FEBRUARY 2007 – Portions of the pier for boat excursions across Lake Ammersee in Herrsching, Bavaria, have been removed, and the remains form a bizarre and inaccessible island. Photo © Mark Zanzig/zanzig.com
The story behind the image
Lake Ammersee in Bavaria is a valuable destination at all times of the year. On a sunny winter day in 2007 we drove from Munich to Herrsching and found a little village without the busy streams of tourists and day visitors that are typical for spring to autumn.
Apparently, someone had decided to renovate the pier where the boat excursions across the lake arrive and depart. And so large parts of the pier had been removed. What remained looked like an inaccessible island to me. The calm surface of the water and the bright and sunny sky created an awesome image that required surprisingly little editing.
I still love today.
