Looking towards Jägarkarspitze, Innsbruck, Tirol, Austria

So focussed was I on making images of mountains that I often forgot the valley bottoms while out and about in Austria. Such is the case here that you reckon that the mountains of the Gleirsch-Halltal-Kette that dominate this photo only are a stone's throw away from the side of Hafelkarspitze, which was my vantage point. Below that snow-streaked stony grey world of limestone mountain sides was a much greener that also needs exploring. It just goes to show that there is much to savour even in a relatively compact area.
