Austria



It was a glorious and extremely beautiful day when we went to Wien(Vienna), Austria. The blue sky with only few floating clouds made a marvelous backdrop to our photographs..




              There is so much to see in the magnificent city.. It has remarkable and very well restored historical monuments, buildings, statues... 
  



I love the beautiful sculptures adorned on the top or the dome of the stunning historical buildings ...The details, features and expressions of these around 200 year old statues always amaze me.. They have lived through so many years and seen worse during world wars and glorious days before and later the wars....

Have a happy weekend !!!!

Take a look at beautiful skies all around the world at Skywatch Friday..
