Wildensee Reloaded

Wildensee I by V-Light Photography

   Hello hello! 😀 So i’m back with a few more photos from the amazing Wildensee lake! With the temperature raising again in Vienna, i wish i could revisit this place and refresh myself, one more time before my Graphic Design studies begin this Monday! Time goes by so fast…

   The mountain on the right side, while it might seem kinda tiny through my ultra wide lens, is called Rinnerkogel (2012 meters), it’s about 1.5 hours away from Wildensee and you would need about 3 hours to climb it cause it’s quite steep. I didn’t attempt to do this, not this time but on my next visit, why not? 😀 The view from up there must be magical!

   It was actually quite an experience to lay down on the grass and not on a sandy beach as i’m used to! Most flowers were dried up but those purple bells were so beautiful and also rare if i’m not mistaken. There was certainly a kind of purple flower in the area that you are not allowed to pick. I wouldn’t dare to disturb them anyway 😀 When laying on the grass, you also need to be careful of cow dung… It’s everywhere!!! 😛 Keep that in mind on your next alpine adventure and bring a blanket!

Wildensee Panorama by V-Light Photography

   We are here!!! May i present to you Wildensee. Located 1535 meters above sea level, the Wildensee lake has a length of 430 meters, width 240 meters and maximum depth 44 meters.

   Imagine you’ve been hiking for about 4 hours up some steep mountainside under the hot summer sun to finally reach this little paradise! You go down the little hill, yearning to get closer to the water…and you see this…

   The water is usually cold but that day it was about 20C, that’s what the few people who were there, reported in total excitement. You think to yourself, only 20 degrees Celsius??? I’ve been used to swimming in the sea, where it’s certainly a lot warmer… But then you think, you came all the way up here and you are not gonna dive in? Impossible! So strip down to your bikini and run into the crystal clear water, that is of drinking quality!  After the initial shock and a few screams, you keep swimming, mesmerized by the amazing view around you…After a few minutes you can’t feel the cold anymore and you can celebrate your victory!
