This mountain did not like me / Dieser Berg mochte mich nicht

in #travelfeed2 years ago (edited)

Today I really had the feeling that a mountain does not like me.

Heute hatte ich wirklich das Gefühl, dass ein Berg mich nicht mag.

Mangart

Yesterday evening I decided that today I wanted to climb a mountain in the Italian-Slovenian border area and photograph the sunrise. The weather forecast was good and I happily got up at 3:00 to see the sunrise on the Mangart mountain, which is 2,679 meters high (8,783 ft).

Gestern Abend beschloss ich, dass ich heute auf einen Berg im italienisch-slowenischen Grenzgebiet steigen und den Sonnenaufgang fotografieren wollte. Die Wettervorhersage war gut und ich stand mit Freude um 3:00 Uhr auf, um den Sonnenaufgang am 2.677 Meter hohen Mangart zu erleben.

At about 5:00 clock I reached the Mangart saddle at 2,072 meters above sea level. The road to the saddle is tolled in the summer months and only 2.20 meters wide, but there are plenty of passages.
All parking areas were empty and so I was happy to have the summit for myself. The sky was starry, but there was a cold wind.

Um ca 5:00 Uhr erreichte ich den Mangart Sattel in 2.072 Metern Seehöhe. Die Straße auf den Sattel ist in den Sommermonaten mautpflichtig und nur 2,20 Meter breit, aber es gibt genügend Stellen zum Ausweichen.
Alle Parkflächen waren leer und so freute ich mich, den Gipfel für mich allein zu haben. Der Himmel war sternenklar, aber es ging ein kalter Wind.

There are 3 official routes to the top of the Mangart: the Normal Route, the Slovenian Via Ferrata and the Italian Via Ferrata. Since I've never been to the Mangart, I wanted to go the normal route. Unfortunately, the paths were not sufficiently signposted, so I then climbed the Slovene via ferrata to the summit.
The Slovenian via ferrata is difficult, but not as difficult as the Italian via ferrata. Of course, I did not have climbing gear with me - just a headlamp, because it was still quite dark, although the full moon was shining a bit.

Es gibt 3 offizielle Wege auf den Gipfel des Mangart: Den Normalweg, den Slowenischen Klettersteig und den Italienischen Klettersteig. Nachdem ich noch nie auf dem Mangart gewesen bin, wollte ich die Normalroute gehen. Leider waren die Wege aber nicht ausreichend beschildert, so dass ich dann am Slowenischen Klettersteig zum Gipfel stieg.
Der Slowenische Klettersteig ist schwierig, aber nicht so schwierig, wie der Italienische Klettersteig. Kletterausrüstung hatte ich natürlich nicht dabei - nur eine Stirnlampe, weil es noch ziemlich dunkel gewesen ist, obwohl der Vollmond ein bisschen leuchtete.

At 07:20, exactly at sunrise, I arrived at the summit cross and I was happy, because the view was beautiful and the sky above me cloudless. The sun had already risen, but it was hidden behind thick clouds. I could have imagined what would come next, because a few minutes later, thick wet fog with strong and cold wind pulled up the mountain.

Um 7:20 Uhr, genau zum Sonnenaufgang kam ich am Gipfelkreuz an und ich freute mich, denn die Aussicht war wunderschön und der Himmel über mir wolkenlos. Die Sonne war zwar schon aufgegangen, aber sie war hinter dicken Wolken versteckt. Da hätte ich mir schon denken können, was gleich kommen würde, denn wenige Minuten später zog dichter nasser Nebel mit dem starken und kalten Wind auf den Berg.

As long as I still could see enough, I shot a few photos quickly, but did not notice that the front lens of the lens iced, because the viewfinder my camera was already iced and I photographed in good hope, that I get the image that I wanted. Because of the wet and cold weather wanted I do not open the display.

So lange ich noch genug Sicht gehabt habe, habe ich noch schnell ein paar Fotos geschossen, dabei aber nicht bemerkt, dass die Frontlinse des Objektives vereiste, denn der Sucher meiner Kamera war bereits vereist und ich fotografierte auf gut Glück und wegen der nasskalten Witterung wollte ich das Display nicht aufklappen.

The clouds around the sun became stronger and from the other side the cold fog moved up, so that I did not see much anymore and made my way back to the valley.

Die Wolken um die Sonne wurden stärker und von der anderen Seite zog der kalte Nebel nach oben, so dass ich nicht mehr viel sah und mich auf den Rückweg ins Tal machte.


❖ please click the image for fullsize view ❖

Because of the fog and the cold many rocks were frozen, making the way back via the via ferrata rather dangerous, but after about two and a half hours I was back at the car. I had actually wanted to go down the normal track, on which also children go to the summit, but at the summit there was no indication whatsoever of this path.

Wegen dem Nebel und der Kälte vereisten viele Felsen, wodurch der Rückweg über den Klettersteig ziemlich gefährlich wurde, aber nach etwa zweieinhalb Stunden war ich zurück beim Auto. Ich hatte eigentlich über den Normalsteig, über den auch Kinder zum Gipfel gehen, nach unten gehen wollen, aber am Gipfel war überhaupt kein Hinweis auf diesen Steig zu sehen gewesen.

This post should have been a description of the way to the top of the Mangart and I wanted to take photos of the path and the beautiful view that should extend to the Adriatic Sea, but the mountain was apparently against it. Maybe next time I'll have more luck.

Dieses Posting hätte eigentlich eine Beschreibung des Weges auf den Gipfel des Mangart werden sollen und ich habe Fotos des Weges und der wunderschönen Aussicht, welche bis zur Adria reichen soll, machen wollen, aber der Berg war anscheinend dagegen gewesen. Vielleicht habe ich nächstes Mal mehr Glück.

Zum Glück habe ich vor ein paar Tagen die ersten beiden Bilder des Mangarts von unten im Tal gemacht, denn heute wäre das nicht möglich gewesen.

Die ersten beiden Fotos vom Mangart habe ich glücklicherweise bereits vor einigen Tagen vom Tal aus gemacht, denn heute wäre das nicht möglich gewesen.

All photos taken with the Canon EOS R and one of these lenses: RF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM, EF 70-200mm f/4 L IS II USM, EF 16-35mm 1:4L IS USM.

@johannpiber sorry to hear that you plan didn't work out. But you still managed to get stunning photos.
Hope that next time weather and the Mangart mountain will be more cooperative with you.

Amazing climb, @johannpiber. That rock face looks dangerous.

You captured some beautiful shots. I really like the one with the cross at the summit and the next one with the clouds. ☁️ 🧗‍♂️

Thank you so much, Jo 🙂
For a few minutes I could take some quite nice images, until the fog came ;)
What do you prefer - !BEER or !COFFEEA10 or both ?

Welcome Johann and thanks. Either one is fine.

I don’t seem to be accumulating many beer for some reason so I like to get them. 😊

OK, Jo, I hope I won't forget to give you !BEER and !COFFEEA10 from now on 😊

Hey @curationvoter, here is a little bit of BEER for you. Enjoy it!

against the pics, yeah. bad luck.. things like that happen! (I nearly have said: all of the time!)

front lens of the lens iced <--

damn! how it did not spoil the pics?..
I wanted to say, that you've got a pretty solid series of captures! maybe they miss the only one you needed most, of a sunrise?..

!BEER for your great efforts
frankly, I could not imagine myself getting oso early and going so far, to take a shot!

ps. i've googled a bit and have read here and there about stacking in PShop and in HeliconFocus, seems I am absolutely not in the know of the new techniques! what I was doing, is a good old school layers stitching, which is completely time-swallowing, unrational and out-dated, as I see it now.
can we develope the communication about stacking?

Thank you so much for your reply, @qwerrie 😊
The ice did spoil many pics - I wiped the ice off and I changed the lens, and then I stopped photographing, because everything around me was just white fog ;)

Yes, the sun was visible at first, but then you could hardly see her through the thick fog and clouds.

Thank you so much for the !BEER :)
Getting up early is so easy, when I don't have to go to work ;) lol

Photoshop and HeliconFocus are doing the same as you do, but faster ;)
I do use Photoshop only, and after letting it do its work I always have to edit the layers to my needs, just as you do.

Have a great day :)

!BEER

Thank you for the !BEER 🙂

Very nice photos! The mountain is a bit shy in the early morning!

Quite a mix of scenery! The fog makes the mountain more interesting!
The sunset is full of energy!

I do love fog and foggy scenes, but if you are on top of a mountain and a cold and stormy wind blows the fog so that you cannot see anything anymore, and if the fog freezes on your clothing, then I don't like it so much ;)
But it was a great day on the mountain and a cool experience :)

Thank you so much for your reply, dear @kaminchan, have a great day 😊
!BEER

Oh! No! The fog can get frozen on your clothes! Too foggy to navigate is quite dangerous! Need a big torch light!!

Thank you @kaminchan, I have come down safely from the mountain, but when the frozen fog melted I was quite wet ;)

Danke dir, gesehen habe ich leider nicht viel, außer die kurze Zeit am Gipfel - der Aufstieg war dunken und beim Abstieg war durchgehend dirchter Nebel und starker Wind. Aber insgesamt gesehen hat es doch Spaß gemacht :)

Hey @johannpiber, here is a little bit of BEER for you. Enjoy it!

I love your sunrise photos and am so happy you made it back down the mountain safely. It is interesting how quickly the weather changed on you.

Thank you so much for your nice comment, @sunscape 🙂
The weather can change very quick in the mountains. This is, why you always have to be prepared and take clothes for every possible weather situation with you.

I sure can understand that! Glad you were safe.

Thank you again, I was glad too, because although I had the right gear with me, being alone on a mountain in bad weather is always dangerous.
!BEER



Hey @sunscape, here is a little bit of BEER for you. Enjoy it!

It is really difficult to climb a mountain in the Italian-Slovenian border area and these are awesome photography.

Thank you so much, that you like the photos I could make on that mountain, @kamrunnahar 🙂

Hey @johannpiber, here is a little bit of BEER for you. Enjoy it!

the photos say otherwise. i like a nice fog and some clouds and a bright orange ball of sun.

Of course, I do also like a nice fog very much, but not if the fog makes all rocks wet and the cold wind freezes it, so that hiking down a mountain is quite dangerous ;)
Thank you, that you like the images @torico 🙂
!BEER

oh good point, that wd be quite scary. happy you make it home safe. :) sending you a warm drink...

😉 I took care, thanks a lot - a warm drink would be a !COFFEEA10 or a warm !BEER 😉

Very interesting sir johannpiber! If the lens were freezing over you must have been darn cold! Those are some great views, I like the first two the best.

There was a very wet fog and a cold wind, and the front lens got slightly frozen. So, yes, it has been quite cold up there ;)
Thank you, that you like the photos 🙂

So you are going up there in your heavy winter gear already?

No, just my hiking clothes, but I had long underwear and gloves with me.

No, no fur, just the hoodie of my cozy sweater 😉
