[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

End of october is an ideal moment to go for a trek in the alpine areas. The autumnal light illuminates the landscapes so beautifully and mostly there is already snow on the higher peaks and larches turn to orange, which makes a most interesting color-contrast. I have seen this trio of solitary larches at altitude 2000m and thought that this picture could well illustrate this transition-period. Soon at this place there will be snow too, lasting for several months.

Perfect scenery, captured with a sense for composition and sharpness illustrating indeed what you wanted it to.


Ciao Anne, fascinating mountasin landscape with fantastic trees, splendid light and wonderful autumnal colors, very well done, my friend, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

belle vue sur la montagne où vous pourrez respirer l'humeur d'automne par la couleur des arbres et avec des sommets enneigés pour l'hiver prochain..
bien vu,Anne

I love this autumnal landscape, Anne. The brown trees in the foreground create a lovely contrast with the mountains covered with the light layer of snow. You have framed the image with great artistic discretion.
I returned from my native place in the mountains yesterday. My mother passed away at 95 on 15th October and I had to attend her last rites. I noticed a similar light flurry of snow on the mountains in my area and took a few pictures of them. I might post one shortly.
Warm regards.

Hello Anne,
A beautiful capture with lovely scenery, details & composition. Well done & presented with a great POV. TFS & best wishes!


Hello Anne,
Here is the pic I knew you would share with us this year. The high peaks and the beautiful Larch trees make a great combination, especially the snowy peaks jutting out from what appears to be from beneath your own position on the hillside.
I hope you have a great weekend...

Liebe Anne.
Wunderbare Herbst/Winter-Szene mit schönen beeindruckenden Bäumen. Große Zusammensetzung mit dem Schnee bedeckten Bergen. Farben und Beleuchtung sind perfekt
Wünsche einen schönen Sonntag.

very ..very nostalgic, and powerful image dear Anne! The muted colors reveals the end of a wonderful summer and portrays the chilly face of the approaching winter. Expressive work Anne! In the workshop I am presenting you a different alternative of this wonderful photo. Hope you like it ... take care!

Hello Anne
A superb photo, well chosen point of view, perfect light and detail.
regards yiannis

beautiful landscape. good colors and lighting. tfs.

Hallo Anne,
da hast du aber ein tolles Motiv erwischt. Die drei Bäume stehen wunderbar vor den schneebedeckten Bergen. Bei deinem Bild gefällt mir vor allem, dass du den Herbst gleich mit dem Winter verbindest. Auch wenn ich zugeben muss, dass es mir vor dem Winter schon wieder graust.
Viele Grüße,

Hello Anne,
