Best pictures from TravelWorldOnline 2 / 2015
Most beautiful summer photo
This photo was taken in the spa park of Baden near Vienna on a hot summer day in July. We were in July guest at the summer party in Baden, at "Bathing in white". Temperatures that day rose to 37 degrees Celsius, and we were looking for shade, cool ice, and refreshing water. The statue of the Undine stands above a fountain in the spa gardens of Baden, and I think the green surroundings, the fountain and the cool, white marble figure in the center bring back the heat of this summer day.
Most beautiful autumn picture
In the fall of this year we were at Wine festival in Volkach in francs, with which the grape harvest is opened. Then wine lovers gather on Volkacher Stadtplatz and try the first grape juice, which is pressed by the freshly harvested grapes of the year. The Volkach wine princesses and the wine queen serve them to their guests after the Volkach councilor has pressed them with the active support of the Volkacher landknecht. A great autumn experience that has provided us with many beautiful photos. However, we find this most beautiful because it best expresses the autumn mood.
Most beautiful home photo
As a great friend of Gothic architecture, I particularly like the photo of the interior of St. Martin's Church in Landshut. I know of no other Gothic church, in which the heavenly aspiring form of Gothic columns is expressed as impressively as in this church, which otherwise looks rather unadorned. The church offers more great art, but to see it you have to take a closer look. We've posted a blog post about it, including the Church and her artwork introduce.
Most beautiful landscape shot
Here I find the selection of the topic “Best Images” particularly easy. In late summer we were on one of the most spectacular panoramic roads in Austria, the Grossglockner High Alpine Roadwhich connects the Salzburg region with Carinthia. On the way, there are countless breathtaking views of the countryside, but the most beautiful is certainly the one on Fuscher Törl. From here you can see the Grossglockner for the first time in the distance.
Our absolute favorite photo
We also took this picture this year, but at the beginning of February when we were at the Winterlude Festival in Ottawa were. There, we watched the ice carvers from all over the world carve ice sculptures at temperatures of up to -33 ° C. One of them was this wonderful snowflake of ice, which symbolizes winter for me ever since. With the winter sky deep blue and the icy temperatures last winter, the conditions for the winter mood were optimal, and the sculptures were in perfect condition throughout the time we were there. That was one of the best winter experiences we've ever had.
