My fathers job now means he is travelling for most of the time so we visited Vienna bank holiday weekend to move some stuff over from the UK


I am in the process of trying to split my work time between here and the UK meaning we can spend more time over here


We took the trip over to Melk - beautiful place


I will upload the rest of our trip over the next few days

Wonderful pix. Austria was the most beautiful place I've visited so far. I've been to Salzburg (I'm a big Mozart fan) and Vienna; would love to see the countryside some day, and maybe go snowboarding there.

The pink and orange marble of that area of Europe is beautiful; you have one set of a church all done in up in it. I bought an orange ball made of it as a souvenir. Your pix make me want to go back.

'know what the biggest surprise to me was about Europe? The churches. In pictures, they just tend to look ornate; kind of like a fancy dollhouse. But in person? 'Breathtaking' only just touches on how beautiful they are. They're beautiful in every way: decor, architecture, religious. I'm an atheist, but I happily spent 6 hours in St. Stephen's Cathedral in Vienna, for example. They literally bring a tear to my eye. The first time I visited Europe, it was Krakow, Poland. Saw at least 3 wonderful churches there. Then, Vienna and Salzburg, then Prague. All of them are beautiful, and churches like that are something that mankind just doesn't DO any more. It's unacceptable these days to build something that takes more than a few years, much less a few generations, like those churches did.

What camera/lenses did you use, by the way?

I took all kinds of cameras for my trips to Europe, but the most rewarding trips were ones where I didn't have a heavy camera bag, but a compact camera: Canon S90 with a tabletop tripod to brace against railings and columns was great. Set the ISO all the way down for best image quality and go unobtrusive.

thanks for the comments

I used my Nikon D7000 and switched between Sigma 17 - 70 and Tokina 12 24. Love the tokina is built like a tank and very sharp. Some pics are taken at slightly higher ISO due to lighting and lack of flash but the D7000 works well up to acceptable ISO values
