Overcast conditions are no hindrance to skiers and snowboarders, as they pour out of the Alpspitzbahn cable car mountain station (Bergstation) at elevation 2050 metres. The Alpspitzbahn cable car is part of the “Garmisch Classic” services including Kreuzeckbahn and Hochalmbahn. Visible from the AlpspiX platform are the towns of Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Grainau in the Loisach river valley below, Wank summit to the northeast, and the mighty Zugspitze to the southwest.
I made the image above on 26 Feb 2017 with a Canon EOS6D mark1 and these settings: 1/500-sec, f/16, ISO1000, and 35mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-o1C.
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.
