I must say this looks like a nice view. Looks like a cold place.

Thanks a lot Josh! The Schmittenhöhe is well known for it's entirely open views to the entire chain of the Hohe Tauern and the fairly close Glockner group in particular!
Cheers,
Eric

Thanks a lot, Troy (correct?)! So nice to hear this from you...the Glockner group is indeed a fantastic part of the Austrian mountains - not only because it has Austria's highest! - and I hope that this year, either in August or in September, I can finally find the time to do some real hiking there as well as in the neighboring Venediger group, and post some really great close-up shots!
All the best to you,
Eric

Am I right there are 2 dams or some other man-made structures in the valley?

You're right - the lower dam is that of the Wasserfallboden lake and the upper dam belongs to Mooserboden lake!
Thanks a lot for your comment and for your vote!
