Fotoeins Friday: winter scenes, two (Zugspitze AT)
Thanks to the European Schengen agreement, visitors to the the Zugspitze summit can easily traverse between the German and Austrian sides without border checks. Last time, I provided the view from the German side. This time with this west-facing view from the Austrian side, visitors can hop on the Tiroler Zugspitzbahn cable car down into Tirol (pylon and cable car station at right). At the very left edge of the frame are radio antennae for Telekom Austria’s reserve relay station, behind which is the massive wedge of rock called the Zugspitzeck (Zugspitz corner) overlooking the towns of Ehrwald and Lermoos.
I made the image on 25 Feb 2017 with a Canon EOS6D mark1 and these settings: 1/800-sec, f/16, ISO500, and 24mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-o1q.

The panoramic view from the latter can be seen in the winter scene from two weeks ago. […]
