There are plenty more photos of winter frost to go around! Enjoy!
We’ve had some properly cold winter weather lately, which has given us some lovely frost; and that’s the theme for today’s images.
The theme is winter. Enjoy the photos and a Happy New Year to you!
This video describes and shows the work that we did in order to lay roof tiles and finish up some other work on a reconstructed wooden scaffold that will serve as the stairwell to the clock tower of the Saxon fortified church in the village of Magarei (Pelișor) in Southern Transilvania, Romania. This was the continuation of a woodworking project that took place this summer. That project/workshop was co-organized by Stiftung Kirchenburgen, the Saxon foundation with whom we’ve partnered for the conservation and restoration efforts there, and it was sponsored in part by the Prince of Wales Foundation and the Order of Romanian Architects.
This part of the work was done by ourselves, Asociatia P.A.T.R.U., our NGO that we set up for the specific purpose of conserving and restoring the parochial house and fortified church in that Saxon village. I invite you to visit our NGO’s website and find out more about the work we’re doing.
In September of 2008, we made a quick stop in the Altstadt (Old Town) in Salzburg, as we were traveling through Austria. It was raining and cold, and in spite of my camera not being waterproof to any degree, I insisted on taking some photos. I kept it under my raincoat and I’d take it out for a quick photo, then back inside it’d go. It still got wet, but thankfully, it did not break down. Enjoy the photos!
We were driving on the Felbertauern Strasse, a scenic alpine road in Austria known for its beautiful views and its tunnels, when the weather turned foggy and chilly. We stopped for a bit at a place called Rastplatz Elisabethsee to have a look around, and we were treated to these wonderful views of the mountains above, the Osttirol Alps, where a snowstorm had begun, even though it was still early autumn. The contrast between the greenery being covered by fresh snow and fog was so wonderful to see, and it was a reminder of how quickly the weather can turn at high altitudes. Enjoy the photographs!
