[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A little change from insects and plants today. The other day I was in my chalet with a friend of mine and we were looking at the sky which became very dramatic. My friend was telling me that she saw a lot of sleeping men at the horizon built by the mountain-range. So we wished them good night. This picture has been taken from the left side of the Rhone Valley at an altitude of 1600m. The mountains are part of the Bernese Alps. I have to say with shame that I don't know the names of most of these pics.

Hello Anne,
Very fine and unusual capture of the patterns in the sky caused by the setting sun and the clouds and the skyline does indeed look like sleeping men's faces: they are all lying in the same direction!
Interesting and amusing shot!

Hello Anne,
Some heavy clouds... Some blue sky!
Lovely sky capture with fine details...
The colour palette is attractive, and it is interesting to explore different kind of clouds!

Hi Anne,
Amazing colours and layers in the sky which presents such a stunning effect. The silhouetted mountains add to the beauty here. Seems like a hallucination or a dreamy sequence. Excellent POV to portray this charming scene and very nicely composed. Kudos.

Hello Anne,
Well saturated colour of the sky!
good sense of depth over the alps
very good sharpness, vivid colour and details

Hi Anne, lovely composition with splendid sky, wonderful colors and excellent mountain silhouette, very well done, ciao Silvio

Bonjour Anne,
Je viens de découvrir cette magnifique phot que je n'avais pas vu, j'Étai s en vacacnse. C,est magnifique ce ciel avec ces couleurs d'orange et de bleu sur la montagne, c'est vraiment une réussite.

Hello Anne
Stunning!! There is little more to say apart from you have a fantastic eye for what is around you and you portray it so well for others with your photographs.
Tfs and kind regards

Every sunset is beautiful but this is something extra! The mountain ranges are just enough in the photo to provide some extra interest and the detail in the clouds is lovely. Maybe if you had waited a few more minutes, the colours would have been even more intense?
