Category: Sense of Place

I had just walked down a fairly steep dirt trail leading to the beach along the Forggensee, a lake with beautiful crystal blue waters. As I hiked back up the trail, the sight of the rustic bench sitting in the field with the alps in the background literally took my breath away. I felt the most amazing sense of peace.

Location: Overlooking the Forggensee, on the outskirts of Waltenhofen, Germany
