Hi all

Dieter (meyerd) and I decided to go together on the Bürglen, a summit at 2165m, although it was very cold (-6C° at home in the morning). We were delighted by the magnificent view and the interplay between the fog and the blue sky. We spent an unforgettable moment together.

From the Bürglen you see the summit of the Gantrisch and at the horizon you can distinguish the Swiss Alps with summits like the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau.

This is a stitch of three pictures, taken in RAW, imported to PS, basic level corrections and stitched with Photomerge of PS.

Many thanks, Dieter, for your company...

Kind regards

Morgen Markus !

Was bedeutet einige glückliche Menschen ! Perfekt fotografiert diese Ansicht, herzlichen Glückwunsch. Ich wollte auch im September besuchen kommen, um Mattahorn anzuschauen . Leider hatte ich keine Zeit.
Und ich sprach gerade mit einem anderen Mitglied der TL, die in der Region wohnt.
Ich hoffe, dass es so schnell wie möglich trotzdem in die Schweiz zu fahren.
Ein schöner Samstag,

Brilliant work Markus! I honestly think this would make an awesome picture on the wall. Such fantastic tones and colours, quite a layered effect from the foreground grassy area and cloudy sky too. The shadows have come out well, and the cloud coverage at backside adds quite a nice mood over the scene. Impressive job, looks like an amazing place to visit.
TFS and have a great WE MF!

Hi Markus

Wow...this must have been a fantastic feeling to be up there and enjoy such a view! What a great panorama!
The stitching of the three shots is excellent and i can't tell where one beings and the other one ends. The ultra wide view resulted does give us a better feel of the atmosphere and perspective from the top :) (although i'm sure nothing compares to the actual thing :))
The fog and blue sky interplay that you mentioned is indeed terrific and adds a bit more drama to the overall great scene. Anyway, those peaks and slopes look breathtaking!
I can only hope that if i ever come to visit Switzerland, you could join me and show me around to such amazing sights.

Cheers, TFS and have a lovely weekend

Hi Markus,
I am glad to see you back. I've missed your creative photos and you stunning landscape photos. This is a wonderful panorama taken from a breathtaking high POV. The light snow cover on the mountains accentuated them beautifully. I like the high degree of clarity and details and I must say that the photo really has a feel of coldness.

Lieber Markus,
es war ein Privileg, mit Dir im richtigen Moment (und Du mit der richtigen, aber schweren Ausrüstung) auf den Bürgle zu stapfen. Und ein Privileg, dass Du mir ein solches Bild widmest. Das Bild zeigt eindrücklich Deine Kennerschaft in Landschaftsphotographie. Aber es isch au cheibeschön gsi! Täusche ich mich oder ist eine Erdkrümmung zu sehen? Da Du drei Bilder zusammengenäht hast (wunderbar, das Resultat...) kann es sich ja nicht um eine Vignettierung handeln. Der Himmel mit den gewellten Wolken, hmmmh...Also man lernt etwas bei Dir, und das Lernen macht viel Spass. Wie gut, habe ich das Kolloquium fahren lassen!
Herzlich und bis bald,

Hi Markus
Very beautiful panorama.. Colours, shapes and composition are great. A realy great ambience...
Best regards

Ciao Markus,
fantastico panoramico paesaggio di queste spettacolari montagne, l'aria tersa e la luce autunnale ci restituiscono delle stupende tonalità di colori, eccellente lavoro sotto tutti gli aspetti.
Grazie e complimenti
Buon fine di settimana

Hi Heaven.
First of all I wish to congratulate you with purchasing wonderful new FF camera. I hope you present us many superb shots. Large version is impressive in high range. Amazing cloudy and sunny sky, excellent details of the mountains slopes, fine exposure of the snow and clouds as well as of whole image. Many thanks and best wishes.

Hallo Markus,
Da kann man nur noch staunen vor solch grosser Schönheit.. Ihr habt es gut gehabt mit Dieter und er wird sich über die Widmung freuen.
Unwahrscheinlich all die Details, die man auf der LV sehen kann. Es bringt eben sehr viel, solche Panaoramen zu vergrössern.
Ein gutes und schönes Wochenende
Herzlich grüsst

An expertly produced panorama of high mountain ranges with beautiful cloud cover Markus, TFS this wonderful image MF.

Hello Markus
non avresti potuto trovare un modo migliore per mostrarci questo stupendo paesaggio di alta montagna dove tutto è eccellentemente ritratto, dai dettagli ai colori grazie ad una luce davvero particolare che da la giusta profondità alla foto.

Like in heaven!!!
I think the heaven look like your capture!

Ah, the Eiger! I've just very recently re-read Heinrich Harrers 'The White Spider', so this one is quite poignant for me. The large format really does this justice and shows the vast landscape to it's best. Great clarity - i can almost feel that biting wind!

Hi Markus. This looks such a beautiful place. Everything looks so clean. I like the different shades of blue. With the shadows on the mountain sides. I see snow has fallen already. Winteris on its way for you. I am glad you had a good day out with Dieter . TFS.

Wonderful panorama and the view is just marvellous. The top is always so beautiful and reminds us that we are so small in comparison. Superb composition. Kudos.

Hi Markus,
what to say to this so splendid and lovely mountainscape capture?
Very captivating in great sharpness and superbs colour rendition. I could feel im also at the top of the world looking at it.
Your stitch is excellent.


A superb panorama, Markus!
Simply outstanding!
We missed your work for too long here, my friend!

Hello Markus!
As I see the winter is already present in you area :)
Very nice panoramic picture, I like especially shadows on the mountains.
Nice work and very nice dedication to Dietrich!

A nice tribute to Dietrich too.
Thanks and have a good week,

Ciao Markus, fantastic mountain landscape with splendid light, I like a lot great version, very well done, have a good week end, ciao Silvio

ciao Markus!
un grazie a te e Dietrich,per questa meraviglia che ci gratifica restando seduti davanti allo schermo.........

ciao sERGIO

Buena luz, formato y colores para esta bella y equilibrada toma; valoro el esfuerzo para conseguirla !!
Me gusta la mezcla de luces, sombras, nieblas... ya que consiguen "meterte" en el paisaje.
Un abrazo Markus: Josep Ignasi.

Hi Markus,
dieses Panorama ist atemberaubend schön.
Wenn ich nur nicht zu faul zum Bergsteigen wäre ;-)
Aber ich komme auch immer nur langsam voran weil ich ja stets denke ohne Kamera geht's nicht ... und schau doch - ein Schmetterling, und hier eine Libelle - ach wart' mal, da blüht eine schöne Blume ...
Da kann man vor Sonnenuntergang keinen Gipfel erreichen ;-)

Also vielen Dank für den Ansporn mit diesem tollen Bild, liebe Grüße

Bonjour Markus,
C'est évidemment la version large qui donne toute sa dimension à ce splendide panorama. Merci pour le partage et félicitations pour la technique.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hallo Markus
This is all I needed to see today, although cold and chilly, just so relaxing and tranquil. We will have to start saving for the airplane tickets to come to Switzerland to see these kind of sceneries for ourselves, as I can only imagine how it must be looking at this kind of view in real life. I love the scenery as a whole and it is indeed a feast to the eye, and of course remedy for the heart. Thanks for sharing this wonderful view as part of a dedication to a great fellow photographer (and may I say bicycle rider). Kind regards.

nice panorama, TFS Ori
