Michael Breitung's picture


This photo shows a very popular view in the german Alps, lake Gerold with the Karwendel mountain rising behind it.

When I started photographing this scene more than eight years ago, it wasn't that well known yet, but now it might be one of the most photographed scenes in the area. And for good reason. The little huts on the alpine meadows with the Karwendel mountain in the distance are the perfect subject.

Since I took my first photographs there I came back every year and never got the conditions I wanted... until two weeks ago. Two hours I waited for the perfect combination of fog, low clouds and side light. A magical moment.
