As I’ve said a few times, Carinthia is famous for its wayside shrines. This is a pretty beautiful one that I discovered today.

Driving to the lake, this time coming not from Villach but from the other side, from Klagenfurt, Carinthia’s capital, I saw this oak tree by a side road, a few meters from the main road. It was not standing freely, but I figured it would probably look good from below. Guess it does. As I already was in that side road, I decided to follow it, and that’s how I finally discovered the shrine.

Btw, two days ago I listed my Olympus E-P2 with EVF and 17/2.8 at eBay. It took five minutes and then it was sold for the “Buy It Now” price of 400 €. I guess I should sell more of my old equipment 🙂

The Song of the Day is “Travelin’ Prayer” from Billy Joel’s 1973 album “Piano Man”. Hear it on YouTube.

  1. This is beautifully maintained, and it reminds me in a way, of shrines to gods in certain other countries, such as New Zealand’s Maori shrines, and the Hindu shrines of Bali.
