Back after a break...
Fit again and a new laptop too.

This view has been taken from the Hannig-area over Saas Fee. We were over the tree-line at ca 22oom, but there was this lonely tree (larch) which caught my attention. The sky was dark blue and the temperatures just perfect, not like now.
At the left corner can be seen an Ibex and behind parts of a glacier (may be of the Riedgletscher)

Welcome back, Anne! I didn't know you were unwell. Hope you are back to sound health again.
And congratulations for the new laptop! Working on it must be fun.
This is an adorable mountainscape in winters. Superbly controlled shot at 1/4000. The sharpness is phenomenal. I love the deep blue sky behind the mountain. I can also see the Ibex within the frame.
Thanks and regards.

Bonjour Anne,
Welcome back with restored health!
Nice classical view of this peak in winter. The light management and composition are excellent in the strong side lighting.
Winter has now arrived in S. Sweden with heavy snowfall in our new area.
Merci et meilleurs pensées,

Bright photo with excellent detail and brilliant light. Very nice composition with good colours and perfect white exposure.

Hallo Anna.
Eindrucksvolle winter Landschaft mit sehr netten Details und außergewöhnlicher Schärfe. Ich liebe die ausgezeichnete Klarheit und den vollkommenen Fokus.Liebe Grüße Siggi

Ciao Anne. Exciting playing of light. Top sharp and details.


Ciao Anne,
bentornata con un bellissimo paesaggio alpino, bellissima luce e colori ben saturati che esaltano le rocce impervie con il ghiacciao, dove s'inerpica con facilità lo stambecco e dove tenace ha radicato anche il larice.
Grazie e complimenti
Buona serata
Con amicizia

WOW! Now that is dynamic... shall we call it a mountainscape yes? The contrasts really make the image pop out and the deep rich colours are a welcome addition. This is away from your usual as you do not do that many landscape shots... but you have taken your skills at macro and work magic.!

Bonjour Anne

Pour moi lorsque j'entend le nom de pays Suisse
dans ma tête automatiquement vient une image
de paysage comme dans ta photo. Une belle photo
avec un excellent POV et l'ajout de cet arbre
dans l'image, TFS


Wow, I love snowy photos! We rarely get snow where we live.

Nice to see you back with this beautiful landscape, fine composition and good exposure..tfs.

Hello Anne.

Magnifique prise de vue d'un phénomène géologique impressionnant (comme cela apparaît très bien sur le "pendage" des couches sédimentaires de la montagne au second plan). Une belle leçon de géologie et de tectonique.

Aussi, grand intérêt de cet arbuste isolé vivant de l'air du temps, apparemment ; comment est-il possible de survivre dans un tel environnement ?

Techniquement, composition très dynamique, avec le double pendage inversé (entre le premier plan et l'arrière plan) ; belle netteté, grande profondeur de champ, point de vue nous amenant en montagne.

Merci de nous offrir ce petit coin de Suisse.

Bonne soirée.

Hello Anne,
A wonderful mountain lanscape with nice colours and great light. The lonely tree and the Ibex are a bonus for this beautiful composition. Well done!

Hello Anne,
such a lovely mountainscape. The blue sky is so pretty and the snow is so exciting to note ( such a wanted experience to witness snowy mountains).
The lone tree is such a good additional elements.
Very exciting landscape.
