Velvet moments: travel photo of the week – Zugspitze sunrise


One of the highlights of my recent trip to Innsbruck was watching the sunrise from the peak of the Zugspitze, at 2,952m, Germany’s highest peak. There were various wooden statues being exhibited on the observation deck but this statue of a naked man formed the perfect subject, with the colours of the sky at sunrise as a brilliant backdrop.

    Thanks Laurel! It sure made up for having to get up at the wee hours of the morning to watch the sunrise! 🙂
