Fotoeins Friday: winter scenes, five (Karwendel)
Above Mittenwald and next to the mountain station of the Karwendelbahn cable car is a tunnel “underneath” the mountain to its “backside” whose alternate route is down into the Dammkar valley. Experienced and adventurous skiers make the short 400-metre trek through the tunnel to the Dammkar ski run (black diamond, off-piste). This is what it’s like to stare into the unknown maw of a deep mountain valley. When the snow’s gone in summer, the Dammkar is a mountain-hike down past a couple of alpine huts.
In southern Bavaria, Mittenwald is 23 km east from Garmisch-Partenkirchen; frequent trains between the two towns is only 20 minutes each way. Mittenwald is also served by trains north from Innsbruck.
I made the image on 27 Feb 2017 with a Canon EOS6D mark1 and these settings: 1/400-sec, f/22, ISO500, and 24mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotografie at fotoeins DOT com as https://wp.me/p1BIdT-o2H.
