Fotoeins Friday: AlpspiX above, Loisach below (Bayern 100)
After the Alpspitzbahn gondola ride up top, there’s a curious X-shaped viewing platform that appears to hover over the rock face. Those who don’t like heights should be warned: you can see through the metal lattice of the viewing platform and down down down to the rocks below. But the view is in fact pretty good: visitor above is pointing northwest to the Loisach river valley with Grainau, Garmisch-Partenkirchen, and Wank at lower-left, centre-right, and upper-right, respectively.
November 2018 is the 100th anniversary for the declaration of Bavaria as “free state” (Freistaat). I made the picture above on 8 March 2017 with the Canon 6D, 24-105 glass, and the following settings: 1/640-sec, f/16, ISO1000, and 24mm focal length.
