72 hours in Austria
As summer drew to a close, I enjoyed one final warm photo trip as myself and a buddy headed off on a 72 jaunt to Austria and Germany. I had a super tight itinerary to cover a fair amount of ground and shoot multiple locations - some of which had been on my bucket list a very, very long time.
I wanted to fly into Salzburg but the flights didn’t work out so I switched to Munich and drove a very under-powered hire car south into Austria, from the lowlands into the hills. First stop was the insanely beautiful Krimml waterfalls. I could have spent a whole week there shooting the crashing water dropping down the falls, but we had to move on. To keep things affordable, I took a tent, but the air mattress didn’t play ball and I pretty much slept on the hard floor - the things you suffer for photography eh!
Next up was the awesome Grossglockner pass - a high Alpine road that makes you want to stop every 30 seconds for photos. We finished the day taking a toboggan ride down the Alpine slopes.
Our last days saw us leave Salzburg and travel back into Germany to visit the Eagle’s Nest - a location I had wanted to visit since watching Band Of Brothers. The visibility was amazing, offering views way back into Austria. After a trip round Koenigsee, it was time to gun it back to the airport and to home. Almost 72 hours of photo madness, some amazing beer and not much sleep at all!
