Folksgarten , also known as Hofburg-Palace-Garden.
This is the winter Palace in Vienna ( as Schonbrunn was the summer Palace). In the WS is the main entrance to the Palace.
Taken on a gray day with low illumination.

a beautiful spring view shot of the winter Palace,
maybe the summer Palace is so beautiful too,
(I went there 14 years ago...)
that dome and wall beyond flowers and leaves look graceful so much,
thank you for your wonderful shot,

Hello Ike, Beautiful and colorful park area. I have walked through here many times. I lived in Vienna all of 1946 and then again in 1948 and lastly 1952-1954. Too bad it was cloudy, but you did well with your picture. It may be a bit over saturated, but it shows the color. Have a great week. Regards, Roger

The richness of these manufacturers is impressive. Winter palace, summer palace, palace of autumn, spring. For the wife, for the concubines, etc..
Good times ...

viena is a so beautiful town, unfortunately I had few time there and a big accident when I broke my head there (4 stitches),
NICE VIEW OF THE GARDENS WITH THE PALACE AT DISTANCE.

A good look at these gardens Ike, always enjoyable to see green grass and flowers...can't help but bring a smile to anyone's face. :) I always associate a picture like this with either Spring or Summer, it's a great representation of the seasons and makes you want to be outside to take in all of the sights and sounds. I like how you've made the gardens the main point of focus, much deserving of the attention, but still placing the palace in the background as a point of interest. A nice range of green's within this shot, helping to give some good definition to each particular element...with just of hint of red mixed in for good measure and contrast. Thanks for sharing the open space and view of the grounds. Have a great day.
All the best,
