In my lightboxes:
- Title: Blue Lagoon
- Country: Austria
- Nearest Area: Stubai Alps
- Nearest Town: Neustift
- Brief Directions: Fly into Innsbruck, drive about an hour to Neustift. Several trails and huts access this part of the Alps.
- Best Season: Summer
- Description: This brilliantly blue glacial lagoon appeared briefly during a trek through Austria's Stubai Alps. Hiking maps don't yet show the lake, as the melt of the Sulzenau Glacier has been so rapid. CLouds soon covered the lake, but I had time to make several images. For this shot I zoomed in and took 2 horizontal images and stitched them so as to iclude the bergs and the mountains beyond.
- Gear: Canon 5D2, 24-105L, polarizing filter, Gitzo tripod
