Fotoeins Friday in the Alps: Grainau

An infrequent but sure way to get me up, oot, and aboot in early-morning is if there is good light; if there’s the promise of something sparkly and shiny; and if there’s the promise of a subsequent shot. This image takes place in late-spring at 645am in Grainau, about 15 minutes west from the Bavarian town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen in southern Germany. The St. John the Baptist church and cemetery lie at the foot of the looming Wetterstein mountains. The country’s highest mountain, Zugspitze, pokes out from behind to the right of the church steeple.

I made the photo above on 28 May 2018 with a Fujifilm X70 fixed-lens prime and the following settings: 1/500-sec, f/10, ISO1000, and 18.5mm focal length (28mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as

      Hi, Cornelia. Ah, just north of the Wankbahn cable car valley station, I remember seeing Burgrain on the maps and on the bus route maps for Garmisch-Partenkrichen. Unfortunately, I’ve not taken Ortsbus route number 4 to Burgrain or the entire way north to Farchant. I’m glad that the featured spring morning image brought you good memories.

      Hi Henry, there is a lovely walk from Burgrain to Farchant, beautiful in winter or summer. And a great bakery und Gasthaus “Die alte Post in Farchant. That’s where we celebrated my aunts 100th birthday, imagine that. Have a great weekend.
