Swiss Alps Winter V

Posted by
Stefan (Amlikon-Bissegg, Switzerland) on 28 February 2010 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

Early morning at 06:30 AM the sun came up behind the mountain and iluminated the area "Saemtisersee" near Appenzell. It was frozen cold at minus 18 degree Celcius and I was completely lonely at this time. I walked through the darkness for about one hour really deep up to this wonderfull place, where I'm alot during spring, summer and fall. But I never was at the winter time up to this place.

At the lake and to the opposite direction the lake was completely covered with Ice and snow. In this area, during the winter it is most of the time in winter deep under minus degree.

Thanks for taking the time to visit my photoblog and I love to read your comments.
