Photograph of Seealpsee by Alex Nichol


After clambering to the top of Ebenalp, I hiked down the Altenalp Türm until I arrived at Seealpsee, an idyllic turquoise lake nestled between the mountain peaks. The sun was going down by the time I arrived, which made for some pretty dramatic shots. I had the place to myself, except for a couple ploshing about in a rowing boat.
