Thursday, May 12, 2011 – The Melk Abby
We docked at Melk and boarded a motor coach to the Melk Abby.
Melk Abbey or Stift Melk is an Austrian Benedictine abbey, and one of the world’s most famous monastic sites. It is located above the town of Melk on a rocky outcrop overlooking the river Danube in Lower Austria, adjoining the Wachau valley.
I didn’t have the low light lens with me, so some of these shots are a bit grainy… I shot the inside in RAW and was able to recover some of the details. Not the best photographic images but… oh well.. these are vacation shots.. not a photo contest 🙂 Hope you enjoy them!
There are a couple of panoramics at the bottom of the gallery
