  Monastery of Melk - by Jim Zuckerman  
 
One of the most beautiful monasteries I've seen is the one at Melk in Austria. It has a breathtaking cathedral within it - plus a magnificent library. It also has a classic three-story spiral staircase that makes a wonderful photo.

Directions Melk is about 45 miles west of Vienna on A1.
Season Any season
Time of day Any time
Recommended SubjectsThe cathedral, the library, the spiral staircase, as well as exterior shots from across the river so you can get a reflection.
GearYou will need a wide-angle lens for interior shots of the monastery. A telephoto can be used for details, but this is primarily a wide-angle shoot. Tripods are not allowed, so take the ball head off your tripod and use it by itself, resting it on the floor, on a bench, against a wall, or whatever is handy for a solid support.
Other Nearby ResourcesVienna is a fantastic city to include in this itinerary. Museums, the opera house, cathedrals (like St Stephens), shopping areas, and government buildings are all incredible, especially at twilight.
Camera StoreAny major photo store would be in Vienna.

Green Tip #103

Save The World?

People sometimes think of "saving the world" as a pipe-dream - an over-ambitious goal. At this time in our history, though, you can quite literally save the world. The scientific community agrees that global warming is a serious problem - one that threatens the existence of numerous species. This is an issue that demands action right now. There is hope, though. As long as many, many people change their ways, we can change the course of history. Driving in a way that produces less emissions, saving energy at home, planting trees, and supporting green companies, are just a few ways you can truly save the world.
