A paraglider over the lake Traunsee in the Alps/Austria in autumn 2005, Oct 15th.


Shot taken at the top of mount Traunstein (1500 m, direction south) in one of the most beautiful areas of Upper Austria, in the 'Salzkammergut' , which is in the northern area of the alps(see the map below).


We were about to start climbing downwards, when this paraglider started.

He enjoyed to fly over this fantastic landscape and the lake Traunsee. It started to

become a little bit foggy and I had the chance to take this shot.
