Mountains in Spring

On this warm spring day I went on the first hiking tour of the season.

The region we went to is of immense natural beauty with its deep blue lakes and  snow-capped mountains.

It also has a tradition of salt-mining from which it derived its name “Salzkammergut”.

Wild Beauty of Nature

While I was walking around my favourite lake “Eibensee” near my home town today I took some pictures of the blooming nature.

These flowers might not be as colourful and lush like  tulips or roses, but they have their own wild beauty.

If you wonder about the bottle cap, this seems to be a remnant of someone’s picnic at the lake including typical Austrian beer…:-)

 

Best Nature Shots

I selected some of my nature shots to apply some changes in photoshop here and there.
What I like is to play around with slight changes in colour, light or background.

I also like to combine two pictures which are somehow related, like the picture of the lake and the foliage.
