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.

HOLIDAY SEASON

I am happy to return quite soon again to the much cooler mountains and fresh heights of the Alps because this year was simply tropical hot and too dry till now. And summerfreshness in this regard means also a nice passion and annual recurring ritual while passing by old stony paths, gorges, meadows or mudslides and focussing the mountain’s top. When getting up late or in case it is simply really just too hot at all, a nearby chilly lake or coffee-shop may also be very stimulating targets.  So in the time being this blog will  relax a little bit in creative tranquility until beginning of September. Cheerio.

 

 

 

SUMMERFRESHNESS IN AUSTRIA BY BEATRICE

“Getting to the top is optional.
Getting down is mandatory.” (Ed Viesturs)


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.
