Vienna photos: Prater

There was some mild snow yesterday, but it started snowing quite heavily around noon today and continued for a few hours. A mere week ago, we had warm weather... upto 16°C, then then last Sunday late afternoon while I was at Sharron's there was a hailstorm, and the next day the temperature dropped. The last couple of days have been really cold, and today has been particularly so. Temperatures are expected to drop slightly below 0°C over the next few days, but then again there is a forcast for warmer by rainy weather from the middle of next week.
Every year, I resolve to go out into the woods in October, and take photos of the autumnal leaves. And I never get around to doing it. I had been suggesting it to Fabien (he has a new Canon camera that he loves) too, to go together. He agreed in principle, but as usual, he never takes an initiative himself. Two weekends ago, I suggested we go on such a photo tour on the Sunday late afternoon. I wanted to do it during sunset, but that wasn't a good idea as the woods become too dark... Fabien had warned me.
So we decided to go to the amusement park in Prater instead. I guess I have missed the autumn leaves again...
Anyway, here are some of these photos:

I guess it is obvious that I like geometric forms...

Please do leave a comment if you like any of these photos.

Hi AS,
It's been a long time since I dropped in. Wishing you a Happy New Year.
You too haven't been active on the blog?

Well, we have talked about this, but since I'm replying to the other comment, I might as well "officially" respond to yours! Thanks for the compliments. And welcome to my blog... as I'd said, it would be easy to find it if you know me well enough to type in the right keywords!

@The Visitor
Thanks, and a Happy New Year to you too. Yeah, I have been rather slack at posting... not because there isn't much to post, but too much... and with other things keeping me busy, procrastination comes takes the front seat. But I hope this blog isn't dying too soon like my previous attempts.
