Photo from "Hohe Tauern National Park", in Osttirol Austria at 1797m height.
The "Hohe Tauern National Park" is the largest nature reserve of the Alps.
A wild, primeval landscape and a landscape cultivated by mountain farmers.
These are the two faces of the Hohe Tauern National Park. The nature reserve encompasses sweeping, primeval Alpine landscapes, such as glaciers, rock faces and turf, as well as mountain pasture landscapes which have been carefully and painstakingly cultivated for centuries.
The Hohe Tauern National Park was established in 1981 and is therefore Austria's first National Park. During the following decades the National Park, which covers parts of the three provinces of Carinthia, Salzburg and Tyrol, developed into the largest nature reserve in Central Europe, with an area of over 1,834 km2.
The photo was taken with a Canon digital camera. As tripod head, I used the Gigapan Epic 100.
