Wow, what a great sunset with vapor trails over Leopoldsberg and Kahlenberg. Golden hour. Once again. ;-) So it’s nothing really special about this sunset and the picture.


But what’s really special and interesting is the fact that one of my Flickr contacts (-Sunny-) took almost the same picture at almost the same point in time. Check out her picture of this sunset. :-)

I wonder how many people in Vienna took a picture of this same scene at the same moment. This would be interesting to know.

Amélie Poulain

This is similar to the thoughts of Amélie in the movie The Fabulous Life of Amélie Poulain. She sits on the stairs below Sacré-Cœur and wonders how many couples have a climax at this moment. But she knows the answer (15) unlike me. I do not know how many people took a picture of this scene. I just know two people who did but not how many others … Maybe I should ask Amélie she’d know the answer. :mrgreen:

A beautiful day with vapor trails all over the sky

It was a really nice and bright sunday, with blue sky, vapor trails and some white clouds.

The sky is the limit

Take a shower in the golden hour 

The evening light was even greater than day light. I took these shots at the SMZ Ost Donauspital, a hospital in the 22nd district of Vienna. This time of the day is not called golden hour for nothing. :-) But please don’t get confused and mistake “golden hour” for “golden shower“. Even though there are similarities in color. ;-)

If you have golden shower hour photos taken by yourself, please feel free to post them (or some links to them) in the comments.


We are looking south here where you can see the Schneeberg at the horizon, the hydroelectric power station Freudenau in the middle and the radio tower (150 meters) at the Arsenal in the 3rd district of Vienna (rightmost).
