Fotoeins Friday: winter play at Fellhorn (Bayern 100)
Upon arrival in town, the signs in and around Oberstdorf will tell you you’re in a special place regardless of the season. If it’s green in summer, there are countless hikes down in the valleys and up on the peaks. If it’s white in winter, skiiers and `boarders are everywhere with their fiberglass “sticks and boards”. Among the Allgäu Alps is Fellhorn which hugs the German-Austrian border at an elevation of 2038 metres (6686 feet). If you’re lucky to find yourself plowing or “flying” through fresh powder, remind yourself you’re playing oh so freely in between two independent nations.
RVA regional bus 9762 (or line 7) provides service between Oberstdorf and the Fellhorn cable car (Fellhornbahn) lower or valley station.
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: 1/1000-sec, f/22, ISO1000, and 58mm focal length.
