Looks like there is nothing more exciting than a sunset boat trip on a mountain lake. Snapshot taken at Hallstatt in Austria this past Saturday.
Taken with the Olympus PEN-F and the mZuiko 14-150mm F/4-5.6 travel zoom. Image specs 1/250 sec @ f/5.6, ISO 1250 and 150mm focal length.
We had a splendid weekend in the Alps with almost summer like temperatures. More pics to come.

This week’s Monday Mountains features majestic Monte Rosa (Mont Rose), the second highest mountain in the Alps and of Europe, with its main summit (Dufour Peak) rising to 4,634 m (15,203 ft) above sea level. The mountain is on the border between France (Valais Region) and Italy (Piedmont and Aosta Valley Regions). From the Swiss side Monte Rosa can be reached from Zermatt which also sports the world famous Matterhorn.
I took this photo on a freezing morning (15 degrees Fahrenheit) from the Italian ski resort of Champoluc. The wind was blowing ice clouds off the mountain.

Have a great week!
