[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hi all!

In the last two pictures I have told about that magical and mystic valley Törbeltälli on the Southern part of the Upper Wallis. From this valley, on the way up to the Augstbordhorn, you have a marvellous view on the Bietschhorn on the Northern side of the Wallis. The Bietschhorn (3934m) is one of the most beautiful mountains to look at, but less interesting to climb. Usually, the Bietschhorn is photographed from the Moosalp or from the villages of Zenhäusern or Bürchen, often in combination with the larches in their automnal glow. This time, I prefered the harsh shapes of the Törbeltälli.

Bonjour Markus,
Quelle image pourrait atteindre plus mon coeur que le Bietschorn bien aimé. Tu le présentes effectivement d'une manière peu conventionnelle,décentré et dans un décor bien minéral.Belle lumière d'automne. Bravo

Hello Markus! Excellent perspective. Very good sharpness, nice colors. Cheers!

Really stunning view here, this is a place i would love to visit. the only thing i would say is it might be nice to see more of the mountain in the BG and less of the mountain in the FG.



Hi Markus,
Great view on the Bietschhorn. The different layers of the mountains are great especially since they all have different colors and texture. The panoramma like composition and the fact that the subject is nicely placed on the right give a very pleasant view. The clarity of the photo is wonderful, especially considering the heigh altitude.

Hello Markus,
thanks for liking my butterfly shot with red flowers. I really appreciate it. You comment on the elements of photography really please me and make me feel very motivated. I have been away and the workload is very pressurising on em. But when I read it , I feel so much relieved and happy. Thanks for helping me to manage myself.
This photo of the mountains and rocks is very pleasing too. I love to walk and climd hills, but the one is Switzerland must be very interesting and outstanding as above.
Really pretty with pestel sky and of course the snow. ( we dont have it here).
Brilliant mountain scenery.


Something seems to have happened, Markus, I am not able to edit my own comment that I posted yesterday on another pic of yours...Strange...
Coming back to this shot, it's harsh alright, but I'd use the word raw or untamed here....While this may not be one of your 'painting' shots, it's certainly very beautiful, and being so natural, it comes out very beautifully.Could also post a larger version?I'm sure that will look even better.
Thank you for sharing this beauty!
