The Zugspitze Mountains, Bavaria

Take the cog railway from Garmisch-Partenkirchen to Lake Eibsee then take the Seilbahn cable-car to the top of Germany’s highest peak, the 2962 metre high Zugspitze. From here, on a clear day, you can see 250km in all directions. This image was taken just below the summit as it had persistent cloud cover with only occasional breaks. Here you are well above the tree-line so there is no foliage but the rugged mountains provide a magnificent sight.
