The weather that hampered filming on Monday thankfully cleared for the production team as the second and final day of 'SPECTRE' shooting in Altaussee got under way on Tuesday 6th January 2015.

Daniel Craig snuck out the back entrance of the Seevilla hotel early at 6:30am to start work and make the most of the forecast clear skies. He was flown to the lake location at 7:30am by helicopter where gathered fans got to see him on a traditional 'Pl├Ątte' wooden boat. On camera, Craig had to wear a life jacket concealed underneath his costume due to the risk of falling in the icy water. The bright sunshine and lack of wind was such a contrast to the previous day shots were redone.

Filming was wrapped by late afternoon as the sun set and Craig was back at the hotel by 5pm, signing autographs for awaiting local fans.
