The Sylvensteinsee

A thin sheet of ice covers the surface of the water.

This isn’t a place as such, the bridge spanning the Sylvensteinsee offers stunning views  towards the distant Karwendel range. The see was created as a dam in the upper Isar valley  to prevent the river Isar running dry in the summer months, now it is also used for generating power and preventing floods. On days like this the view is stunning, when ever I drive this way through it’s worth stopping and taking it all in.
