Schoenbrunn Sights

Low sun in Schoenbrunn gardens, which are crisscrossed with pathways wide and narrow - lovely to spend a whole day in.

We saw Schoenbrunn and its gardens one on of those cold, bright winter days when most of the marble statues were wrapped in bisque-coloured tarps.

That is not always so bad – it gave us an appreciation of the precise geometry of the garden’s design. There is also something poetic in the bare brown tree branches against a blue sky. I’ll add more pictures as the week goes on.

Sun paints shadows across the gravelly grounds.
