Fotoeins Friday: Skiing near Germany’s southernmost town

The Bavarian mountain and hiking town of Oberstdorf is the southernmost in Germany. After a short bus ride from the town centre, you reach the valley station for the Fellhorn cable car. Fellhorn mountain is located near the Austrian-German border where the German federal state of Bavaria bumps up against Austria and the federal state of Vorarlberg. After disembarking the cable car near the summit (at 1967 metres or 6453 feet above sea level), you can ski along the Austria-German frontier into Austria in winter, or walk the trails along the frontier ridge in summer. The picture above is the view facing east from the summit station of the cable car. Skiers and snowboarders find fresh powder everywhere on the slopes of Fellhorn, even in the area near the support pylons for the cable car.


I made the picture above on 8 March 2017 with the Canon 6D, 24-105 lens, and the following settings: 1/1000-sec, f/22, ISO1000, and 35mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-aMn.
