Gesäuse National Park – Hartelsgrabenweg

A sudden day trip starting before dawn at the god forsaken hour of five. The coffee was pre-ground in foresight not to wake anyone, the kettle fill the night before. A cloth bag with a loaf of bread, block of cheese, some olives and watercress salad. Preparation is key for making a successful landscape trip as early as possible.

My destination would be the Gesäuse National Park in Steiermark about one and half hours by car. My first port of call was to be the Nothklamm. However I manage to find a new place along the way at the start of the Hartelsgrabenweg.

This place featured two giant boulders with water flowing through them. Quite an impressive powerful force surrounded with plenty of moss and slippy surfaces to contend with. Nonetheless I carefully clambered on some large rocks to capture the innards of this quiet and magical place.

Gesäuse National Park – Wasserlochklamm

I had found out later on the Nothklamm was closed due to damage. I went back to a previous haunt I had visit some time ago for Pinhole Photography – the Wasserlochklamm. The water hole gorge also features a giant natural arch which I have tried many times to photography but it alludes me because of its difficult location for a good composition.

Nonetheless I suffered on so to speak and captured leaves and water. Simple stuff!

Gesäuse National Park

No selection of images of the national park would be complete without the mountains in the morning of course.

I hope you enjoy these images. Please comment and there’s a video too about my journey.
