Beskid in Tatras

Beskid in Tatras

Hala Gąsienicowa (Gąsienicas' Pasture) still sits on the granite of the High Tatras whereas the peaks in the photo are the first outposts of the lower and gentler W Tatras, built mostly of metamorphic rocks and limestone. On the right, on Kasprowy Wierch (1985m) perches the meteorological observatory (cable car station as well). The summit in the centre is called Beskid (2012m). This is an early autumn image.

first snow ?

Beskid the last or first peak of Western Tatras in the East, so inconspicuous and really nicely captured here !

Re: first snow ?

Thanks, Tomek, I'm really glad you like it. Actually, I hesitated a bit because the scene didn't seem exciting at all :) but finally decided I liked it too:) Our golden autumn - kind of Indian summer, right?
