Here we are in Bavaria. Mid February I was in Allgäu with a few friends for our annual carnival escape. This time, we didn’t choose a warm region. Instead, our destination was the Allgäu, a region in the Bavarian Alps. I don’t want to tell much about that trip now. But, here I have one of the images taken there.
We’ve had surprisingly little snow. But, most of the time there were low standing, thick clouds.
This is my contribution to Monochrome Madness organized by Leanne Cole. Look at here site on Thursday (Australian time), to see many more monochrome images created by many other talented photographers from all over the world.
I’d also encourage you to participate. The conditions are published in each of her Monochrome Madness posts.
The Breitach is here a young, small river and a Klam is a narrow and deep valley, the river goes through, a flume. This flume is very deep and the water has formed the stone in an interesting and impressive way.
We visited the Breitach Klam during our trip to the Alpes. It lasts haf a day. Even it was a nice and sunny day, it was cold in the Klamm because of the moisture in the air and on all stones. Water falls from above the Klamm and the river goes very fast.
Don’t wonder about the fancy colors at the walls. All the colors are real. I guess they come from reflecting the sky.
During our trip to the Alpes we also had a little hike mountian up. Even it was a bit exhausting, because we’re not trained to do such hikes, it was nice to enjoy the beautiful landscape from there.
The snow, that did fall a few days earlier, made the landscape look even more beautiful.
4 days ago I went with my wife to Oberjoch in the Allgäu, a part of the Germany Alpes, to get my daughter back home. She was there for a 6 weeks cure at a special health resort because of her neurodermatitis. We drove about 660 km each direction to get her home.
I certainly took my camera with me. Here you can see a few picture. I took them when we arrieved. The sunset let the mountains glow.
During the next days I’ll publish some other photos I’ve taken at the trips in Allgäu. When finished with that, I’ll publish some further pictures from the Seychelles.
