[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Seeing the German Alps for the first time is awe inspiring. These peaks are far steeper than ever imagined. This is just a few kilometres from the Neuschanstein Castle built in the mid 1800's. Nearby is the Zugspitze, Germany's highest mountain. That one can be reached by gondola or train from either the German or Austrian side, and there's an official border crossing station at the top.

Stunning indeed, Murray! the cloudcover shows the rough weather that one might experience as a climber here. Grand textures and super composition

nice composition but the image could benefit from increased contrast and a bit of lightening.

Is there still border's crossing point? They are all Shengen now, no need to bother about the borders... Great photo, and I suspect that in life view is simply breathtaking, mountains are such a challenge to shot properly.

Hello Murray,
Impressive mountains indeed!
Well framed to show the rugged summit, good lines in the composition...
The cloudy day leaves the colours a bit dull, but we cannot always have sunshine!
Pablo -

What a wonderful register.
Those clouds mean trouble.
Very well done.
Love the notes, though brief.
