Header Challenge 26-10-11 = Autumn (Fall) Colours - by Tom.

This weeks Header is Full of Colour - as the theme by Tom is-
(((Autumn(Fall) Colours)))

Please listen to my music as you look thru my Autumn Colours
Andre Rieu - Playing Autumn Landscapes.

In 2007 we took a coach holiday to Austria in October - when the Autumn colours were a "WOW" factor.
My Header shows the mountain side - full of colour.

This is the Coach Company we went with A&P Travel - a father and son company.
If ever you get the chance to travel with A&P - you will be in good hands, good company and assured of a good time.
We stayed in the village of Waidring  at a family ran hotel  called  Tiroler-Adler.                   

Heres the cable car taking us up to the mountain top with the village right down below..

Here's another shot of the Autumn Coloured Mountain with a band of mist swirling around.

Just on the outskirts of our village - you can see the mountains.

Still on the edge of the village  - you can see some of the lovely buildings that are in Waidring.

 We took a short coach ride to a lake very near Waudring called Lake Pillersee
 Just take a look at these fantastic colours of the trees - the Lake.
Never have I ever seen colour like Ive see here.
I could sit here forever - just trying to take in all this Colour - Reflections.
Its so so peaceful, relaxing - if you have never been to Austria before - I can surly recommend it. To Right.

Please visit the other Headbangers and see what  their Autumn (Fall) Colours.
You will find these true friends on my side bar - near my shield.

Good Luck folks - and thanks for all your visits and comments.

Fantastic scenery, great shots and that must have been an amazing tour. In my early 20's I went to Austria on a couple of skiing holidays with a group of friends. Great memories!

Craver Vii said...

Glorious music! That blends nicely with these superb views of Austria.

These are fantastic pictures of autumn color. I would certainly enjoy visiting that area of Austria in autumn.

It's a while since I've been to Austria and then I was only there in the summer months so never got to see such wonderful hillsides of colour.

I have never been to Austria. I love all of your pictures. They are beautiful. And Austria is beautiful there where you are at.

When I published magazines and one had a story in it by a man who lived in Austria. He was a scribe and calligrapher.

During WWII he was summoned by the local Nazi party to letter all of the names on certificates they issued for various things. He also did a book for Adolph Hitler.

He sent me a photograph of that book and its cover. He was older than me so I assume he is now dead. And that is about all I know about Austria.

Absolutely stunning landscapes of a place I've always dreamed of visiting.
I would love to sit at that Lake and just soak in the scenery.

oh my goodness! It is like eye candy, I think my mouth would be in a locked position and drool would be falling from the corners and I would be in a blank stare, and my husband would have to actually push my mouth closed and push my eyelids down occasionally. I wouldn't want to miss a second of that beauty! You are so blessed! If ever I go on a European vacation I am going to ask you to write my itinerary! :)

Beautiful scenery and great photos! Love the mountains and lake. I have been to Salzburg in February and the colors were gray and white.

Leaves me breathless, Stewart ! I think I'd want to be there and take it all in. Stunning colours, incredible views, crystal clear reflections - a photographer's paradise !

Beautiful captures, my friend (and enhanced by listening to your audio selection !).

[so nice to be where the internet connection works as intended !]
