2907 - dripping soft

2907 - dripping soft

setup: sony nex 7 with sel 50 f1.8 | 50mm | f5.6 | ISO100 | 1/80 | lightroom 4.1

one of my favourite scenes (not only) in the mountains is the wood, especially if it is located at the slope. when we descended back to our car today at noontide heavy fog was gathering in the valley of galtuer.

a fresh coldness is noticeable when the fog blanket overruns you. the contrasts become soft, the air flavours of soil. i'm an absolute fan of sceneries like that. in these cases i think back to the times when nature wasn't disturbed by any handmade environmentally unfriendly points. everytime an original nature feeling expatiates, everything is dripping soft. love it!

getting up very early at weekends is really difficult, especially if you didn't go to bed before midnight. today in the morning the alarm was ringing at 5am. we still had to prepare the packed lunch and at 6am we would like to depart towards austria together with our friends martin and jule.

after a two hours drive we reached galtuer where we had breakfast picnic in the sun, before we began to ascend to the alpine hut friedrichshafener huette (2.138m), where we are going to spend the night. we were received very courteously, had a warm drink and a soup and waited there for the end of the rain, that had set in at 11am. ongoing our afternoon walk led us to the ridge schafsbicheljoch (2.636m) and the summit vertinespleiskopf (2.706m), from where we had a stunning view over the schottensee into the valley fasultal.

despite the bad forecasts from last week the weather gods were well tempered so that we had a really nice day, almost without wearing our rainjackets.



and the evening in the alpine hut will be even better.
