Karlingerhaus Valley

 

 

This is the valley where Karlingerhaus lies. The third day of hiking we had an splendid weather, and after crossing through the mountain and a hard ascension, we found the house in this idilic valley, looking as if it had been taken right out of a fairy tale!

From a technical point of view, this was a plain old landscape picture. Clouds were moving really fast, casting different shadows in the mountains in the background, so I took almost the same picture half a dozen times at ten minutes interval (while cooking and dining) to be sure I would get the best looking one. I might have been a bit too hard on the post-processing for this one, but this particular landscape, as I rememeber it, really had mind-blowing saturated colors.

Hope you like it!

Stony lake

 

Going on with the Alpine series, today’s pic is of a little high altitude lake, trapped between two big mountains. I kind of like the hdr enhancing of textures for this kind of pictures. In this one I might have gone a bit overtly dramatic with the effect, but I think it represents very accurately the mood around this place, everything so big and quiet and oppressive, the think grey clouds so close that one could almost breathe them…

Hope you like it!
