""Gosausee dreams in shadow beneath the glittering Dachstein"",the text together with a superbe photo I saw in an article about Austria in National Geographic of august 1960.
My first thoughts were,I got to go there one time,and I was very lucky there was an opportunity last july..
We stayed in a nearby village called Gosau,just 20 minutes drive from the lake,and I soon found out the sun was at its best point in late afternoon and beginning evening.
So every night we had dinner in the one and only,very cheap and friendly Gasthof Gosausee (hotel).
From our table the panorama on the lake and the 2995m snowy Dachstein was great.
In our appartment in Gosau there was a small picture of the lake on the wall with the text:
""Dieses bild hab ich fuhr mein liebling mitgebracht,und immer in dieser platz an dich gedacht....""
(I brought this picture for my love,I was always thinking about you when I was there...)

Ce lac de Gosau et son superbe environnement montagneux est un magnifique endroit, très propice à la promenade...et à la photo.

Oostenrijk is echt een mooi land, fotografen kunnen zich daar uitleven.
Uw foto is mooi gemaakt tussen twee donkere kanten valt het licht mooi op de bergen.
Zelfs een beetje weerspiegeling doet de rest.
Heel mooi foto werk, bedankt.
Groeten uit een regen achtig Vlaanderen,

the dramatic backdrop to the lake has been captured very well with the contrasting light conditions really well handled.

Beautiful view of a lake surrounded by steeply sloping mountains. Nice contrasts between shadow and sunshine. Looks like a good place to visit some day.

What a huge sweep helped by good view point, I am really intrigued by the serene blue water, the sheen and the gentle ripples, framed by the majestic mountains on both sides. Everything works fine in this image, the rich colour tones, clarity and sense of depth, which is enhanced by the beautiful clouds as good focal as well. A breath taking capture and good presentation, Well done, TFS

Well done Jan
The dark framing focuses your eye to the majestic peaks and their reflections.

My nanna always said that Austria was one of the most beautiful countries she visited and from your photo, I can see she was right. The symmetry and reflections are marvellous and I love the natural colour and depth. The light is exquisite.
Thanks for sharing this wonderful place with us. Have a great weekend
PS: Yes my Dad is Italian (from Naples) but my mum is Australian. I'm glad the photo of Italy brought back some childhood memories and I hope that things are getting easier after the sad news you've had earlier this year
