Uhhh … yes, this is alpine kitsch. I know – and I do not care.

Today, after the rain, I was out shooting in the afternoon, I made some decent shots of trees and meadows and rurals ways and …

… forget it. Let’s say I explored a new reservoir of images that I’ll be exploiting soon enough, and – being there – I found a flock of deer that nicely succumbed to the magic of my 70-300.

The Song of the Day, “Da Juchitzer” by Hubert von Goisern and Sabine “Zabine” Kapfinger is not particularly connected to this image, but it is one of the best and at the same time one of the most popular examples of a kind of music that transforms traditional, rural Austrian music into a piece art of our time.

I have it on the 1995 live album “Wia Die Zeit Vergeht”, a german phrase meaning “As Time Goes By”. See a live performance on YouTube. And while you are at it, why not see HvG singin along with Bobby McFerrin?

  1. A beautiful shot, Andreas! Straight out of a fairy tale.

  2. Brrrr, Hubert v. G. But sometimes I love “alpine kitsch”, and this one is great! Sunny greetings

  3. Nice one! Although the motive per se might have been capture before, I still very much enjoy the better deer photos. And yours is certainly one of them!

  4. Janine, you don’t like Hubert von Goisern? Well, I really do. In fact I like his later albums better. Have you ever heard his rendition of Janis Joplin’s “Mercedes Benz” on the album “fön”? That’s not bad. Not at all 🙂

  5. Nö, I don´t like him, but I´m adaptive. I love this Joplin Hit, maybe you could send me H´s version? 😉
