  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.

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 #101

Alternative Fuel Car

The best thing you can do, as soon as you can afford it, is replace your gas-guzzling car with an electric, hybrid, or alternative fuel car. If you're finances won't allow you to do this, there is still you can do to help. First, make sure your car has been recently tuned-up. Keep your tires properly inflated. Don't run your car when it isn't necessary. If your exhaust stinks to high heaven and knocks out the people following you, then it's time to get a tune-up or upgrade to a low-emissions vehicle. You can do a great deal for planet Earth by using your car intelligently.
