The spearhead by KirlianCamera The spearhead by KirlianCamera

For this shot I experienced a feeling I have never experienced and it kind of changed my life. The feeling of waking up underneath an impressive peak painted silver by the moon, in complete silence and with the snow sparkling at the headlamp beams. It changed my life cause it made me realize where I always want to be and no matter how happy I am wherever I am there will always be a place where I know I can be happier. This was the awaking the night we started our trek for the Dragonlake a 2 hours trek in grassy meadows and patches of snow in order to reach an elevation of 2100 and our destination.

In the picture you can see the lake of course home of some beautiful alpine salamanders that look like dragons hence the name of the place and at the back you can see two peaks being hit by the morning sun. In the foreground the peak of Ploskos (2377m) and at the back the pointy on the peak of Gamila(2497m)

Hope you like it
