Lake Eibsee

Matthew David Ernst, RCAF

Friend of PIXEO Matt Ernst shares this stunning lakefront view of Lake Eibsee with the Zugspitze mountains forming a flawless backdrop. Lake Eisbee is an unbelievably pretty lake with dazzling emerald green water in the rugged Zugspitze mountain region. This privately-owned lake, with its eight islands, is considered to be a hidden jewel of the Bavarian Alps. Travelers are welcome to explore the lake by boat or by foot along its hiking trails. In winter, the entire lake freezes over, transforming it into a magical winter land and a paradise for skiers. Thanks for sharing Matt! (Grainau, Germany)

Sultan Sanctuary Farm

Sydney shares a great close up of a sunflower about to bloom. Very unconventional and very beautiful shot with rich contrast and stunning soft background. The seperatio is spectacularly executed. Sunflower fields are wonderful place to take photos, but unfortunately a lot of folks don’t respect the land and damage the flowers. That’s why we love this location so much. Sultan Sanctuary Farm has walking paths through their sunflower fields and welcome visitors to come take pictures when the sunflowers are in bloom (roughly mid August give or take a week depending on the season) There is a donation box at the head of the main path if you choose to support this family run farm and animal sanctuary. All the donations go towards feeding and providing shelter for the animals in the sanctuary.
