I had a great walk with friends yesterday afternoon. We realized that until then none of us had been up to the hills surrounding Vienna during the winter — especially not when the landscape was covered in its fine, white blanket. It’s strikingly silent, breathtaking and pacifies a need for nature.

I wanted to capture the textures of the landscape in this series of photographs.

These photographs were all taken between Kahlenberg and Leopoldsberg, Vienna, Austria.
