Lago Saoseo5th Place - Lago Saoseo"I shot this picture in the summer of the 1999 (July). This is a photo printed on film and then scanned. Along the road that leads to 'Bernina pass' (and then later in St. Moritz in Engadina) after leaving the car and after 1.30 hours of walking I reach this beautiful place. This is truly a masterpiece of nature." -- Daniele Ursini, Sondrio, Italy
Still Too Cold for Bathing4th Place - Still Too Cold for Bathing"The photo shows the 'Eibsee' which is a lake beneath the 'Zugspitze' - that is the highest mountain of Germany (2.962 m) near the border to Austria. The Eibsee is 35 m deep, but has some very flat parts and also some little islands in it. Because of the crystal clear water, which looks green depending on the light, it's one of the most beautiful lakes in southern Germany. I took the photo while hiking around the lake during my holidays in the Alps." -- Axel Rosenberg, Schwerin, Germany
Tour de Famelon3rd Place - Tour de Famelon"This is a photo of the 'Tour de Famelon' in the Swiss Alps, near Leysin, canton of Vaud. I shot it with my Panasonic Lumix LX2 during a solitary snowshoe trek in the region. I have enhanced the contrast and the saturation in Lightroom." -- Maurice, Martigny, Switzerland
