Challenge #3 in the Landscapes on purpose series. Hosted by Sugarbaker.
Challenge has finished
Show your best landscapes that weren't just opportunistic... show something you had to hike for... something you had to get up early (or stay up late) for. Maybe you rented a plane or skied through some out-of-bounds terrain to get the view.

Zugspitze, from Austria to Germany Once i took a great picture of this, but with a bad pocket cam. Last year i tried 4 times to get it with an SLR but never met the lighting conditions. 1900m of height difference and climbing on brittle rocks is required on every try. This year i'll do it again.
