I did not know Hallstatt. One day surfing the internet I saw a picture of this wonderful town of Austria, World Heritage, and said to myself: John, you have to go see it.
This spring I was lucky enough to go, and the expectations were more than fulfilled.
I have no hesitation in saying that Hallstatt is one of 10 most beautiful locations I've seen in my life, with the wonderful surroundings of the mountains and the lake and its beautiful buildings and picturesque place.
There is a rack railway that goes to the top of a nearby mountain where the views are even more incredible.
Hallstatt is a must-visit site!
No conocía Hallstatt. Un día navegando por internet vi una foto de esta maravillosa localidad de Austria Patrimonio de la Humanidad, y me dije: Juan tienes que ir a verlo.
Esta primavera tuve la suerte de poder ir, y las expectativas fueron mas que cumplidas.
No tengo duda en decir que Hallstatt es una de las 10 poblaciones más bonitas que he visto en mi vida, con el maravilloso entorno de las montañas y el lago, sus preciosos edificios y lo pintoresco del lugar.
Existe un tren cremallera que sube hasta la cima de una montaña cercana donde las vistas son todavía más increibles.
Hallstatt es un sitio que hay que visitar!!!

This is a wonderfully sharp photograph of Hallstatt, the reflections adding to the pleasure.
The valley is set nicely on the thirds line with that bank of clouds filling the gap like huge marshmallows.
My warm regards,

Sometimes pictures make a place look so impressive that one decides to visit the location. This picture is a good example of such a convincing image.
You've chosen an excellent point of view to show us how this small town is enclosed between the steep mountainside and the lake.
The houses along the waterfront look superb.
Impressive is that steep forested slope and I like the beautiful sky as a perfect background.
Best regards, Paul

Fine view of the lake side Halstatt with classical architecture clinging to the steep mountainside, and a bonus with the distant cloud grouping.

What a lovely hillside! The reflections on the lake are very pleasant, accentuating the pretty architecture. I am so glad you followed your instinct and even more so that you are sharing this photo with use.

No matter how many times I've seen this pictured, it's still eye-popping on each occasion...and when it's done as well as this, even better! A location that's held a long standing spot on my travel wish list.
No wonder it's so popular for visitors and photographers alike, the raw natural beauty must be astounding. Your picture encapsulates so much of its beauty with great clarity, color and detail. I just want to go and have a seat on those clouds and soak up the sun and take in the view. Beauty shot!
All the best,
