the momument...my memory says this is the Lanner memorial ( the waltz king before Strauss) is that right?ReplyDelete
this is the Franz Grillparzer memorial, at the end of the Rose Garden, looking from the Burgtheater side. I remember seeing a Lanner memorial, but where oh where??? ;-)
Herzliche Grüße aus Wien,
Love the top composition with the beautiful pink building in the background.ReplyDelete
Beautiful, my roses are still blooming continuously even late September.ReplyDelete
