The Lens Artists Photo Challenge or LAPC is marking its one-year anniversary, and moderators and participants are going free with their own choices to highlight their respective images. I’m pleased to present here one of my favourite spots to visit in Germany: Garmisch-Partenkirchen (GAP)* is located in southern Bavaria near the international border with Austria.
10 spots in and around GAP
- Alpspitze (AlpspiX)
- Garmisch (Mohrenplatz)
- Hammersbacher Fussweg
- Partenkirchen (Ludwigstrasse at night)
* All automobile license plates in Germany begin with one to three letters denoting place of registration. In the Garmisch-Partenkirchen area, plates begin with three letters: “GAP“.
^ The German Wiki entry says that “Wank” is derived from an older German word “Hang” (slope), and that an earlier name for the mountain was “Eckenberg” (corner peak).
I made all pictures above in 2011, 2017, and 2018 with a Canon 450D (450D), a Canon 6D mark 1 (6D1), and a Fujifilm X70 (X70). Alle Fotoaufnahmen sind mit Wasserzeichen versehen worden.

For LAPC no.53 (6-12 Jul 2019), I acknowledge LAPC’s coordinating quartet of Amy, Ann-Christine, Patti, and Tina.
