    Default Hotel Silver Swan, Austria - August 2016


    Situated half way up a mountain in a sleep little Austrian village, we arrived here after a rather long drive through the day. We planned to sleep inside for the night, but upon a quick scout round we couldn't find a way in. We mooched back to the car and got the tents, and found a flatish bit of grass to set up on. I was about to call it a night until i looked up - one of the most beautiful skies i'd ever seen. After a rather short debate we trooped back to the car to get the cameras - along with beers and snacks and set up for some shots. Unfortunately the cloud started to roll in, and we were greeted with a rather beautiful thunderstorm over the mountains in the distance. In hindsight, i'm glad we didn't get in at first, because it was a truly enjoyable night sitting around with a few beers, chatting and taking photos. This was taken from outside my tent - and what a beautiful view we woke up to the next morning.



    After a rather poor nights sleep - mostly down to the fact we were pitched on a hill and kept sliding down in our tent, we packed up and before we left had another look round. Thankfully we found an open window - one we'd missed in the dark, so retreating to the car once again to get our cameras before making our way inside. It seems the local vandals have hit this place too - with some awful graff in places but i avoided photographing these bits mostly. Overall it was a rather pleasant explore, with some beautiful views I won't be forgetting any time soon.

















    As always, thanks for looking!:D
