[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
At 2,606.9 metres (8,553 ft)[1], the Hochkalter in the Berchtesgaden Alps is the highest peak in the massif of the same name and therefore one of the highest mountains in Germany. The massif is also called the Hochkaltergebirge, Hochkalterstock or Hochkaltermassiv.

The Hochkalter massif lies west of the Watzmann massif and, like it, is located within the Berchtesgaden National Park. The Hochkalter mountains are divided into sub-groups known as the Hochkalter Group (Hochkalter-Gruppe), Hocheis Group (Hocheis-Gruppe) and Southern Wimbach Chain (Südliche Wimbachkette). The most important base for climbing this alpenstock is the German Alpine Club's Blaueis Hut (Blaueishütte, literally "Blue Ice Hut") which lies at a height of 1,653 metres (5,423 ft) in the Blaueis Combe (Blaueiskar) below the Blaueis, the most northern glacier in the Alps. Other mountain huts are the Bergheim Hirschbichl for the Hocheis Group, the Wimbachgrieshütte for climbs up the eastern flanks of the massif and the Ingolstädter Haus for the Southern Wimbach Chain.

Another impressive view and another beautiful photo with good composition, and wonderful lighting.

Hi Jurek,

The distance between the valley and the mountain is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the mountain. The morning light has a good effect on the colors. Have a nice day.
