View from top of Taubenstein (1.693m) in the Bavarian Prealps. From left to right: Obere Maxlraineralm, mountain station of the Taubensteinbahn and the Taubensteinhaus. Click on the image for a larger view!
Taken with iPhone 8 Plus with panorama mode. Not so bad for a smartphone camera.
Another photo from Wallberg in Bavaria, Germany.
A little church located on the Wallberg (Tegernsee) in Bavaria. During summer they have outdoor divine services on Sunday as seen on the photo). Wow! But we didn’t visit the Wallberg for the service but for paragliding. 🙂

View over the Northern Black Forest from the Mummelsee (about 1.000m / 3.300ft.). Winter has arrived. Yay!
Just stumpled upon this nice photo (in my opinion) when cleaning the archive (=deleting photos). I took this back in January in Saas Fee, Switzerland. This is a part of the mountain named Allalinhorn (4.027 m / 13.212 ft).
About the photo: last week we spend some days in Switzerland and visited some really nice places. This photo was taken from the Furkapass (2.436 m / 7.992 ft.) looking westwards. The highest mountain in the center is the Finsteraarhorn (4.274 m / 14.022 ft.). The lake in the foreground is the Totensee (Death Lake) at the Grimselpass. Strange name for a lake!! As you can see it’s already winter in Switzerland. I loved it.
Some technical details: the image consists of 12 photos in portrait format taken in manual mode at f8 and 200mm with a Canon EF 70-200mm 2.8 L (and 5D of course). Stitched and processed in Photoshop. The final image has a size of 19.373 x 3.830 px. With a printing resolution of 300 dpi these are 164 x 32 cm or 65 x 13 inch. I’m going to print this one.

“Täschhorn” (4.490 m / 14.731 ft) and “Dom” (4.545m / 14.911 ft) in early morning sun. Saas Fee, Switzerland.
I took this on a photo-tour with u.linder
on the top of the Allalin (Saas Fee, Switzerland, 3.500m / 11.483ft). As we reached this rock the sun just disappeared behind the 4.027m high Allalinhorn behind us. This was the first and last picture I took with a little light left on the rock. We waited a while to see if the sun would wander around the Allalinhorn but it went down behind it. Bad luck! Anyhoo, I like the picture. It reminds me of that wonderful silence up there (except Uli’s cough. LOL).
Btw, behind the rock it goes down a few hundred meters. Must be thrilling to cut a nice “first track” into that hillside on a snowboard … (w/o triggering an avalanche, of course).
This is a part of the mountain Allalin (3.500 m / 11.483 ft), Switzerland. There’s a fixed rope route leading to a monument. Maybe we’ll climb to this peak next summer. Must be a fantastic view from there.
In the distance you can see the Stellihorn (left) and the Joderhorn (right).
Beside snowboarding I spent some time taking photos on the top of the mountain Allalin (3.500 m / 11.483 ft). To the right side the mountain arises to the Allalinhorn (4.027 m / 13.212 ft). I’ll upload a picture of the Allalinhorn later.
The air is pretty thin up there. Moving fast isn’t recommended. 🙂
