Fotoeins Friday: Skiing at Alpspitze (Bayern 100)

It’s full swing into (northern) autumn, which for many means that winter and winter sports aren’t far off! (Me, I’m still mourning over the loss of summer.)

From the valley station in Grainau in Upper Bavaria, the Alpspitzbahn cable-car takes visitors on a steep ascent past the rocky outcrop of the neighbouring Waxenstein peaks to the Bergstation (mountain station) on Osterfelderkopf at an elevation of 2050 metres (6726 feet). The Alpspitz-Gebiet (Alpspitz area) is dominated by the distinctive pyramidal-shaped Alpspitze summit (2628 metres, 8622 feet) which is visible upper-left. In winter, skiers and snowboarders come up to experience the powder conditions as part of the “Garmisch-Classic” skiing area; admission prices vary for non-skiers like me.

November 2018 is the 100th anniversary for the declaration of Bavaria as “free state” (Freistaat). I made the photo above on 26 February 2017 with the Canon 6D, 24-105 glass, and the following settings: 1/500-sec, f/16, ISO1000, and 24mm focal length.
