The weather really picked up last week and we had some glorious days. Happily enough my office is very close to Schönbrunn and I can go out there for a nice long walk even on a busy day.
I took the camera one day. Schönbrunn is supposed to be the Austrian Versailles. It doesn’t quite manage that but with its Tiergarten (Zoo), (made famous in the English speaking world by John Irving’s Setting Free the Bears), it quite a park.
I often tell people that Vienna is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. I get some raised eyebrows. I don’t see why.
This is what I see.
This is also the second round of pictures processed since calibrating my monitors with basiCColor display. Nothing more tedious than a bunch of theory with no practical application. Certainly beats screenshots.
The first round is here.
