Buna Adrian,
O imagine ce imi aminteste de "Stapanul inelelor".
Excelent realizata avand contraste ce creeaza mult dramatism.
Numai bine!

Hello Adrian

Hi Adrian

Great landscape of these Swiss peaks. There is nothing like this in Australia and so I am always in awe of such majestic snow-capped shots. This was is perfectly composed in my opinion, with a pek on either side and just the right amount of sky. I guess its a godd example of "the rule of thirds".

Hi Adrian,

The black and white of the mountains are striking - especially with the pale blue sky and the clouds. I have only seen Switzerland in the summer so this is a special treat for me. You have composed it perfectly.


Hello Adrian,

A great shot of this majestic snowy top mountain with such natural beauty & details. Very nicely composed & presented. TFS & regards.

Lieber Adrian,
Ich sehe, Du warst nicht inaktiv in der kurzen Zeit, in der Du in Zermatt oben warst! Die Berge sind nicht immer einfach zu fotografierern, besonders, wenn das Licht nicht sehr günstig ist. Hier hast Du den Kontrast weiss/schwarz gut hervorgehoben. Uebrigens bieten sie jetzt nicht mehr den gleichen Anblick mit dem Schnee, der gefallen ist.
Mein Vater hat ein Buch geschrieben, das alle graphischen Ansichten des Matterhorns zeigt, besonders aus dem 19. Jahrhundert. Man kann dieses Buch in Zermatt kaufen.
Herzliche Grüsse auch von Julian

Ciao Adrian. Another good mountainscape with right light's managemente and sharp. Amazing atmosphere.

Hello Adrian,
A fine mountainscape taken with excellent sharpness and lighting to show the contrast between the rock crags and the snow-covered parts, the whole making an interesting pattern in a pleasing composition.
Thanks and have a good weekend,

Nitidez y bien representada la magnitud de la grandeza de esas montañas. Buena luz y encuadre.

Hi Adrian
Excellent presentation.Your image is well composed with an excellent DOF.Detail are also excellent.
TFS Michel

a really wonderful scenery !
great geometry

have a happy new year!


Dear Adrian,
A good presentation of the view from the Gornergrat in the afternoon.

I see the sun is already low, the rays just kissing the top of the mountain on the left.

We stayed at the Hotel Gornergrat several nights in summer and had the pleasure to see the views at all times of the day. It is such a famous, beautiful sight - it is difficult - to stop taking photographs.

It looks, as if there was not so much snow this year...

A fascinating landscape, very well presented.

Thanks also for your kind words for my green beetle,
Kind regards

Hi Adrian.
Great picture with fantastic colors...Personally I liked black and white....Well presented picture...Good work..Tfs.
