Dürnstein - Wachau, Austria

in #photography8 months ago

The last weekend has been a "long weekend" in Austria: August 15th is a public holiday, and when that day falls on a Thursday, most people will take Friday off.

Das letzte Wochenende ist in Österreich ein "langes Wochenende" gewesen: Der 15. August ist ein Feiertag, und wenn dieser Tag auf einen Donnerstag fällt, nehmen die meisten Leute am Freitag frei.

We did it that way and went to Lower Austria on Thursday to visit my niece.

My daughter was at the Frequency Festival in St. Pölten until Sunday and we only saw her two or three times. Her twin brother said, one night at the festival is enough, and spent the rest of the days with his lovely family 😉

The weather was reasonably warm during the day, but the nights were already fresh like in Autumn.

Wir haben es auch so gemacht und sind am Donnerstag zu meiner Nichte nach Niederösterreich gefahren.

Mein Töchterchen war dann bis zum Sonntag auf dem Frequency Festival in St. Pölten und wir haben sie nur zwei oder drei mal gesehen. Ihrem Zwillingsbruder hat eine Nacht auf dem Festival gereicht, und er hat die restlichen Tage mit seiner lieben Familie verbracht 😉

Das Wetter war einigermaßen warm am Tage, aber die Nächte waren bereits herbstlich frisch.

Friday morning I drove along the Danube in the hope of a sunrise, but the sky was gray in gray and it also rained in places slightly.

Upstream I noticed intense colors in the sky shortly before the village of Dürnstein and luckily found a parking space quite fast.

Unfortunately, while I mounted the camera on the tripod, the really very pink and orange colored clouds faded very quickly, and I was glad that I could at least take these pictures because after a few minutes the sky was gray again and it started to rain, as you might see on the photos.

Freitag in der Früh bin ich in der Hoffnung auf einen Sonnenaufgang entlang der Donau gefahren, aber der Himmel war grau in grau und es hat stellenweise auch leicht geregnet.

Flussaufwärts habe ich dann kurz vor der Ortschaft Dürnstein intensive Farben am Himmel bemerkt und glücklicherweise ziemlich schnell einen Parkplatz gefunden.

Während ich die Kamera auf das Stativ montiert habe, verblassten die wirklich sehr stark rosa und orange gefärbten Wolken aber leider sehr rasch, und ich war froh, dass ich zumindest diese Fotos machen konnte, weil schon nach ein paar Minuten der Himmel wieder grau war und es zu regnen begonnen hat, wie man auf den Fotos auch sehen dürfte.

On the photos you can see the river Danube with the village Dürnstein and the blue and white colored tower of the Abbey Church Dürnstein, which is considered the landmark of the Wachau.

The castle ruins Dürnstein on the wooded hill can be seen on the left above.

Auf den Fotos sieht man die Donau mit der Ortschaft Dürnstein und dem blau-weiß gefärbten Turm der Stiftskirche Dürnstein, der als das Wahrzeichen der Wachau gilt.

Links oberhalb ist die Burgruine Dürnstein auf dem bewaldeten Hügel erkennbar.

The sky looks very different but it looks great

Before I parked the car and got my camera out the colors were even more intense, but as said, only for a few minutes, and then came the gray rain clouds.

Thank you for your nice comment, @akhimoni 😄

Beautiful scenery at the river Danube! The colors of the sky and clouds are very amazing. Great capture!

I think, I can see the beauty of the church and the castle as seeing from the far distance and I can imagine the nice atmosphere over there on the mountains where the castle is situated.... Thanks so much for sharing. ;)

It's a pleasure to share my photos, @tangmo 😊

A few minutes before I took these pictures, the sky was even more intense. A lot of this color has gone by in the photos, but it's still a beautiful sight.

Unfortunately you can not see the village with the church and the castle ruin very well, because the distance was too big, and it was still a bit too dark. That's why I've included links to the websites for more information.

Ah! I wish to see those colors when the sky was intense...... In the meantime, even though a lot of this color has gone, I think, the color of the sky in the photos are very impressive. I love these!

Sorry that I overlooked the links you provided. After checking, I would like to confirm my previous words that the church and the castle are very beautiful..... ;)

Never mind, @tangmo, nobody sees these links ;)
Thank you again, that you like the photos :)

Howdy again sir johannpiber! Wonderful photos there, who took those? lol...just teasing. Hey, I did not know that your kids were twins! Are they very different or similar?

A few minutes earlier the colors in the sky were so much more intense, but thank you so much, that you like these photos anyway, @janton 😊

We have had so many comversations over the past months - maybe I have told you, but I cannot remember. Yes, they are twins and the biggest difference is, that they are boy and girl 😉 lol When they were younger they looked very much the same, but now you can only tell, that they are brother and sister.

Howdy again sir johannpiber! You may have already told me and I forgot. You wouldn't think that I would forget such a thing but it's possible because of the Steemit Fog that sets in sometimes!

Yes, the photo was great. Your second best is better than my first best!

We have been talking so much - I have even forgotten, what I have said, and it's not the Steemit fog's fault 😉

Thanks a lot again for the compliment 😃

that's okay sir johannpiber, that you have forgotten. I wonder what happens if steemit collapses? Ten years from now you will be remembered how? Probably as a great guy from Austria but I think we will also remember that you take great photos! lol.
I for one will remember that you ride a Harley!

Thank you @janton 😁
I will remember a nice Redneck who loves to mow the lawn and shoot the dang snakes, after he has looked in their eyes 👍

lol! that's right. But I don't think Steemit is going anywhere and even if it did you would be on another site that I would join just to give you a hard time!

That's so true - Steemit is not the only website - palnet.io, steempeak.com and not to forget the new photostreem.com are very interesting, as well as so many new websites, which have come with all these new tokens and coins :)

Thank you very much that you like my photos, @rosargelisperez 😀

Sounds like you had a god time away even if the weather wasn't always the best I love these shots your quick action stopping and getting setup got some shots before the colors faded away

Thank you so much 😊
Yes, it was a good time with my family and my niece's family, although I have not seen my daughter ;)
The sky was gray in gray, but then I have suddenly seen these colors in the sky above me (I drive a Peugeot 5008 with a glass roof ;). The photos show the rest of these colors - you should have seen the sky before I was ready to photograph it :)

You daughter was at a festival wasn’t she

I am sure the colors were amazing that you first saw were amazing

Yes, my daughter has been 4 days on this festival with loud music, alcohol, drugs and ... but I have asked her to tell me only the nice things ;)

Yes, the clouds right above my head were deep orange and pink, but this intense color was gone very fast ... and there were no weed smoking young people around at 6 o'clock in the morning ;) lol

Only natural you ask your daughter to only tell you the nice things LOL

What s up with the young people in your art of the world not smoking weed in the early morning LOL

She started telling, but I said "stop, are you ok and did you have fun?" She said "yes" and I said "ok, fine". My little girl has become 17 today, she is no child anymore 😭

My children don't smoke, but some of their friends do, and I don't know if my daughter smoked weed at that festival 😎

I think I would have done the same, where i live its not legal yet but most likely will be soon it may as well be I smell it so often when out and about, especially at festivals or near bars.
I am sure you have raised her to be sensible and thats the main thing

Yes, she likes to make party, but I know, she is a good and smart girl, and I do trust her, that she does not do stupid things :)

There has already been too much ENGAGE today.

To view or trade ENGAGE go to steem-engine.com.

Its really pretty scenery of Austria.

Yes, my friend, the Wachau in Lower Austria is a very beautiful area, especially where the river Danube flows.
Thank you so much for your nice comment on my photos, @kamrunnahar, have a great day 😊

Thank you anyway, @treeplanter, I appreciate your service 😊
