[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

The Pennine Alps (also Valais Alps) are a mountain range in the western part of the Alps. They are located in Switzerland (Valais) and Italy (Piedmont and the Aosta Valley.
Unlike many other mountain ranges, the higher peaks are often located outside the main chain and found themselves between the northern valleys (Grand Combin, Weisshorn, Mischabel, Weissmies

The main chain (watershed between the Mediterranean Sea and Adriatic Sea) runs from west to east on the border between Italy (south) and Switzerland (north). From Mont Vélan, the first high summit east of St Bernard Pass, the chain rarely goes below 3000 metres and contains many four-thousanders such as Matterhorn or Monte Rosa. The valleys are quite similar on both side of the border, being generally oriented perpendicular to the main chain and descending progressively into the Rhône Valley on the north and the Aosta Valley on the south. (Wikipedia)

The mountains on the picture are situated not far from the well known Mischabel-group.
A fine layer of snow recovers them marking the transition towards wintertime.

Hallo Anne,
schöne Landschaftsaufnahme mit gut gewähltem Aufnahmestandort. Mir gefällt der Übergang von dem schneefreien, braunen Vordergrund hin zu den schneebedeckten Bergen ganz besonders gut. Eine tolle Landschaft.

Ciao Anne, fascinating mountain lamdscape with a lot of snow and wonderful autumnal colors, excellent clarity and splendid light, very well done my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

Good day dear Anne.
Seems the winter is already in your door steps, and this thin white veil in the mountains confirms my words. How quickly the year passed, like it was yesterday when we discussed your spring flower images. Pleasant view towards those peaks. The yellow dry grass in the foreground brings some warm nostalgia for the past autumn days. I wish to be there, Anne ......at list for an hour. The brutally hot summer is already killing us here....

Bonjour Anne,
A fine view of your Alps powdered with the early winter snow.
I like the side lighting and the late autumn-coloured tree make a fine FG in this fine composition.
Merci et bonne dimanche,
