Snow Shoeing in the Tuxer Alps, Tirol, Austria

Last weekend I had a good weekend in the Tuxer Alps, snow shoeing. Saturday was a brilliantly sunny day but with a very stron Föhn wind blowing up from the south. It led to some very impressive cloud formations which were blown along at a tremendous speed. I took these shots whilst climbing the Vennspitze (2390m) which is above Paduan.

During Saturday night it started to snow which lasted well into Sunday. Changes in weather just completely change the atmosphere of a place. The last shot, taken on Sunday is looking down onto a small hamlet near Lippenhof. By the way this area is near the Brenner Pass which leads over into Italy.

  1. The “Wildseespitze” is nearly a bit intimidating, very impressive! The clouds seem to be a huge avalanche. Like the shot:-).
