Frühlingsfest 2010 – Ramsau am Dachstein, Austria

The annual spring show here in Ramsau am Dachstein better known as the Frühlingsfest has being running every year for the last 23 years. This year’s parade consisted of over 100 horses, brass bands, decorated floats in traditional fashion, buggies and traps all with it’s rustic charm. And of course plenty to eat and drink.

It’s always a great day out and wonderful opportunity to capture friendly local characters in photographs. Do hope you enjoyed the images, please leave a comment or two.

Don’t forget to come and see me, at the ‘Austrian Gorge’ Exhibition in Ramsau Ort, June 25th. Click for more information.

I thought I was in the wrong place at first.

These photographs do give a real sense of the occasion. It's like being there. Fantastic.

Hey thanks Roger, a bit of practice with a new lens 85L to break her in, so to speak. I have a wedding to photograph in early July in Upper Austria. They're a young couple in their early twenties so it should be interesting at least fun to make pictures – which is why we do it, I guess. 🙂
