The Schafberg in Upper Austria, standing on a mountaintop with a 360-degree view of valleys, lakes and the Alps gives you the feeling of being free. For exploring the mountain chain, my wife and I walked through a mountain pine forest, with men-high plants and arrived at a steep slope of hundreds of meters height.  Looking down gives you the feel of tingle under the skin, better to hold a respectful distance. My position was perfect for taking a photo of the abstract rocks. As the background, the horizon of the deeper valleys appear.
