A view on some smaller peaks over the Rhone Valley

We can seee very few snow on these peaks, it hasn't snown since end of 2010. This makes appear these mountains in a very graphical way. This reminded me of the engravings of 19th century, which showed in a very precise way the shapes and egdges of the Alpine mountains.

Liebe Anne,
überaus malerisch, wie sich ja doch noch ein Hauch von rötlichem Licht auf der linken vorderen Flanke des fernen Gebirgsstocks aus dem Blaugrau erhebt. Von so zeitlos vornehmer Eleganz wie eine von John Ruskin's feinen Graphiken. Mit Dank und herzlichen Grüßen ins wunderschöne Valais,

Ciao Anne, fascinating mountain landscape full of snow, splendid light and wonderful clouds, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Chère Anne,

Thanks for sharing this wanderful image!

Bonjour Anne,
A well-composed view of snow-covered mountain crags. There is just enough snow to up show every detail of these peaks, like as you say an old detailed engraving. The lighting through the clouds adds a fine effect.
This image could be almost B&W, but I'm glad you kept the slight colour nuances.
Merci pour ce partage et bonne soirée.

hello Anne, a colored b/w wonderful photo, very good performance of this wild beauty! regards Nasos

Hi Anne,
Very beautiful mountains with great composition and excellent POV.

Hello Anel,
Very beautiful and similar, in a way, to "Patch of Blue" that I posted earlier. Very good composition and lovely texture. Well done.

Waooo !
realmente impresionante; una toma que te "mete" en la escena y te hace soñar
en esas grandezas por unos momentos. Buena profundidad y captura de los blancos.

Abrazo: Josep Ignasi.
