(8 March 2017.)
After spending most of the day at the nearby Fellhorn summit, I return to the alpine town of Oberstdorf in time before skies get dark quick. What’s appealing are the white-layered fields with a sprinkling of farms, huts, and houses. In the image above, the view above faces south across those very fields into the head of the Stillach river valley; a snow-covered ridge of mountains in the background is about 14 kilometres away along the Germany-Austria border.
I made the image on 8 Mar 2017 with a Canon EOS6D mark1 and these settings: 1/640-sec, f/22, ISO1000, and 80mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-ocR.
I’m standing on the Germany-Austria border after having hopped off the Fellhorn cable car at its mountain station (elevation 1967 metres / 6453 feet). The skies have cleared just enough for a commanding view of the surrounding Allgäu Alps and Austria’s Kleinwalsertal valley below. In this image facing southwest are Möserbahn Bergstation at centre-right and Kanzelwandbahn Bergstation at upper right, above which is the peak Grosse Widderstein. Clusters of alpine skiers are visible as groups and lines of black dots on white snow.

As part of the Nebelhorn cable car adjacent to the town of Oberstdorf, Höfatsblick station is one of two “mid-level” stations between base and mountain stations. But even at an elevation of 1932 metres (6339 feet), plenty of snow is found at Höfatsblick, and ski runs starting from higher up continue on down. With a lone skier in the lower-half of the image; this southwest view reaches out to mountains along the Austria-Germany border region (including Hohes Licht and Biberkopf) and beyond.
