Great view Taz! Great POV and colours. The green hills look so good in the summer sun, when in a few months they will be all covered in snow. Well done, TFS.

Fantastic landscape picture, Christian. Wonderful composition and perect POV. Well done & TFS!


Stunning capture Christian, great depth and clarity to this. The course of light has been helpful in revealing the contour of this great mountain scape. Is that person in the frame accompanying you? they seem to be waiting for you....sorry just curious. 7/10 Excellent shot.

Christian, how beautiful this is.

Excellent composition. I also enjoy the green and blue shades - it's a great contrast.

Besides, excellent sharpness.


It's a superb shot of a beautiful area, which happend to be a strong favourite of mine. I have to say that I would have loved to walk even 4 hours to be in such a natuarally beautiful place.

B R A V O!

Salut Christian!
Fantastic place,excellent picture.
Congrats and thanks.
With best wishes,

Breathtaking. My experience is that photos very rarely do the actual view justice, so it must have been amazing to be there.
I really like the way the ridge you are standing on leads you into and around the photo.
Very well done.

Hi Cristian,
What a very nice landscape you produced here.
Your picture give us a very nice impression of the alps. I like the little houses and the water on the left, it shows perfectly how tiny man is in this mighty nature.
Good choosen POV, bright colours and a very good compo. Good work!
