[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

The Mischabel group is a part of the Pennine Alps and located in Valais. It is formed by several high pics, all over 4000m altitude. The main mountains of this group are: Lenzspitze (4294m), Nadelhorn (4327m), and the highest pic Dom (4545) which is also the highest mountain totally on Swiss territory.

I have spent some days in my native Valais and have taken pictures of the landscape there.
This one from the Moosalp, which is at 2000m altitude shows the Mischabel group in the back. The weather was foggy and as it is usual on altitude the fog disappeared quite quickly. It is always impressive to see appear suddenly the high peaks behind the clouds.

Hi Anne,
Really beautiful picture. On your photos I see them Switzerland is a very beautiful country.
Regards Jiri.

Dear Anne,
it is with pleasure I see your photo of the Mischabel group.
I did not know this group before, and I thought, I knew the Valais well :-)

As soon as somebody climbs for me my book shelves, I shall scour my books for some more details about these mountains.

Thanks for providing so much information in your notes.

I do like the idea of a landscape without sun shine; as at the seaside, the clouds add interest to the picture, but also the colours appear more intensive on a cloudy day!

I also like the wide expanse of the foreground, the juicy green emphasizing the steep rock walls in the back ground, and I add your work to my theme "High Altitude"

Thanks for sharing this photo with the pleasing, natural colours of your beautiful Valais.

I hope, you and your family are keeping well.
Warm greetings from the Tzaneen Dam in Limpopo, South Africa

Hi Anne.
Lovely places surrounds your native Valais especially in eye of stepper habitant. Curves of fields, trees and mounts are very pleasant as well as combination of vivid green colours and delicate tones of clouds and sky. Framing of the scene is fine too. TFS and warm regards.

Bonjour Anne

Ta photo de paysage montagneux est une carte postale
typique de ton beau pays la Suisse, excellent POV
et de la façon dont le tout est cadré, excellent contraste
des tons de couleurs, le brouillard ou au juste les nuages
dans l'image ajoutent du dynamisme à la photo, TFS
