Upwind
Ascent towards the Wedelhütte in the late afternoon, in the direction of the soon to be setting sun. Klaus takes off over the reservoir and leaves no doubt that he is a professional paraglider. Like an eagle, he glides a few metres above the water – for a photo in front of the spectacular Zillertal vista.
Ascent
Shortly after sunrise, Anna strolls along a small lake below the Kreuzjoch. Enjoying the magic of the moment. And the view into the distance, where the peaks of Gabler, Reichenspitze, and Wildgerlosspitze complete the picture-perfect panorama.
Departure
Tom has patiently waited for the right moment. When the clouds above the Stillup reservoir part and create an extraordinary luminous atmosphere. This makes the magnificent green of the lake and the power of the waterfall look like a picture from a fairy tale book.
Performance
Roman set off while it was still dark. In order to be able to pedal at sunrise on the plateau near the Torseen lakes for extraordinary shots. With the splendid silhouette of the Alps behind him, he treats the photographer to little moments of great happiness.
