Fotoeins Friday: Am Quicken im Schnee (Mittenwald)

The town of Klais has over one thousand years of history. That’s not obvious looking out from the train passing through between Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Mittenwald. But within easy reach on foot are the ruins of the Scharnitz monastery, the remnant of a Roman road, and open fields with views like the one above to Wettersteinspitzen.

(The approach on foot in winter is possible on groomed paths from Mittenwald or from Klais itself.)

I made the picture above on 1 March 2017 with the Canon 6D, 24-105 glass, and the following settings: 1/800-sec, f/20, ISO1000, 47mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-aMa.

Fotoeins Friday: Karwendel soars over Mittenwald

On the Bundesstrasse 2* in Upper Bavaria between Munich and Innsbruck is the German Alpine town of Mittenwald next to the Isar river. Towering above town to the east-southeast is the snow-covered wall that is the Karwendel mountain range. The Karwendelbahn gondola takes visitors, hikers and skiiers, and employees of Bergwelt Karwendel up to over 2240 metres (7350 feet) in elevation. The ridge line along the very top is the Germany-Austria border.

* The road signage at the intersection of Mühlenweg and Weidenweg points the way towards German highway Bundesstrasse B2. B2 also has the European (B-class) road label E533.


I made the picture above on 27 February 2017 with the Canon 6D, 24-105 lens, and the following settings: 1/640-sec, f/16, ISO1000, and 24-mm focal length. Die Fotoaufnahme ist mit Wasserzeichen versehen worden. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins.com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-aMd.
