From today's walk from Neuwaldegg up to the Sophienalpe, after which I kind of lost direction and found myself in Klosterneuburg three hours later already in the pitch dark. Sunny and warm (probably too warm for the season, but still very pleasant), and really beautiful especially in the evening with the sun shining low through the trees, except that I kind of managed to forget that there's still snow outside Vienna at least up on the hills. Lots of graceless sliding and slipping and clinging to trees and falling on my ass, especially downhill. My jeans are dirty up to my knees & beyond, and my poor Doc Martens weren't really up to all the wet snow, mud and water and will probably need days to dry.

The camera is lucky to have survived intact and clean. Snow & mud & not looking where you're going because you're looking at what to take a picture of is not the best combination...

Hahahah ! D'you know the way you tell your wanderings is quite visual ? I love it, it's like I'd been there watching. : )

You'd *so* have laughed at me.

I didn't even dare sit down on the train home, I was so dirty.

Probably, but only when you wasn't looking at me :P

Glad you like them! :)

The third one from the top... it doesn't really come across in the picture, but that was a truly magical moment. The sun was already rather low and flooded the wood with a warm golden light; standing in the middle of it all the play between light and shadow was unbelievable.
