Midsummer winter .... by Hans Bax

…. It’s July (2004) …. That means Summer in the northern hemisphere!!!
We went with two of our sons to Austria. We made ​​a hike through the mountains, whereby we always spent the night in another cabin. The hike lasted eight days.
On the third day we took the cable car and chairlift to Kreuzjoch (2359 m). From there we walked further to our next shelter.
Midsummer, but there was a thick layer of snow when we arrived at the top …. Amazingly, but beautiful! Sadly it was a little bit foggy too.

In this picture one of the many ski lifts in this region, but in spite of the snow not in use … lol!

On the 8th day we went again – all the snow was gone!

Thank you for making the effort to take a look at my photos. Your visit is very much appreciated!
Photography is my passion since my youth and I never go out without my camera.
I found red-bubble in Spring 2009 and I’m glad I did. It’s a very inspiring and fascinating place to be, in more ways than one.
A heartfelt thanks to you all for the many kind words and wonderful compliments you gave me. I look forward viewing your world and sharing mine.
Have a wonderful day! Take care!
