Vienna with the Sony Xperia Z5

Had the pleasure of visiting Vienna last week on a university exchange. It is hard not to be struck by the grandeur of this European city. Below are a selection of photographs shot on the Sony Xperia Z5. It is a fine travel camera and I really enjoyed shooting with this while there.

Vienna has over 1.200 kilometres of bicycle paths. Being a bike lover, I really enjoyed this.

A visit to Vienna has to take in the wonderful architecture and vision of Friedensreich Hundertwasser.

Here is another of Friedensreich Hundertwasser's famous buildings. Wouldn't you love to live here?

There are many beautiful churches and cathedrals in the city. Saint Stephen's cathedral is right in the heart of the shopping centre of the city.

One of the things I loved about Vienna was the amount of street art. Vienna has a wonderful canal area where young people gather in the evening.

In the evening the banks of the canal are lined with young people having a few drinks with friends.
