Photographer's Note

St Stephen's Cathedral in Vienna has a beautiful and colorful roof. This roof consists of 230,000 glazed tiles. The Cathedral was seriously damaged during the second world war but was thereafter scruplously restored. Here you see the double-headed eagle that is a for the Habsburg dynasty. When I took this photo it was not the very best light (strong midday sunshine) and I have understood that you may take a very good shot of the roof from "Alter Steffl", the south tower, but I did not have enough time to find out if this was possible. In an attempt to make my photo diffent from others I took it from behind a lamp in the street.
