Höllengebirge, Totes Gebirge
« on: August 27, 2007, 10:35:22 AM »
On my birthday and the following days I was collecting seeds in the Upper Austrian Alps and I have taken some photos. Is an interest in those photos, although autumn has started very early this year (some ordinary flowers)?

What a delightful way to spend your birthday, Hans! And there is nothing "ordinary" aboutthe flowers... they are all too lovely to be ordinary! Super photos too, the mountains look wonderful. Thank you!
