May 14, 2022 - Early in the morning at the Lake Ammersee

Admittedly, to experience and photograph a sunrise in the summertime, you have to get up pretty early. If it is also a photo location that is about 3 hours drive away, then a longer but leisurely night drive is also announced.

With a length of 16 km and a width of 6 km and a depth of up to 81 meters, the Ammersee, the third largest lake in Bavaria west of Munich, is not just a beautiful bathing lake.
