National Park Berchtesgaden, Upper Bavaria

This national park is often referred to “Little Yosemite” which I could testify myself during a few days while I´ve been there last week. I also had been to the  “big” brother,  Yosemite NP in California in December 1992. It still surprises me which beautiful places we got in this very populated middle-european country. The park borders to the east and the south to Austria and offers a lot of sights and things to do. There is still a lot of snow around altitudes higher than 900 mtr. above sea-level – great for photography. This is my first post with black & white images only – all done in Lightroom 3 with presets from Matt Koslowsky (http://lightroomkillertips.com/). Enjoy!

Still some snow around…

A solitary alpine hut…

View towards  “Mt. Schönfeldspitze” and ” Steinernes Meer”

Early morning sports…

Trees inhabiting a solitary rock which is left from a rock slide some 5000 years ago…

Snowboard tracks amidst the fir trees…

“Steinernes Meer”…

Skiing around “Mt. Jenner”…

Ski-hikers making their way up…

…until they reach the top…

Wooden shingle roof…

Reflections on “Hintersee”…

Misty waters…

White water abstract…

The first visible crescent Moon 27.5 hours after New Moon, 1.4 % illuminated, lying like a boat, which is a very rare sight in our northern latitudes! Even the earth shine (old moon) is visible…

“Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life – think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success.”

(Swami Vivekananda, Indian Clergyman, 1863-1902)
