Great series Fred, 4 is also very nice in colour, 7 is weird (or "art" ) and 9 is majestic.

I only was in Lech once (1987), we wanted to start our backpacking tour along some mountain huts there by taking the cable car up and that way avoid a long climb. We got up and then there was so much snow there late June that all trails were still snowed under. So we went down and drove to the Karwendel, which is much lower with less snow and made a very nice week long hike there. All these images remind me of the mountain hikes we did in those years, I really need to look up the slides and scan them to bring back more memories.
Mind the bandwidth of others, don't link pictures larger then 1024 wide or 960 pix high, see here

Excellent series Fred. I love those mountain views!

Thanks Kelly! No trains for you in this series though. I can understand your appreciation for Südtirol as holiday destination, but can also really recommend Budapest!

Great series of photos Fred!

So many nice ones it is had to pick a favorite! I like L10 for the depth the plant in the foreground gives, but they are all super!
Makes me a little homesick. We won't be making our annual vacation in Südtirol this year! And Budapest is a city I hope to visit some day.

Kind regards,

Kelly

Well, you have a point here Ine! , prices are 'royal'!!

Since we were there, we decided we should have 'apfelstrudle'.
My daughter knew you could have that in Oberlech near the statue L14. (she worked as a fysio therapist in this region last winter).

Still it was a challenge to find, since many hotel/restaurants were closed in summer. We found one open, ordered and enjoyed two coffee, one tea and three apfelstrudle on a terrace. The bill was only 40 euro

The view was nice though...

Thanks Aavo! It was quite a challenge to get a nice picture without a too disturbing background and still show the 'floating' chest.

The pictures are very nice, it was a joy to look through.

Just do it Jet! Happy shooting

Thanks all for the kind comments!

@ angora: Indeed #4 in BW was nicer, but I felt the colour would suit in this set.

For ## 4-11 we went with the cable car to the top (> 2300m).
#14 was at the other side of the river where we drove up a bit.

@ waldo_posth: Didn't mean to start the climate debate here , but if things change, it is still a great place for hiking as well.

L11 is the best shot in this set. Great series.
