• Driving The Grossglockner High Alpine Road In Austria

    In my last trip to Europe I visited several big cities including Zurich, Vienna and Budapest, but sometimes driving from one city to the other was a long drive so I planned ahead to stay in Kaprun a small town located right in the Alps with the only purpose of driving the famous Grossglockner High Alpine Road across the Hohe Tauern National Park.

    Driving a car at 2,428 m (7,966 ft) of altitude was a unique experience, I'm not afraid of high altitude but I was aware of the serious risks of driving at such altitude with occasional light snowfall. Other than that, driving the Grossglockner High Alpine Road was something of a spectacle with its fantastic road surface, 36 hairpin bends and unique surroundings.

    By the way, the road only opens from May to November, I went late May and there was a lot of snow, so I guess late July you will enjoy the mountains with blossoming alpine meadows.

  • St Stephen’s Cathedral Ceiling Design

    After a long day walking the city of Vienna, we made a stop to visit one of the most important religious building, the St. Stephen's Cathedral, the mother church of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese, the place was really crowded however I was able to capture several interior photos. I wanted to use a tripod to perfectly frame the ceiling but it was impossible due to many people walking around so I took this shot hand-held.

  • The Green Lake

    Grüner See (Green Lake) is a lake in Austria, in a village named Tragöß. The name "Green Lake" originated because of its emerald-green water, the clean and clear water comes from the snow melt from the mountains.

    Before traveling to Austria I found photos of this lake online and I was a little skeptical about the color of the water so I decided to take a look by myself. I was staying in Vienna and I drove 2 hours to get this place and I was amazed by the color of the water.
