So where's the snow?

Muddling through life from Austria to Wales; God, life and a small black dog


Weekly Photo Challenge:Infinite


I love shots through arches and doors and windows, so here’s two.


I guess its a form of infinity, sorry if one is a repeat!

Unlucky Lessach???

I have earlier blogged about deathograms, or what is called Kleindenkmals in the Lungau.  This is where a tragedy has occurred and a small picture and a verse are mounted on a pole with places for flowers – well you’ll see.  The pictures I used were all on the roads in Lessach, one of the Lungau valleys.  We recently walked further along the same road and found even more, which makes a total of 9  in about 2km.  Is is that the place is  unlucky or just the Lessachers are more into this, maybe a resident artist? There is a large Chapel on the entrance to the valley asking in a typically Catholic fashion for St Christopher to allow a safe passage through the valley…………


This one is dated 1881, and the guy fell off the mountain, quite graphic details here!


This one is 1991, and a tractor fell on this man.


This one is 1856, quite typical, someone working alone in the forest and a tree falls on him.


This one is 1896, and a hunter was found dead, you can see the naughty gams (or chamois) that may have caused it lurking in the background.


This is 1985, a hunter tragically died. This is added to the other four in the post below!  Just what’s going on here????????????


Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting


Fleeting moments as a storm rushes through one summer evening. Fleeting maybe too much of a gentle word!


The destruction of the garden was heartbreaking but it eventually recovered.



Weekly Photo Challenge: A day in my life

One of my favourite ways to spend a day, having a ‘Stadt bummel’.  Dave and I took a day out just to wander around a new town, explore a bit of Austria. A real stress buster away from the grey and melting snow!


Weekly Photo Challenge; Beyond


Don’t you just want to follow the track into the beyond? One of my favourite places, Schoenfeld, just  over the border of the Lungau.


Travel Challenge; Near and Far

This made me think of the episode of Father Ted ( don’t know whether it made it to the USA)  where Dougal has to be told that the cow is small because it is far away…………so I’ve got a a horse shot!

Ok, I can’t resist it, these cows are large because they are ……………
