Earlier this month I was invited to a good friend’s wedding in Austria. The week before the festivities, I took a short holiday in the Alps with a good friend. A strenuous walk to the top of the Schafberg, beautiful landscapes and good weather made it once again a wonderful experience. During the trip, we visited several mountain lakes, where I could not resist discovering the underwater world. The water was cold and clear, containing plenty of fish. Below a short impression, with pictures taken at the Wolfgangsee, Mönichsee, Grundlsee and Altaussee.
