Today is national holiday in Austria, so I do not have to get up and work. This day commemorates the day in 1955 when the Soviet Union, the USA, Great Britain and France ended their occupation, and a constitutional law of perpetual Austrian neutrality was inacted. And I hope it is also the date, where every involvement of Austria in wars ended for ever. (Shot in the mountains of Upper Austria)

Great photo and that's No Bull. Love the informative narrative. Too bad more countries don't follow your example. Are those ski slopes in the mountains? Love the way the cupelo is peeking over the hill to see what's going on. Very relaxing post for a very relaxing day for you. Enjoy.

AMEN! And what a beautiful country it is. No wonder so many fought over it. That cow looks rather dubious. The clarity of this shot is remarkable and that dome is beautiful. Great shot, Sabine with so much to appreciate in it.

You will be led to the knowledge of the internal things which are invisible to you, by the external things which you see before you. . . . Even so then, we can represent to ourselves in thought the Author of all that is, by contemplating and admiring the (visible) things which He has made, and ever brings into being. - Hermes
