The valley of the Pesenbach in Upper Austria’s region Mühlviertel is a nature preserve and recreational area close to the the third largest Austrian city Linz. This image is actually a vertical “panorama” composed of two photos. (The only lens I carried along on this hike was the Nikon 28-300 mm zoom.)
