|In East Tyrol (which is not connected to Tyrol, but a remnant of the former South Tyrol (now Italian Territory) on the border of Carynthia, sits the highest mountain in Austria, and second highest of the Alps in Europe. A scenic winding road is a great challenge on the Austrian Cycling Tour. Seen in this shot is part of the Pasterze glacier.|
Picture taken with borrowed camera while on holidays.
Scanned from paper. Needed to do some color adjust and removed some imperfection from bottom right corner, no cropping.

good to see this historical photo document of the Pasterze glacier with the peak of Grossglockner on TN! A powerful scenery well captured and composed, and I like the brownish tint typical for those classical Kodacolor slides I used to take at that time.
Just returned from that place, have approached Grossglocker from the west via Kals this August again, not having visited that most beautiful area since 1980. Alpine glaciers have been constantly moving upwards during the last two decades. But I am glad there is still a lot of ice and snow left at this magnificent place.
Thank you! With best regards from Austria.
