Default EK II from Berchtesgaden

Picked this up last summer at a little antique shop in Berchtesgaden.
I really like the looks of it and thought I'd share. Hope you enjoy.

In case you're not sure where that last shot was taken....
I had to throw all the tourists off the mountain to get this picture.
Wasn't keen on their choice of clothing. Bright stripes of yellow, red, green, blue and white.
They were ruining my photo!

Thanks guys. Glad you enjoyed. The camera is put away for now, so no reverse shot.
Did you notice anything different about that GWL pilot's badge??

One more shot for you....CEJ marked Observer...and some EK's to make Geroge happy.

Super photos Tim!

Your EK looked "elegant", you should be a photographer for National Geographic!!

I'd love to go to the Eagle's Nest.....looks like a great attraction!

Did it live up to your expectations?

That tall beer you took photos of looked fantastic! What a view!

Be sure to post more pic's if you've got them and thanks for showing.

Regards,
Mike

National Socialist Geographic you mean?
I had a really great time at Obersalzberg. Especially since we stayed here....
