A cold and foggy night walking the streets of Hallstatt.
After spending the day in Kitzbuhl watching the downhill skiing championships I hopped in the car and drove out to Hallstatt. Two hours through snowy weather and fog I kept thinking, this isn’t the most ideal weather for Hallstatt, I should just turn around. But, as a Californian living abroad, kept telling myself how lucky I am to even have this opportunity. It really was an interesting drive in my small, two-wheel drive, euro-style hatchback.
I had a nice time capturing the city, but an even better time talking with a gentlemen from the area. He was the owner of two homes on the point where all people capture Hallstatt. We talked about the history of the city. Growing up there. The bus loads of tourists, and his 92 year old mother drinking schnapps in town. After these images I went down to the waters edge on his dock/boathouse to capture this image. Many of Hallstatt are from higher up, and I have those too, but I liked this lower perspective. Just wish it was a clear night to see the stars and peaks in the background.
