I live in the North of Upper Austria - at approx. 780 m above sea level - on the edge of the rural town of Oberneukirchen. I have a reasonably dark sky for astrophotography but more and more homes have been built around where I live, so light pollution is starting to become a problem.

I love all aspects of nature and photography.
