Vienna View

Filed under: Astrid — Astrid @ 09:40

A yesterday’s walk through the Wienerwald (Perchtoldsdorfer Heide) – the view goes over southern Vienna.




  1. I wrote a comment yesterday but it has vanished!!

    The position of the photographer serves to underline the way the couple on the bench are isolated from the city by their vantage point. The colour of the grass serves to highlight the season (even if our grass remained green all summer!). The positioning of the tree on the lefthand side acts like a parabolic reflector and concentrates the viewer’s gaze out to the right over the city. It’s a pity that the authorities supplied a rubbish bin at the base of the tree – from a visual perspective!

  2. It’s a sign of our time: if there is no rubbish bin near the resting place people will throw their rubbish into the grass … :( – and it is, of course, a bin of “Magistrat von Perchtoldsdorf”! ;)
    We have several places around Vienna with a view over part of the city, and this is one of the nicest. Unfortunately, a photo can hardly show this well.

  3. considerin gthe slant of the table how do drinks not spill over and sausages not roll off plates?

    Enough wispy white stuff to keep the skies alive. Left tree keeps my view going over the skyline, I do enjoy the banding of the hill with shadow/grass and then city.

  4. As Robert said, the banding of shadow, dry grass and city is pleasing. Unlike Robert, I’m not sure there is enough wispy white stuff to keep that large expanse of sky alive for me. The little white dog in the shadows is an interesting plus. It seems to be enjoying the moment as much as anyone.
