[ #TBT From July 19, 2016 ] Top Shot: Winter Sunrise | Photograph by Gregor Thelen
“Just before dawn the sun rises over the Hintersee National Park in Germany. The mist clears over the dead calm lake giving a mystic view of the mountains greeting the morning sun,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Gregor Thelen. “Like a land untouched by human hand the quietness and peace is tangible in the delicate shades and majestic nature rising from the night.”
