By the end of the year 2016 I made a small hike to this wonderful place here. And there I was … standing in the icy cold on a small frozen lake in the mountains and waiting for sunrise. I love to stand up in the middle of the night to reach such places, because I think to experience the atmosphere before sunrise is always something very special. I could find this rock here coming out of the ice … and normally this rock would be below the water level. But due to the driest December month since the data recording in our country and the great tensions in the ice this formation could happen. And it was clear that I made a shot as you can see.
