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.

* 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).
