Vienna by Night

Last night I took advantage of a temporary break in the extreme cold weather we’re experiencing this month, and went for a walk along the Ringstrasse in Vienna to take some shots of the various beautiful buildings located along it. This was a bit of a spontaneous experiment, but I’m actually quite pleased with how some shots came out. So here’s a nice impression of Vienna by night. Click any pic for a full-size view.

I probably could have had even better results had I used a tripod (which I don’t have) and played around a bit more with the camera settings (which I’ll do next time). But given that this was a spontaneous (and somewhat whimsical) experiment, I’m already quite happy. And there are still plenty of other beautiful buildings in Vienna, so I’m sure there will be a part two at some point…
