Its 20Deg C here in NQ & quite windy, I have to go & put a jumper on to keep warm - yes I know I'm a sook!
Would have been a hell of a lot colder in those photos matey,
Beautiful photography Lancaster as always.
You have a great eye for different subjects, looks like 'global warming' has certainly affected your part of the world too!

believe it or not but weather turn around very quickly, coming back we had 34 degree celsius today. were the pics were made but on 1000 meter today 27 degree.
two weeks ago we had the last night frost here that destroy the cherries like an iron fist.

making good pics is very easy, what you see is only the most interesting of 650 I made in a week.

Kangaroos? Are they still hibernating?

Great pictures, Lancaster.
Summer comes late, that high up.

Ha ha, Austria, as in Österreich. No kangaroos there, except for those Lancaster hunts in Innsbruck Zoo.

I see that's a marmot. I thought the tail was horns! (edited)



What's the Tee like? Is it alcoholic? What is it made of?

I love Austria. Have only been there once, way back in about 1989. I would love to visit Austria again.

Thanks for posting the photos. Have only seen snow in Austria from the foot of mountains looking up, or on TV or photos.

Those look a lot more dangerous than our northern B.C. snowshoe hares.

So Rum and Spiced Tea?

Mmmmm, going to try some Indian Chai with Rum very soon.

Chai is often drunk with condensed milk and is very sweet. I can't drink it this way, but maybe black or with normal milk and rum.

Perhaps the start of "Nitro Express Tea". (if that is not stealing from the Austrian's culture )

Perhaps if one has enough of it, one might even see the normally invisible "tatzelwurms" lurking in ambush in the forests!
