Photographer's Note

This is the view from the entrance to the Eisreisenwelt Cave, the World of the Ice Giants. The Ice Giants are large ice formations that form in this cold cave. The cave is close to Werfen, in the Tennengebirge Mountains, and you can take a bus from the town to the cliff below the cave. From there you walk, then catch a cable car, then walk some more to get to the cave. You can see the walking track has a roof on it as it approaches the cave, to protect people from rocks that often fall down the cliff face.

The view is spectacular, looking out over the Salzach valley below and to the high Alps on the horizon. We seem to be very high up here, but the cave is only halfway up the cliff face.
