16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Altered Images
Summit attack

The image shows the summit of Germany’s tallest mountain “Zugspitze”. This mountain is on the bucket list of many European mountaineers. On a sunny day hundreds of mountaineers try to attack the summit. Therefore, there is lots of traffic on the small crest just before the summit cross. Some people want to take a picture of their success in front of the cross whereas others are just approaching and want to get through.
