This picture I did it in The Principality of Liechtenstein between Vaduz and Stege in the Rhaetian Alps.
The Principality of Liechtenstein en-us-Liechtenstein.ogg /ˈlɪktənstaɪn/ (help·info) (German: Fürstentum Liechtenstein, is a double landlocked alpine microstate in Western Europe, bordered by Switzerland to the west and by Austria to the east.

Liechtenstein is the smallest German-speaking country in the world. It is a constitutional monarchy divided into 11 municipalities.
Its capital is Vaduz.
Much of Liechtenstein's terrain is mountainous, making it a winter sports destination.
Many cultivated fields and small farms characterize its landscape both in the north (Unterland) and in the south (Oberland).

The Rhaetian Alps (Italian: Alpi Retiche) is a mountain range of the Central Alps in the border area of eastern Switzerland, Austria, Liechtenstein and Italy north of the Valtellina (Addatal) and east of the Rhine and the rear Bregaglia.

The Rhaetian Alps are the majority in the Swiss canton of Graubünden east Splügenpass. They are supported by the Engadine in a northern part (the highest peak Piz Linard, 3'411 m ü. M.) of Lichtenstein and the Austrian provinces of Vorarlberg and Tyrol, and a southern (highest peak Piz Bernina, 4'049 m ü. M.) separately, also in the Italian province of Sondrio, Südtirol (Province of Bolzano) and Tyrol lies.

Hallo Adrian
Just too beautiful! How I wish I could be there at that spot, right now. It must be wonderful wondering in a field filled with such an assortments of different flowers, not even to mention the insect life in-between can even see a small insect on one of the flowers on the foreground. And how wonderful it must be to stay in one of those little cabins and breathe the fresh air. Thanks for sharing a small piece of paradise. Best regards.

HI Adrian. This is an amazing clear alpine landscape. Very good contrast and lightning and pefect sharp. My best compliments.

Hi Adrian,
A very beautiful place and equally you have captured it beautifully too. The colors are lovely and eye catching. Also the house in the right of the frame makes it more nice to see. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Pare un peisaj de vis, imi imaginez acea pajiste plina de flori, un rai pt insecte, pt a fotografia toate speciile care misuna pe acolo.
Imi plac copacii din departare, chiar si acea casuta micuta e dragalasa. Frumos
Toate cele bune, Oana

This wonderful landscape reminds me of scenes I saw from the bus while driving through Switzerland. Everything is beautiful - the wildflowers, the trees, the sky. An exceptionally lovely composition. This is a feast for the eyes.

A lovely mountain scene with the wild flowers and the dandelions in seed!

Hello adrian,
A nice alpine view, well composed with fine lighting and colours. Your country is small, but beautiful!
Interesting to see that the alpine meadow is rich in dandelions. In the old days they would instead be alpine flowers but the dandelions have taken over because too much nitrogen is deposited on the soil.
Thanks and have a good weekend,

Beautiful view. Well composed. Interesting perspective. Inflorescences' full meadow, wooden huts and blue sky. Pretty! I thank for description.
Gratuluje i pozdrawiam - Roma

Lieber Adrian,
Dieses Bild hättest Du auch in der Schweiz machen können, sieht wirklich sehr ähnlich aus. Schöne Aussicht auf diese grosse natürliche Weide und die Berge im Hintergrund. Es scheint, als ob du eine schöne Reise gemacht hättest!
Lustig auch Dein Foto in der Intro :-)
Herzliche Grüsse auch an Chrissy

Hello Adrian !
This picture seems to come out of a beautiful dream ! Looks so pretty, so peaceful, so quiet - I wish I could live in this small cottage here ! :-) I really love the combination of flowers, trees, mountains and blue sky, specially as the picture is so wonderfully composed. The colors are vivid and cheerful, but still natural, and a real pleasure for the eyes. The POV is perfect. Very well done !

Helo Adrian! Amazing landscape, wonderful meadow and mountain. Nice colors. Well done!

Foarte dragut din partea ta, urari asa nu mi-a facut nimeni de pe acest site. Impresionat.
Bineinteles, urez si eu un an mai fructuos, mai bun si cu sanatate tie si celor dragi.
