This year winter has decided to stay around a little longer. The cold (-10°C at noon) we experienced early March was unusual. The snow lasted longer than normal. This is NOT what a good morning is supposed to look like in March:
The weather conditions reminded me of the
|Mugler's "Angel", an icon from the 1990's|
Very much to my surprise Lainzer Tiergarten has already opened its gates. You know where to look for me on the weekends ...
|The "Wien Blick", this time with uncommon pastels.|
|A boar adapted to the cold.|
2 years ago I pictured this frozen lake at the Lainzer Tiergarten.
|A4 baryte print from the darkroom|
Well, I was wrong.
Imagine my surprise when held the print in my hands: those white irritations aka snowballs create highlights in the picture on a otherwise dull and dark surface - the ice.
|This photo is a mood board. This is how I experienced the conditions on an almost daily basis in February & early March: Unpleasant! Cold! Wet!|
|The nights were better. Calm. Dry.|
|Moonlight photography on a full moon night. (must have been the last full moon).|
|A few hours later: Dawn around 6am|
|This is 6.30am. In Vienna the majority of people does not get up before 6.45am|
Having experienced so many overcast days you can imagine my joy when dawn turned into this:
|Sunbeams, at last!|
I could sit and watch the light wandering over the table forever. So I did.
I can hear hear the birds singing with excitment.
Can you hear them, too?
