Writing with Light

Prague Bound

As I write this post I’m sitting on a train, traveling from Vienna to Prague, watching the Ausrian countryside whiz by my window. It’s not 7:30am yet and there’s a beautiful mist hovering just inches above the lush landscape and all I can think off is asking the engineer to please pull over so I can take a picture. Not gonna happen but we photographers can dream. 

I must say that train travel in Europe is a very civilized and comfortable way to travel. The airlines can learn a lesson. 

While I’ve been to Austria before this was my first time in Vienna and it truly is a beautiful city. I wish I’d had more time to explore but Vienna and Prague are a quick stop before we board a plane and fly to Tel Aviv.

I won’t be processing my images until I get home but I thought I’d share some iPhone images until then. I am posting regularly to  Facebook and Instagram so if you aren’t following me yet here’s your chance πŸ˜‰

    Oh, wonderful! I still recall an overnight train journey to Vienna from the west of Austria, and waking in the dawn light to see the scenery – no photographs, just memories from over 30 years ago

    • This has been an exceptional travel year for me, mainly cause my son is in Israel and we’ve been visiting him. I’d love to keep it up but I think 2017 I’ll be quieter.
