[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

Landscape pictures are not the most popular pictures on this site. But I think it's always interesting to show the regions where pictures are taken.

Alt Zeneggen is situated at ca 1400m altitude on the left side of the Rhone Valley. This region is very wild and rich in seldom flora and fauna, due to its situation and its steppe-like soil. We can find there very rare flowers like several Astragalus-species and also special insects like ascalaphes . There is also a great variety of birds.
On the picture you can see on the first level, the dry steppe vegetation, then some Birch trees with autumnal foliage and behind the forest, mainly formed by pines and larches.
At the background some pics of the Bernese Alps, among others the summit of the famous Bietschhorn partly hidden behind another mountain.

hi Anne
lovely shot
beautiful sharp and mountain and trees good POV

Ciao Anne. Razor details and excellent DOF fot a lovely mountainscape in hard sharp.


Gorgeous landscape proudly made in Switzerland! Good day Anne! I love the scenery from the far North, specialty in this time of the year, or actually any time. Lovely, soft pastel colors, are in good contrast with the icy tip of the great mountain behind.

The serenity of autumn is strongly manifest in this landscape, Anne.
I like the portrait orientation of this picture that shows the foreground of an alpine forest changing colours with the season and the craggy mountains on the far horizon. The blue sky adds a great deal of appeal to this lovely image.
Thanks and regards.

Hello Anne,
On my screen this photo looks a bit oversharpened, but maybe I'm wrong. I'm the only one so far who noticed it. A landscape in beautiful natural colours and taken from a fantastic POV in a very pleasing composition.

Hello Anne,
Fantastic landscape with outstanding details and wonderful clarity.
Great composition with excellent POV and fine details.

Bonsoir Anne,
Merci d'avoir posté ce paysage de rêve, avec une grande maîtrise des contrastes de lumière. Cela donne envie de prendre le petit chemin qui serpente entre les bouleaux... Amitiés,

Liebe Anne, nochmals,

die Komposition gefällt mir sehr, das ist ein wirklich stimmungsvolles Bild. Das Bild hat aber eine gewisse Körnung, die sich auf meinem Bildschirm auswirkt. Wie kommt es dazu? Vielleicht ist das Bild leicht übergeschärft (ich verwende im Raw nur 20% Schärfung auf 1 pixel, nach der Bildreduktion auf TN Format schärfe ich nochmals ganz leicht).

Guet nacht Anne,

Hi Anne,

I like this, you've done it justice with your chosen POV and how you've included the snowy mts on back side.
TFS and cheers,


Hi Anne. I am always envious with people being able to enjoy the autumn glory.The trees are beautiful with excellent view of the peak at the backdrop. Very nice choice of pleasing tall frame with very nice foreground details and spotless blue sky. The management of light is fabulous and thanks for sharing. Best regards - Jusni

Hello Anne,
this view is very exciting with layers of beauty. The rocky foreground and lively forest is well seen. The most wonderful to me is the snow capped mountain.
You presented the scenery with great clarity and lighting is perfect.
A very pleasant mountainscape view.


Bonjour Anne,
Une bonne composition avec les différents plans nettement identifiables et surtout un chemin qui donne envie de se promener dans ce payasage baigné d'une superbe lumière qui fait resplendir les couleurs d'automne.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Greetings Anne,
You're right - it's always interesting to show the regions where pictures are taken. Beautifully composed landscape with with a fantastic triade of birch / spruce / mountains, top class sharpness, colors and marvellous lights. Gorgeous photo. Bravo. And about "landscape pictures are not the most popular pictures on this site", well - what's interesting if this photo isn't? One of the best shots in your wonderful portfolio.
Tfs, friendly regards, László

Hi Anne,
I do enjoy landscape pictures it gives one an idea of the area as you mentioned.This image has excellent depth and sharpness throughout with a multiplicity of details, well taken.

Hy Anne
I just remembered about this image...sory for my late reaction!
I must say i love it! Landscape images especially with mountains are quite rare nowadays, so I really enjoy seeing one. And yours brings me memories, nice memories.
The vertical composition and the "stratification" of different vegetation layers is quite well prezented.
