Hintersee on Fire

A kind of special photo from my last autumn trip to Berchtesgaden in south Germany. It was taken in 2019 at the famous lake "Hintersee" near Berchtesgaden where I experienced and captured one of the most amazing sunsets I have ever witnessed.

 

The sky on that day was rather grey but looked pretty interesting with some Lenticularis clouds in the sky. I checked the weather models for the whole day because with no lower clouds but with a cover of mid and high clouds in the west, there was a high chance for a nice glowing sunset. So I went to the famous lake Hintersee, one of the most beautiful locations near Berchtesgaden. But I never expected to see such an absolutely phenomenal sunset there. Half of the sky was full of glowing Mammatus clouds that are rather untypical and for the autumn season.

 

The panorama was more like a spontaneous idea as I normally planned a single photo. I had no time to adjust my tripod as the sky was changing rapidly and I don't want to disturb another photographer there. So I took this photo out of my hand using vertical single exposures.
