ALPINE JOINT PASSIONS

When winter is approaching always good to possibly escape in a cosy, stable and warm home, while sometimes even in summer snow may pass our ways not really far away.

In fact, the first snow I have seen this year was in late August when bad weather resulted in quite unusual and exceptional snow falls one day till 1,450 m altitude in the Austrian Alps.

Fortunately this strange weather in summer was a just a very short intermezzo of autumn which quickly disappeared again on the beautiful wide alpine pastures.

STREET-ART IN EASTERN-TYROLE, AUSTRIA

On our last day of vacation in the Alps I was lucky to discover today even here a little bit of street-art at a quite remote place in the city of Lienz being situated in Eastern-Tyrole, a more rural area with a lot of nature and mountains – so rather untypical mosaic stones of this very nice Austrian region.

How good to have been in the mountains of the Austrian Alps again for enjoying the fresh air, a tremendous nature and much cooler temperatures in the amazing and varied heights of Eastern-Tyrole. So here you will find some photographic impressions as a result of our excursions in order to escape the very pressing  summer’s heat of 2013.
