Ho ho ho!!! Christmas is almost here and it finally snowed in Vienna! ❄️ After the Bella photos i had planned to post some autumn photos but i actually found a job and since the 1. December I’ve been working full-time as a graphic designer and photographer, so no time again. But i’ll keep my promise and post often, even if the seasons doesn’t match! 😛 For now enjoy some snowed up Vienna photos! Cheers!
Winter is coming and going, after many sunny days they say it will snow again next week! 😀 Guess who is looking forward to that?! Snow or no snow, i’m slowly getting back on track with my WordPress Blog and the lovely community here! I might not be able to be online everyday but i will do my best to check out your posts and update my blog more regularly! Time to get this party started! 😉
2016, started with snow in Vienna.❄ It started to snow exactly when the year changed but didn’t last long. Then on the 4th it snowed again and this time transformed the city in a white wonder. Viennese people seem to always complain when it snows cause it gets all yucky and brown very quickly, especially on all the main streets and parks. That’s why, one must either wake up early and go out before all the other people ruin the peaceful scenery, or just go to places where not much people go anyway.
I thought i would revisit the Palmenhaus in Schönbrunn (click here and here to see it in its summer glory). I hoped the snow would still be fresh there, since you are not allowed to step on the grass and i was right 😀 Of course many people were there, visiting the Palmenhaus but i found my angle and a garden with no footsteps and voila 😉
When it’s so cold, where do you find comfort? What do you like to do? Obviously, i go out and take photos as i silently scream when i’m not able to bend my fingers under the gloves anymore and successfully press the shutter-release button but still smile cause my warmth and comfort comes from knowing i’m going home to a warm cup of tea and that i also created some nice photos i can share with the world.
Snow fascinates me! Maybe it’s because where i grew up in Greece it rarely snows and when it does it’s very little. Or maybe it’s because snow makes everything look so much different and all becomes so quiet… 😍
The beautiful Hundertwasser Haus surrounded by snow! 😀 I finally had the rare opportunity to take a photo of it without people walking all around but unfortunately the cars parked next to it, seem to always be there! It has become one of my goals to take a photo of this building without any cars and people around! One day…
Nope, it’s not snowing again. After the “snowstorm”, we had so many amazing and sunny days, with clear blue skies and i must admit i spent most of my time taking really long walks, 15km every day at least and kinda lacked any motivation to sit down and edit grey and snowy photos. Today it’s been raining so i thought it was about time, old snowy photos are coming up!!! ❄❄❄
Yesterday we had a little snowstorm in Vienna! 😀 I might have been the only person who was really excited and was running outside with a huge smile, ignoring the strong wind and the dense snowfall! What a day it was! 😀 Today it is all gone but since yours truly spend more than 3 hours taking photos yesterday, there are many shots to be posted in the following days! 😉
P.s. The Rainsleeve thingy i bought from eBay to protect my camera from rain/snow, worked quite well. I had to tape the lens opening side on the lens hood itself cause the drawstring didn’t secure tightly enough and would move exposing the lens when i focused…but for 7$ / 2 pieces, you can’t complain 🙂
Good morning my friends!!! 😀 It’s snowing again in Vienna and it’s a beautiful morning indeed! I cannot wait to go out and shoot some snowy photos! For now, here’s a photo of the Florido Tower in an icy surrounding. ❄ The waterpark in Floridsdorf is really a great place for photos and if you have a telephoto lens i would recommend to do some birdwatching, you’d be surprised by the variety of birds that inhabit this area!!! 🐦
