Photographer's Note

Lago di Misurina in the Dolomites saw the ice speed skating races of the 1956 Olympic Games at Cortina d'Ampezzo.
As far as I know it was the last time that Olympic speed skating was done on a natural lake. But those were the times when the (west) German team had their training on Frillensee, a shivering cold place near Inzell, difficult to access and without direct sunlight from October far into April.
