beautiful view on the lake and the church.
have you been at the famous "Weises Rössl" too?

@Roman: Thanks Roman, No, I didn't...in fact, I didn't even know about it, right now I just looked it up on the internet, since you mentioned, and I saw that it's a famous hotel.

That little person waterskiing certainly gives a sense of scale to the surroundings! The church must be huge! A beautiful place, a beautiful scene! :O)

Eric Cousineau from Sherwood Park, Canada

The dark forbidding skies are somewhat incongruous with the water skier! Beautiful light to create a wonderful mood! Well done Maria! ;-)

Stephen from Canberra, Australia

Breath taking scene - the tiny boat and skier give a lovely sense of scale.

Yair Karelic from Ramat Gan, Israel

Lovely morning! I'm sure the weather was nice, otherwise that waterskier would prefer to stay in bed...
You are so lucky to visit such beautiful places and have such a good weather to get great pictures. But maybe it's not a matter of luck but of being a Pro who knows where and when to go places?

Maria, I just love the misty light here with the tower especially! How I would love to visit these places...thank you so much for "taking" us there ;-) I also love your framing that you use..I guess I need to look for something like this - not to be a copy cat...Wishing you all the best, Maria...

A perfect moment when everything is just right...the clouds, the light in the sky, the skier. The red buoy. It's just a superb moment.

franz from Baden, Austria

tranquility and action well blended! i hope you had lunch at the "weißes rössel" ...

7 Nov 2011 10:01pm

@franz: Oh, I see why the mistake... After you left this comment, I researched to see why you would ask me that, and found this info, about their Romantic Restaurant, and I assumed it was the reason why you asked if I had lunch there. Sorry, my mistake :(

Julie L. Brown from Indianapolis, Indiana, United States

Lovely composition. I like the water skier too.

Spectacular, both the location and your composition! Weather was also helpful, that drama of the sky almost falling on the waters adds to the image.
