Morning haze over a lake in Berchtesgadnerland, Germany. This deep fjord like lake was carved out by glaciers in the last ice age. It was one of the most painted alpine lakes of the late romantic era and a personal favourite place of the artist himself. This place is the closest one can get to heaven on this earth in the artists own opinion.
