Offensee Mirror

Hello my friends! 😀

   I was away for a few days, visiting my relatives in upper Austria 🙂 It also happened to be a very hot period with another persistent heatwave hitting Austria, so visiting the mountains seemed like the perfect getaway.

   First stop was Offensee, a beautiful lake located between mountains, 649 meters above sea level. The lake has a maximum length and width of about 900 meters each and 38 meters maximum depth. During summer, the water temperature can reach 22 Celsius but i am sure that it was a lot warmer when i took a dive in on the way back.

   A hiking path starts from Offensee that leads up to Rinnerhütte (1474 meters) and from there you can make it to many different mountain tops! I started my hike from Offensee and reached Wildensee at 1,535 meters above sea level for a refreshing swim! It was a dream! 😍

Stay tuned for more photos! 😀

    1. 😀 It was still quite fresh at 7:30 am…but the heat was unbearable as the day advanced… It was good to know that a lake was waiting on the top of the mountains…and this lake was waiting on the way down again 🙂

    1. Thank you dear Nathan 🙂 You should really come for a visit, i’d be glad to show you around! There are so many beautiful places to be discovered, i’m just starting out! 😀

    1. 😀 The morning light was really flattering and everything looked really magical! I had trouble with the rest of the photos though cause from the moment the sun went up the mountains, the light was already really harsh and i had no clouds… I really wanted some clouds…
