I’ve taken this photo of Lake Hallstat and surrounded by Austrian Alps through the airplane window from an altitude of 11,000m during flight from Zurich to Singapore.
Lake Hallstatt (Hallstätter See in Geraman language) is located in the Salzkammergut in central Austria. Its surface is approximately 8.55 km² and its maximum depth is 125 m.
The Salzkammergut stretches from the City of Salzburg eastwards along the Austrian Alpine Foreland and the Northern Limestone Alps, spanning the federal states of Upper Austria, Salzburg, and Styria. The name Salzkammergut literally means "Estate of the Salt Chamber" and derives from the Imperial Salt Chamber, the authority charged with running the precious salt mines of the Habsburg Monarchy.

I love aerial views!
That's a wonderful mountaineous landscape!
The quality is not the best, but it's always hard to take pictures from airplanes... I like it anyway!
TFS - congrats,

I really like this majestic view from a airplane window.
Although through the window, the picture is still in very good quality.

For a picture taken at 11,000m the sharpness is very good. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the mountains and of the lake. There is a good contrast between the colors of the scenery. Have a nice day.

Dai treni agli aerei
Il complesso di montagne sembra vicinissimo .
E le nevi imbiancano le valli .
Una scatto insolito ma efficace .

this area is very beautiful and its view from such an altitude is very interesting and fascinating. Your picture is lovely capturing so many details of the landscape, offering us a great view of the way the various magnificent landforms make this fascinating whole. I love the blue and white tones that prevail all over the frame and the dim green that reminds us the character of this place. Well done and thank you!
All the best, have a good evening,

Fantastic clear view over the Hallstat, and the surrounding Alp's. A place I must visit, but not in near future.
Great colors and fine clean window seat you had.
About the football team, I was not even aware there was a game, and anyhow - we are drawn to fan their city opponents here.
