Saubersdorf and more - after the rain, 17.10.2012
Yesterday, it rained nearly all day, the night however was starry. Thus, I volunteered to get up early with the kids, so at 7:30 I already started with my mountain bike heading for the grassland and fields between Winzendorf, Saubersdorf and St. Egyden/Neusiedl.
The sun has just risen some minutes before. First, it is shining on Schneeberg ...
... and shortly thereafter down here.
In direction Saubersdorf I pass by a ...
... pumpkin field.
Next year´s seed has already germinated - the wet haulms are sparkling in the sun.
Flowering oilseed rape, seeded for green manure purposes.
Corn fields soon will be cropped.
A view in direction Winzendorf.
Schneeberg, with the village of Willendorf in front.
The shadows are still long ...

Near the trees there is a fishing pond.
This corn fields already is cropped.
The pond near the street in Neusiedl.
I am standing too close to get everthing into one picture. So, there is a panoramic picture, made from 8 pictures, double row. Click here or into the picture for a larger version.
Further on heading for Mollram, till the model aircraft - airport.
Hohe Wand ...
... and zooming in.
Sonnwendstein in the southern direction, with the transponder of the ORF.
A view over Mollram. I turn back here.
Back via Neusiedl and a short way along the Blätterstraße. Here, a late seed of Phacelia ...
... and rape.
Puddles from yesterday´s rain ...
... with Hohe Wand reflecting.
Maple trees are getting yellow.
I have a closer look to the pumpkin field ...
... They are marrows, not oil pumpkins.
