Group of the Pennine Alps forming the divide between Saastal and Mattertal (Zermatt region). The highest summit of this mountain group is the Dom (4545m) which is also the highest peak in Switzerland.
Other well-known mountains of the Mischabel are the Nadelhorn (4328m) and the Lenzspitze (4234m)

This view has been taken from the Moosalp, where it is possible to have a round-view on Bernese and Valaisans Alps. We have been there with our small TN-group from Bern-Fribourg (Dieter Meyer and Markus Peissard)and it was just great and very funny.

Hello Anne,
What a pity the three of you are not in the picture as well!! You seem to have visited a very beautiful place together! I love staying home in the summer but at the same time I'd love to go the the Alps again - summer is too short! This is a lovely view from an Alpine meadow towards this impressive snow-clad mountain in the background. I like your composition very much.
Many thanks and cheers, Ulla

Hallo Anne!

Du präsentierst uns die mächtige und prächtige Mischabelgruppe als schönes Erinnerungsbild, das für mich gleich zweifache Bedeutung hat: es werden Erinnerungen an die Kindheit als auch solche an den gestrigen, schönen Tag wach. Unter diesen Umständen spielt die vom Mittagslicht geprägte Beleuchtung keine Rolle...

Vielen Dank dafür!



THIS is how I pictured it in my mind. And perhaps that is why I am always speaking this way to Ivan and others who live nearby...also I have an original 18th century oil painting by a "semi-master" of this particular area. I tis one I grew up with hanging on my great grandmothers wall. I can see all of the similarities here..and what might be a common sighting for you is a delight for me. Very nice!

Bellissimo paesaggio montano, ottima composizione che mostra lo scenario di queste "nostre" bellissime Alpi con una efficace visione prospettica, buona nitidezza, belli e naturali i colori. Grazie e complimenti. Ciao Maurizio

Hallo Anne,

es gilt, wieder mit dem guten alten TN-Draht miteinander zu verkehren: Dein sehr geglücktes Landschaftsbild ruft bereits eine Erinnerung hervor, dabei war es erst gestern. Die Landschaften waren wirklich umwerfend auch für einen verwöhnten Kaukasus usw.-Reisenden. Hattest Du einen UV- Filter? Bin schon gespannt auf mehr!

Herzlich grüsst

Salut Anne,
A fine landscape image depicting an attractive alpine meadow with conifers and a mountain BG in a pleasing composition.
I can imagine the floral and insect life in the meadow, and it reminds me of a week's walking tour I had round the French, Swiss and Italian borders years ago. I can also image that you Dieter and Markus had a lot to do!
TFS this fine image,
Bon soirée,

Hi Anne,
You make me sad by showing this lovely picture of mountains.
Because I too am a person from the mountains living in a hot city in the northern plains of India and missing my home all the time.
I had a 3 weeks vacation but could not go because of early monsoon rains.
I thought they would spoil my trip, and lo and behold, they have now dried up and my vacation is almost over!
What a lovely image of the mountains you have shown us today!
The dark green trees in the foreground contrast so beautifully with the white mountains on the horizon.
Thanks for making my day and with warm regards,

Liebe Anne,
wunderschöner erfrischender Anblick dieser Bergwiesen im Frühsommer. Noch so viel Schnee! Wir haben in Saas-Fee vor einigen Jahren herrliche Ferienwochen verbracht, und Anblick und Name dieses eindrucksvollen Bergmassivs sind mir seither vertraut. Meine Tochter pflegte damals beharrlich "Mistgabel" statt "Mischabel" zu sagen, und das war keineswegs despektierlich gemeint.
Mit Dank für diesen befreienden Blick in die Höhen und herzlichen Grüßen,

Bonjour Anne
Un grand Bravo pour cette extraordinaire vue des massifs.
Le coté majestueux est très bien rendu, et avec cette chaleur, une note de glace donne de la fraicheur à cette magnifique prise.
Merci , amicalement
