Oops! I just wanted to start the 2018 photo series when recognizing, there is still a draft from summer 2017. Lets see it as a belated closing scene of 2017. Another great year with a great summer experience. Lay back, take a breath and relax.
2018 is in planning. Some things are fixed. Others are in the making. Looking forward to another great time.
The view from Monte Titano down to the Adriatic coast line and Rimini. The Photo does not even give an idea about how breathtaking the view from that point is. The distance to the coast is 17km and the photo was taken from almost 700 meters height. The houses in the lower left corner (Borgo Maggiore) are around 500m above sea level and the terrain rapidly drops below 100m asl within 7km from where the photo was taken.
In reality, you feel like standing above the entire landscape and watching down to the sea. It truly is magnificient.
Another major touristic landmark on our list was San Marino. Strolling through the narrow alleys, enjoying delicious food, benefiting from taxless shopping and getting a glimpse of history about over 1700 years of independence. An interesting and relaxing day at Monte Titano.
Is there anything more beautiful and meditative than sitting on a landing stage, watching the sunset and the calm lake looks like a giant mirror. The beginning of a tropical night. I wanted that so much. And I already miss it.
A perfect summer day ends. I am obsessed by those “sunset in car mirror” shots. Together with the perfect song, this creates the atmosphere of road trips.
Snowmelt of freshly fallen snow making its way down the slope. Photo was taken in the Stubach Valley.
Been there for the 4th time in my life and it is still breathtaking. Picture shows the lower fall of the water cascade of Krimml. Big advantage of the weather was, the spraying water coult not do any harm to us. We were already soaked through caused by the weather.
Also taken in the Stubach Valley. So calm, so gorgeous. Imagine this scene on a blue sky summer day. Must be awesome.
Another lake picture. Did not know I have been to a lake area instead of the Alps. The Grünsee is part of the Weißsee Gletscherwelt at the end of the gorgeous Stubach valley, located in the High Tauern National Park.
Many hiking trails of different length, all are embedded in a breathtaking landscape and peaceful nature are inviting for a trip of your choice. If your trip ends in the Stubachtal again, make sure to stop by the “Alpengasthof Paletti” and try their Kaiserschmarrn. You won’t regret.
Another one taken on the trip to Austria. Usually the Glockner Group would have been visible at the end of the valley. Due to the weather it was not. Not really surprising. The photo did not turn out that bad anyway. I like the trees and their reflection on the right hand side.
