Spotlight: Biking Across Austria

Updated: Nov 23, 2019

This roll of film was one of many shot on a cross-country biking trip through Austria. Starting in Passau, on the border of Germany and Austria, my travel partner and I hugged the Danube as we traversed through small riverside Austrian towns, biking all the way to Vienna.

The image below was taken in Hallstatt, an increasingly popular tourist destination, from the opposite view of a popular photo spot.

Travel Photography is such a popular hobby that we can become overly saturated with images from photogenic places that seem to dominate our social media feeds, yet the above shot provides a counter-perspective to the usual imagery associated with the postcard scene. Biking and film photography actually go hand in hand – where the slow approach to your destination allows you to take in the scenes around you and capture what you want to look back on.
