Photographer's Note

Austria's Schloss Schonbrunn, located outside downtown Vienna, was the Austrian Versailles - the summer residence of Austria's royal family from the 16th to the 20 century. Surrounded by hills and beautiful gardens, it is among Austria's most popular tourist destinations.

We visited Schloss Schonbrunn on a mild February day; the grounds were reasonably clear of people and the palace tour was quick and informative. We then spent several hours touring the zoo and grounds, only tearing ourselves away around twilight. As we were leaving, I snapped this shot of the palace lit by floodlights against a darkening sky.
