Vienna is a beautiful city. When you spend time in the central districts or in the north of the city, you might think it is the greenest place on earth, hardly a city at all.
The city’s most prestigious districts are all to the north: Döbling, the 19th district.
But if you go south it’s another story. Here are some photographs from the south of Vienna. Wien Sud is all railway tracks, ports, canals and airports. Even electrical plants and oil tanks (no pictures of the oil tanks this time).
The two photos above are not strange crops but enormous panoramas. More info, including large files.
There is a sort of strange beauty in industrial landscape so this post should not be seen as a condemnation but an investigation into the Vienna’s industrial look.
Info on the panoramas:
Wien Energie is vertical, Wien Docks Crane is horizontal. Size of the originals: Wien Energie: 4089 x 6024. Wien Docks Crane: 17844 x 2655. Here are 2500 pixel versions for those who would like to get an idea of the detail: Wien Energie, Wien Docks Crane.
The panoramas and all of the photographs above were shot on a Canon 5D with a EF 50mm 1.4f lens.
