November 2013 Theme Day: Heights

We have no high skyscrapers, no Tour Eiffel, no real Heights in South Tyrol,
except the mountains,
so I show you a few views from 3,212 meters...










Schnalstalergletscher / Val Senales Glacier

You win the prize. And nature has provided you the perfect way to get "high" without chemicals. Gorgeous stuff, Karl!

Nature's heights! Perfect choice!

That was an easy one for you, this is soooo beautiful!

Dina said...

It's a whole other world up there. It doesn't get much higher than that.

Arija said...

Am I assuming correctly that the glacier is receding?

Karl Demetz said...

Yes, Arija, you are absolutely right.

You have the best sweeping heights!
(btw, if you look closely in my post, you can see what we in Hamilton call 'The Mountain'!)

You must have climbed up that mountain to get your first photo. That hight makes my knees weak. Beautiful photos.

These beautiful mountains are a gift to the people of South Tyrol, and in turn from you to us, Karl. Thank you.
