The Gallery - Picture Postcard

Joining Sticky Fingers for The Gallery ... the theme this week is Picture Postcard. Congratulations Tara on 100 weeks of The Gallery - I am so happy to be a part of this photographic journey of memories!  

I like to take photos. I especially like to take digital photos because I can take 5 or 6 shots of the same thing and usually one will turn out OK. But it is still most unusual for me to take a photo that could be considered picture postcard perfect. Amazingly I have managed to fluke a few beauties in my travels and this is one of my favourites. 

This photo is taken overlooking St Gilgen at Lake Wolfgang (Wolfgangsee), a lake in the Salzkammergut area of Austria. We visited in 2005. Although the day wasn't sunny and warm, to me this picture captured the iciness of the perpetual snow on the peaks, and beautiful succulent greenness of the landscape.

  1. That's a really evocative picture - some of me wants James Bond to speed through middle of the lake on a speedboat!

  2. I could stick a stamp on this one. And send it to a relative who's been everywhere♫♪

  3. wow that almost doesn't look real it's so perfect. B

  4. Beautiful! And thank you for reminding me that (many moons ago)I actually visited the Salzkammergut. (One less lost memory...)
