This is a big test and hopefully it works, I have been asked by fellow RCZ'ers who went on the Austria trip, if I can post some of my pics....
Videos I cannot do nor footage from my Drone.
I took 5 cameras and amassed over 230GB of data. This will probably bore the pants off many of you, if so don't look !!
Those of you whom are interested - enjoy.

If this works I will try to post in some sort of logical order, the first couple are tests...

This was the car after doing 1532kms - still shining
Image
With the Alps in the background
Image
The Castle - the Hotel Restaurant is just visible on the right
Image
I love my car...
Image
Sun just breaking through 8am
Image
Engine just ticking over
Image
Some shots you just cannot bore of
Image
The owner of the castle has been dead 200 years !
Image
Even managed to find a woodpecker
Image
Twinkle twinkle little star
Image
This was a vivid shot of the car
Image
A red kite if I am not mistaken
Image

I'll post some more tomorrow......
:lol: Laugh and the whole world laughs with you.... or is that at you? :eusa-think:

When I said this was a test, it was because these are in my flicker account and didn't know if I could link them or actually post them. Anyways RCZ'ers it seems you can post them just like PhotoBucket. So there is another way to show of your pics !
If anyone needs help with this, ask and I'll tell you how I did it.

Anyways, Thanks for the positive comments, away we go....

It was a fair drop from the castle edge
Image
to the valley below
Image
These were the rooms at the back of the hotel, complete with loungers, the wooded area had a hot tub - wee hey!!
Image
front of hotel, each block was a room, very nice and cosy warm rooms - well done Danny for choice
Image
pride and place - well I was there first !!
Image
the village had a small lake
Image
this guy was fishing
Image
but the fish were at my side !
Image
there was a harvest type festival going on
Image
the village was very pretty
Image
Image
and had it's own ski lift
Image

Well enough you say we've seen the village - wheres the cars !!!

Ok Ok....

So yes the trip, the drives, the views, the cars !!!

Here we go....

Our first drive out
Image
Image
the roads and scenery were amazing
Image
you looking at me !!!
Image
Image
nearly at the top, this was a hydro-electric dam
Image
Image
well i had to !
Image
at the top
Image
Image
Image
and at the back of the grid...
Image
guess what
Image
we drove up here and the views were amazing @ 2750m
Image
Image
cable-car lift for the skier's to 3108m
Image
if you thought this was quite close, see if you can pick out the digger
Image
Image
skiing anyone?
Image
about to set off back
Image
couldn't resist
Image
you meet the craziest people while you are away !
Image
all 12
Image
the red car was the crazy lady with teddy
Image
the roads and views - stunning
Image
Image
Image
as was this !! well someone has to big it up lol
Image
some guys from England were diving here - repairing the dam or similar
Image
looks small doesn't it, until you can see there is portacabins stacked on there !
Image
who's that girl?
Image
I'm not cutting the grass - no way o say
Image
well there's all sorts to see in this picture - including me !
Image
this was from a floating platform, my legs were like jelly !
Image
Image
guess what I'm in?.... give up?
Image

you all had enough yet?

well more !!

So the yellow lift was only to half way, you then had to get the red lift to the top !!!
Image
this was the top, very high, nice restaurant too
Image
Image
the village bottom left wasn't ours - this was the half way point !!
Image
dramatic shot !
Image
Image
some guys and gals were doing carvings, this was in stone - guess what it is yet?
Image
some of their work was for sale - like this Madonna
Image
Image
top of the world really
Image

This was on our way to Stelvio Pass, first time all lined up
Image

Apparently just after the war when Italy was run by Fascists, they decided to flood this valley and told the residents to leave. There was no compulsory purchase scheme them days, so most of the villagers left for America.
As a reminder they left one of the church steeples erect.. this is it
Image
Of course all this driving takes it's toll and when you've gotta go.....
Image
Now this area is a tourist "hot-spot"
Image
the not so Dirty Dozen !!
Image
this was the valley before flooded, you can see the spire in the village bottom right
Image
top of the Stelvio
Image
the dogs liked it too
Image
lots of people stick stickers to the sign at the top
Image
believe it or not but there are lots of little shops at the top
Image
and a pizza restaurant - they were very nice
Image
this was part of the road up, it has 47/48 bends each one numbered
Image
we were waiting for the lights to change green, this is one end of a tunnel with a single road, hence the traffic light system, of the top of my head the tunnel was 11km !
Image
View from behind us - I'm sure I've seen this on Top Gear !!
Image
from inside the tunnel, taken from a video clip off internal dashcam

Cheers Renegade79,

For as much as I love Ireland in it's entirety; the fishing, the people, the roads, the scenery - the Alps were something else !! the roads were a pleasure to drive along. I at first kept turning my dash cam off to save space, thinking I'll turn it back on when I see something really nice, truth of it is , it stayed on all the time , for every turn of every corner was another spectacular view, be it a drop or a snow capped mountain rising into the sky.

I have been driving in the Alps three times now, to really experience it you have to go, it is an amazing place !
