Photos from Recent Bavarian Alps Trip

Hi all,

Just returned from ten days in southern Bavaria and thought I'd share a few of the ~900 frames I snapped.

Click on the images for higher res versions and see my 500px page for a few more shots.

Welcome any feedback!

Cheers,
Will

Beautiful image.

I personally get a little distracted by the pathway and people on the left side of your picture, although others might find them useful for scale. How would it looked if you cropped it on the left?

FWIW, here's a *very old* picture of the cliffs I took back before there was a path, fence, or any signposting - you could walk right out to the "short step" or the edge and watch the seagulls hovering below you.

No, the image was scanned from a 35mm slide; the grain was there all along. I did make the image monochrome because the original colors in the slide have faded. The picture was taken in 1974.

FWIW I'm having awful problems with my web host's servers so my images/links are in and out, so if you don't see anything wait a bit and try again.
