Each upcoming landscape photographer looks for the prefect spot for exercising without heavy hiking and climbing. Here is one perfect spot for your training. Gosausee and the “Gasthof Gosausee”. We stumbeled across this spot via a short trip trough upper austria. We just wanted to go the Laser Alpin via ferrata and as we have not very much time we booked the nearest Hotel, directly at the end of the lake. A very lucky circumstance.
As we arrived at the lake we recognize that this is a very common spot for tourists, but we had the benefit to stay for one night. So we had the chance to take pictures from the lake and its dachstein panorama during all light settings. First some pics on early afternoon, then as the sun dropped behind the mountains. And as we stay directly on the lake, early in the morning, as there were no people, we could also take some drone pics and catch the very nice lightning during the sunrise. So if you want to try some new lenses or filters, and dont want to hike kilometers to a very nice spot, the gosausee is perfect.
By the way: the Gasthof Gosausee was very comfortable and has a delicous dinner and breakfast.
If you can effort some more time, there is a chairlift to Gablonzerhütte, it seemed as if there is also a great view ;D
A short tip: I have created a list of fotospots via Google Maps marks. So you can save your spots and find them very fast if necessary.
