Impressive rock formation before a blue sky.

From Arolla we walk to the Riedmatten in about 1990m, a pass to next valley.

Hello Mr. President! Great mountain! Great effect! Cheers!

Great details, DOF, and POV Achim.
The very blue sky does give this one a surreal effect :)
Well done.

Well framed shot of the rock disintegrating by degrees. I have seen this phenomenon happening in the Himalayas too, Achim.
The lovely sky gives a great backdrop for the view.
TFS and regards.

Impressive details and superb colours on this very fine composition, Achim! It looks like a treacherous walk, though -- a lot of rough terrain at this altitude
