Spitzingsee: A little wonder on the Deutsche Alpenstraße (even on a cloudy day!)

While you read why not listen to my album ‘Electro Baroque‘ (all tracks are also available on iTunes using the link here)? Classical music using modern instruments:

or if you prefer to listen to my electro/techno album ‘Studio Valiumm‘ here are the videos (also on iTunes using the link here):

Spring Flowers by the Spitzingsee

This week I would like to share with you some photographs I took during a visit to the Spitzingsee (Spitzing Lake). This is a little lake in the Alps not far from the German Austrian border. I have to admit to having a weakness for small mountain lakes ever since I spent some time as managing director of a plastics fabrications company in the heart of the Austrian Lake District. In the summer time I would rush off at the end of each working day and drive up to one of the lakes, high in the mountains. Although the water could be a little cool the scenery was exhilarating and after spending the day sorting out business problems it was fantastic to leave all the stress behind and get a little closer to nature.

So last weekend I was determined not to be put off by the overcast sky and the drop in temperatures (incredibly for May we had 31 C on the Friday which dropped to 8 C on the Saturday – a fall of 23 degrees!) and loaded my film crew into the car and set off for the Spritzingsee. I was not disappointed. I have added many of the photos to this blog entry (my production team also took some photos of themselves having fun – I will load these into RISKKO’s Dog Blog shortly). If anyone is unsure how to find the Spitzingsee and needs instructions please contact me via the ‘reply’ link at the bottom of this blog.
