Lake in the Clouds

Posted by MadScientist (Düsseldorf, Germany) on 20 February 2008 in Landscape & Rural.

Now let's have a rest from heavenly choirs and angel's trumpets: we're still at planet Earth and it's also fine out of doors!
This is a shot from Tegernsee, Bavaria, only minutes away from the next rain shower. And due to my desire for drama this evening, this scenery had to look a little bit more awful than it really was, then :-)

Michael Skorulski from Cigel, Slovakia

A lovely landscape, MS. Nicely captured.

@Michael Skorulski: Thanks, Michael! This is a very beautiful lake with some pictorial villages around. I wouldn't spend my life there, but staying for a while is very refreshing :-)

Craiger from Vacaville, California, United States

Ominous clouds! Well done

@Craiger: Fortunately, the next day weather was fine again :-)

Laurent from Lyon, France

maybe you made it more awful than it really was, but I'm fond of the atmosphere. Superb!

@Laurent: Thanks a lot, Laurent! This is a photo shot at our first day there and after a horrible night it got much better! :)

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Quite the ominous look! The mountains, water and evergreens were well composed and captured.

@Steven: Storms in the mountains always have something dramatic. I'm fine with this as long as my feet keep dry and warm :-)

Ina from Krugersdorp, South Africa

Dramatic indeed! great shot, I like it!

@Ina: Thanks, Ina, much appreciated! I'm coming from flat country, so mountains to me always are very special :-)

Tracey from White Hall, United States

Wow! So dramatic and foreboding. Gives me the a good way.

@Tracey: This happened in August - I was expecting a hot summer day, but instead rain was pouring with rain. Fortunately it stopped right before the wedding we were attending the next day :)

Michael from Wuppertal, Germany

Grandios, diese Stimmung mag ich auch so sehr!

@Michael: Ich bin auch immer wieder baff, wie sehr das Wetter in den Bergen umschlagen kann - und wie schnell! Dieser Schauer hier wurde später richtig fies!

Porcsin from Debrecen, Hungary

It looks like a picture from my tail book! Very magnificent clouds!

@Porcsin: I did a little post-processing here with that software I'm currently evaluating. The original image appeared rather flat. However, I like the effect :-)

gandz from Kharkiv, Ukraine

@gandz: That was intended! :-)
