Elena Davydova December 01, 2015

Thank you, Rudi! Was a bit lucky with the weather, considering that I only had one morning there. Other than that, you need to be there really early if you want to find not only a pleasant company, but also a spot for taking pictures :) #11406761

Beautiful, Elena! I was there a few years ago and it's such a splendid spot. Looks like you caught a bit of snow, too! That certainly adds to your really gorgeous shot! #11406954

Elena Davydova December 02, 2015

Thank you, Sandy! I was there for the first time in my life and I only had one chance to be there in the morning. It was not the most spectacular sunrise, but it was not bad as well, and I liked the snow also! Otherwise, I have met many nice people there, and that was also interesing! Well worth having to wake up in the middle of the night :-) Hope to come back one day, landscape there is certainly unique and amazing #11406961
