Fifteen minutes from work I am at a stagnant branch of river Danube. In summer this is a great place for swimming, in cold winters it is a skating paradise, and throughout the year there are some popular restaurants to enjoy.

The Song of the Day is “The Next Big River”, one more time by Harry Belafonte. Hear it on YouTube.

As promised here is one more image from the new skyline along old river Danube. Won’t look that impressive to most of you, but the tall building to the left is something like #8 in the list of the tallest buildings in Europe.

While I was there, a few minutes after I took this image, I saw two elderly gentlemen with heavy DSLRs on heavy tripods, L-brackets and spirit levels attached, and it really made me wonder 🙂

The Song of the Day is “That Western Skyline” from the Dawes album “North Hills”. Hear it on YouTube.

Vienna is a pretty nice city and where I live now, it is very near to the river. Even in winter it is possible to leave work and go down to the water for some last rays of sunlight. Naturally it is even better now. You’ll see one more image of the series tomorrow.

The Song of the Day is “Swan In The Water” from Justin Nozuka’s 2010 album “You I Wind Land and Sea”. Hear it on YouTube.
