Default Reflections at Lake Fernstein

Hi guys,

bought me a Tamron 10-24 two weeks ago - yesterday I took a walk at the beautiful Lake Fernstein to shoot some nice landscapes. Here are the results:







Please check out a few more shots on my blog

These are very nice. I'd say these would look great on a living room wall.

Hi Markus!


Long time no see...?

First of all, congratulations on a super-wide. There is nothing like such a wide reach-lens. You will love this one!

Then, I was quite surprised to see almost NO SNOW!? The altitude of the Fersteinsee is quite high, higher than Imst and Arzl, and very little snow?

Then, I love all your shots of this lovely lake with some very familiar mountains in the background. Did you shoot with a polarizer as well, becaus in #3 you can almost see all of the lake's gravel on the bottom?

Good series, Markus - good luck with your 10-24!

Best regards,
Walter


P.S.: I look forward to another shot of lake Ferstein taken from above, when the lake gets its' famous caracteristic turquoise colored waters! In my younger days, I used to ride the postal-bus by there twize a week up to Fernpass and back, and always looked forward to this lovely green sight.

Hey Walter, been almost only on a nice german forums the last months - but now it was time to post some shots here at Steve's... and I knew that you would remember that lake

Do you remember my "Mountain-Panorama" from January 2010? There was no snow at all - and this winter it's the same... maybe one or two centimetres around christmas, and that's it. February was really warm (about 10 Celsius), on Saturday we sat outside with a T-Shirt on and on Sunday evening it started to snow - and it didn't stop until now

So right now we have about 10 centimetres of snow!

When it comes to technique: No, I didn't use any filter, because I don't own one of those nice Polarizers or ND-filters... but the Fernsteinsee is one of the "clearest" lakes in the Alps, so you can really see the ground like it's shown on the pictures!

There will be more pics of this great lake for sure - I'll be back when it's getting warmer and take a pic from above (standing on the bridge)

Markus,

Great landscape pictures. Agree with the others. I'm sure you have more from where these came

Thank you Torgny! Yeah, I'll shoot at this lake again when it's warmer and you can see the flowers... in spring
