- Best Season: Autumn
- Description: I came upon this alpine tarn during a trek in the Stubai Alps of Austria during the afternoon and saw the potential for a great evening shot if the lighting and weather held. From a compostional standpoint, the FG rocks, reflection, and surrounding peaks seemed to fall into place perfectly. I sat for almost 2 hours watching the lighting change and captured this moment shortly before sunset. I stitched 2 horizontal images vertically to take in the entire scene. A third images was taken to hold the brightest highlights in the sky.
- Gear: Canon 5D2, 24-105L, Gitzo tripod
