Schonalmsee Lake Eclipse, Austria by Oliver Benes

For me, one of the most stressful photoshoots. The road ended earlier than I expected, so I had to somehow get to the top. The mountain is named Tauernhöhe and it is 2328 meters high. On the top I prepared camera and tripod and started waiting for the clouds to disappear. Numerous storms were passing by all around me, and sometimes there was even a lightning in the distance - it was also raining most of the way up. Even Though it miraculously cleared. As soon as the moonlight began to shine, clouds covered the sky again within 10 minutes. That's why I consider this shooting was quite a miracle.
