I took another ‘cabin’ photo with the peak a little bit hidden behind the hill. There is also a nice chapel as you can see on the foreground of this picture.

I took the pictures for this panorama around 6:30am with long exposures. It was snowing over night so I felt the photos might have a ‘polar’ feel..
