Kampenwand in Evening Light

Kampenwand, landmark of the Chiemgau alps and it's name-giving rocky ridge, aglow in evening light. Seen from Feldwies/Chiemsee, May 2010.

The German word for comb is “Kamm”, and the verb “kämmen” (for combing) becomes “kampen” in Bavarian dialect. I want to believe that the rock outcroppings that form the spine-like ridge of Kampenwand are actually combing through the clouds, on some days. :-)
