There will be few more beautiful green landscapes now, as that’s what I took most photos in Austria. This is a view from another castle ruin (I visited three in those two days there), this one being the the Durnstein Castle. It gives you a very nice exercise to get up to it, but the view is worth it.

This is a manual blend from 8 shots. I actually took 12 here, two series of 6. One time for the scenery, and the second series with my hand in front of the sun, so I can remove all the lens flares the sun created. This photo was really not easy to edit :)
