Dear colleagues, I`m here again.
After I missed the exam, I thought of "fleeing" to the neighboring country over the weekend. Kanton Valais in Switzerland was only that I have not visited.
And as there was and tip Mattehorn (4478m) ... I wanted very much to get to see for myself the beautiful landscape.
And that dream has become reality. And as we left empty-handed ... I brought with me some beautiful images.
I hope you will like you too.
Arriving there I thought you are fortunate citizens of this country. The landscapes that it offers Switzerland are the story.
Waiting for your comments and criticisms.
Best regards,

Täsch is a municipality in the district of Visp in the canton of Valais in Switzerland. It is located about 5 km north of Zermatt. The local language is Swiss German.

Täsch is located in the Mattertal valley, which contains almost all the highest peaks in the Alps such as Dufourspitze, Dom and Weisshorn. The 4,490 metres high Täschhorn lies directly above the village.

Zermatt is a car-free town at the end of the valley, so the only connection is the frequent train shuttle from Täsch. Car drivers can park their cars at Täsch and continue to Zermatt by train.

Da, un peisaj minunat!

Hi and Good Morning Adrian,

An utterly beautiful landscape capture from great POV. The harmony of the colours is very nice here.
TFS this and have a nice day!


Hallo Adrian
This is really beautiful and indeed striking. The wide open space captured is great to look at, so the rest of the elements of nature captured in this landscape. Is the Creation not awesome, here seen so well in your image? Just majestic mountains, the valley and the clear blue sky. I wonder who stays in that little house down in the valley? That person must be the most relaxed person in that area. I am sure you felt overwhelmed when you witnessed this in real. Thanks for sharing this lovely piece of nature. Best regards.

hello Adrian
nice view and composition,fine output in colors,a beautiful landscape!
keep photographing! TFS

Ciao Adrian,
bentornato, bellissimo paesaggio alpino con i colori autunnali, molto bella la linea del bosco dei larici oltre i quali si ergono le rocce spolverate di neve
Grazie e complimenti
Buona giornata

Lieber Adrian,
Es freut mich sehr, dass Du Wallis schön gefunden hast. Nachträglich bereue ich sehr, dass ich nicht mitkommen konnte. Du hast die typischen Herbstfarben der Walliser Berge eingefangen und perfekt in Szene gesetzt.
Gute Bildschärfe und Komposition.
Gut gemacht! Ich hoffe noch andere Bilder zu sehen.
Herzlich grüsst

Salut Adrian.
Combinatia de culori dintre superbul albastru al cerului,gri al stancilor si maroul de toamna al copacilor este extraordinara.
Vad ca ai prins un timp bun in Elvetia.
Numai bine.Alin.

Hello Adrian...Its good to see back on TN!

Buna Adrian,
Foarte buna imagine avand culori de toamna cu un cer aproape ireal de albastru.

Bonsoir Adrian
Les teintes d'automne, saupoudrées de flocons de neige sont très bien rendues, par ta photo.
Avec une belle journée et un ciel d'un si beau bleu, le tableau est parfait
Merci amicalement

Hello Adrian,
A fine late autumn mountainscape taken in excellent lighting to show the autumnal colours of the larches on the mountain slope, the beginnings of winter near the top and a fine deep blue sky all set in a great composition.
Thanks and best wishes,

Bonsoir Adrian,
Superbe composition, avec de très belles teintes d'automne, une bonne profondeur. Je te souhaite de garder longtemps en mémoire les beautés du Valais. Et merci du partage! Amicalement,

Hallo Adrian!

Du zeigst uns heute ein schönes "Stück" Schweiz in einer klassischen Komposition. Die spätherbstlichen Farben und der erste Schnee verleihen dem Bild eine angenehme Atmopshäre.

Liebe Grüsse


Hi Adrian,
Welcome back.Great landscape with vibrant contrast.Brilliant blue sky and good depth all the way to the Matterhorn.I went once to Zermatt at the base of the Matterhorn and it is also really beautiful that side.Nice shot.

Salut si scuze ca am scapat-o, dar nici prea tarziu nu e rau.
Stii ce imi place la aceasta imagine? Culorile calde, de toamna ale copacilor (cred ca era larice) si albastrul puternic al cerului. O combinatie faina zic eu. Si imi mai place si varful muntelui, cu foarte putina zapada pe el. Felicitari pt aceasta imagine si pacat de examen! Data viitoare bafta!

Hi Adrian,
I know Taesch well - and I wondered - if the area depicted in your image is, where in the nineties a big earth-slide occurred, and the town was for several days cut off.(I have contacted Anne "anel" to verify this and I'll let you know.)

I agree with you about the beauty of the Valais: the scenery, the nice food and wine AND the friendly residents...

I am glad, that you kept the natural colours and resisted to photoshop it!
The azure sky is an extra bonus at this time of the year. I also like the way your positioned yourself in a way to have a big junk of sky in the top left corner, thereby drawing all attention to it.
Beautiful landscape, well presented.
Enjoy the rest of your day,
Kind Regards

I am very impressed a the image. What catches my eye and makes me wonder is the trees....Are they decayed yet not dropped leaves? what kind are they? I have never seen an image suite like this one...It shows an abnormal tree line almost as if at one time some fire had come through. Very good story telling image!

hello Adrian
nice to see you agains!
very nice landscape with autumn colors
good details and POV
best regards

Hi Adrian,

The point of view from the bottom to the top of the mountains is giving depth and perspective to the composition. It is well framed. The nice blue sky is sendiang a light which bringing out the beauty of the colors. Have a nice day.

Hi Adrian.
Simply charming landscape shot of a very nice place. Colour of the picture are awesome and I cannot be better reproduction of this lovely place. Great selection of a POV and blameless framing of the subject. DOF is also perfect and sharpness across the frame is superb. Bravo and TFS.

Witaj Adrian,
Ciekawy koloryt gor i piekne niebianskie tlo.

Bonsoir Adrian.

Félicitation pour cette photographie du Matterhorn. Excellent netteté et profondeur de champ. Très beau rendu de la pureté de l'azur montagnard.

Merci pour ce partage.

A bientôt.
