[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Dear colleagues and friends (virtual) wish to dedicate this picture of the Matterhorn to Anne Gattlen (Anel).

To the great masters joy I had the honor and pleasure to meet a person.

Can I be sure a great man. And as a man and as a photographer is a person which can not be said than that oriceine were excited to know.

Through her pictures and the comments you post has a very significant contribution to this site, TN.

I wish and this way to thank staff for their contribution to the gallery where we post.

I chose this picture for two reasons:

1) She was born in canton Valais. So is a part of his childhood.
2) Her father published a book describing all aspects of the Matterhorn graphics, especially in the 19th century. This book can buy in Zermatt.

I hope to like the dedication and of course you too.
Expect criticism, opinions, proposals.

The most friendly regards,

Hi Adrian. I am sure ann will love this picture and i must say a nice dedication to her. You have taken a first class picture of the Matterhorn . It has the 3D look about it. Taken with such detail and natural colours. well taken TFS.

Salut Adrian
Este o imagine fantastica a acestui varf, foarte cunoscut in intreaga lume. Si ai avut noroc sa surprinzi si un cer ceva mai colorat, un apus probabil, ce aduce un pic de culoare. In rest, foarte clara imaginea, nu am ce comenta.
O seara faina,

Hello Adrian,
Fantastic capture, with great colours and moving clouds.A real 3D effect of the mountains. Kind dedication to our friend Anne, a great contributor of TN. TFS,

Ma uimeste colectia ta de capturi cu si despre munti!
Se pare ca acesta este mediul tau natural in care te simti atat de bine!
O dedicatie pe masura destinatarului ei:Ane!
Felicitari amandurora!

Buna Adrian,
Multumesc pentru comentariu si dupa cum spui fiecare posteaza ce poate insa cand vad peisajele tale alpine, de-a dreptul fermecatoare, ma cam topesc cu gandul la muntii nostri - sunt si eu un montaniard, dar unul de vara.
Imaginea ta e extraordinara, o compozitie buna si culori de invidiat. Frumoasa dedicatie.
Numai bine,

Clouds, snow and sharp rocks together is very beautiful.
Very good capture.

Lieber Adrian,
Das ist ja wohl eine Ueberraschung! Hab herzlichen Dank für die so schöne Widmung :-). Ich bin so gerührt.
Du hattest viel Glück mit dem Licht bei deinem Walliser Aufenthalt, Licht das Dir erlaubte die gelungene Fotoserie auf TN zu präsentieren. Eine sehr schöne horizontale Bildgestaltung mit dem König der Berge links unter einem interessanten wolkigen Himmel. Sehr gefälliges und gutes Bild.
Leider habe ich keine grünen Sternchen mehr..
Nochmals herzlichen Dank und liebe Grüsse

Hello Adrian,
Hope you'll be doing fine friend.In order to thank you for your comments on my recent photo of a mountain gorge in Pakistan, I have found this gem from you and was deeply impressed. In fact, my own photo seemed quite ordinary as compared to this snow clad beauty here.This is a fine dedication, a great tribute to a friend. The partial cloud cover, shadow and reflections and the strange pervasive light plus snow....the white of snow and the black of granite mountain walls...........wonderful contrast!
Really enjoyed this wondrous photo and consider Anne lucky and am happy for her.Thanks a lot for sharing....and thanks for your comments....take care...warmest regards/Abid

Hi Adrian,
A photo tremendously deep, that speaks of silence, majesty and enormity wrapped in nature. Great work of light and contrasts. Very neat. Really attractive to the eye.

hello Adrian,
thank you very much for your good wishes in my anniversary photo!
impressive and beautiful landscape, the contrasting colors and the blue filter create a fine photo output!
keep photographing my friend! TFS

Ciao Adrian,
una splendida dedica alla nostra amica Anne, straordinario paesaggio alpino con la magnifica vetta di quella che si puà considerare la montagna per eccellenza delle Alpi, splendidi colori ben contrastati e saturati, meravigliosa e piacevole composizione equilibrata e ben bilanciata in ogni dettaglio.
Grazie e complimenti
Ciao Maurizio

Hi Adrian,

This is incredible winter landscape. I am very impressed, looks perfect from where I'm sitting. Also very pleasant dedication to our lady friend Anne!
My hat literally goes off to you.
TFS and cheers,

harika bir manzara, tebrik ederim.

Hi Adrian
Nice choice of a mountain for a dedication to Anne. The Matterhorn is a tall, well know mountain and you captured it well with beautiful light surrounding it.

Hello Adrian,
A beautiful dedication as well as an incredible image of the Matterhorn. Thank you for sharing Adrian and great job.

Dear Adrian ,
So nice scenery with great composition.
Nice light.

Best wishes

Hellow Adrian,
This is an absolute magnificent photo of the magestic Matterhorn. Perfect depth and good exposure creating an intense landscape scene, well done.

Hi Adrian.

Beautiful little dedication and well written mote.

The picture is beautiful too with excellent composition. I like the well exposed details from interesting pov.

Thanks for sharing and best regards.

Hello Adrian,

This is a superb photo, a beautifully composed and perfectly executed photo, to be sure. Is this an HDR image? The mountain and sky are both well-exposed, a difficult feat to attain usually.


Comme je m'appelle aussi Anne et que je vis dans les Alpes française ma curiosité a été attirée...
Il devait faire froid pour que les lumières soient ainsi. Ces nuances bleutées et rosées sont difficiles à voir et à capter, car rare

Bonjour Adrian,
Très délicate attention... et splendide publication sous une étrange lumière produisant de non moins étranges couleurs.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

merhaba Adrian
this is great landscape shot of Swiss Alps,with splendid colors and great composition of snowy hill. It is also nice dedication to our friend Anne. thanks for sharing, have a good night MF.
