Hohe Tauern | Stausee Margaritze and Mölltal

WI_at071_514.jpg

Panoramic view down the upper Möll valley in SE direction. The Margaritze reservoir is fed by the melt water from Pasterze, one of the largest glaciers of Austria. The bright rock in the left background (Racherin, 3092 m) is calcareous mica schist. It formed through compaction and metamorphosis of deposits at the bottom of the Penninic ocean.
