Dear colleagues from the TN, as I have already promised I would like to offer pictures of snow. I finally found it, but ... 2000m. This is the first picture with snow. And others will follow.
As a bonus for your patience to drive that little lake in the bottom right of image. Do not know if there are fish in that lake or if fishing is allowed. Well, I really loved that oasis of water in the middle of the mountains.
I think it is Riffel Lake. Picture I did after a train station "ROTENBODEN (Riffelsee).
I hope you too will like this picture with snow.
I want you a nice and quiet week,

Red soil is the last stop before the Gornergrat. Spot is located in the winter one of the five Igludörfer Switzerland. Red soil near the chairlift "Gifthittli lies", the top station nearly reaches to the Gornergrat. Also located here is the start of the Zermatt Schlittelparadieses. In addition, red soil of the starting point of the road to Monte Rosa hut.

Ce bine arata zapada dupa atatea zile cu temperaturi de peste 30 de grade ziua, insa lumina si albastrul cerului la munte raman inconfundabile!

Foarte frumoasa imagine de iarna, de invidiat! Regre, dar nu mai am puncte, sa apreciezi.

Hallo Adrian
Time surely does fly. It just felt like the other day when there were an abundance of images containing snow shared on the gallery and here it is almost that time of year again. This snowy landscape is truly beautiful but the bright blue sky caught my eye as it is such a clear, almost "fresh" blue. It is wonderful to look at a piece of "Winter wonderland" where I am thousands of kilometres away. Thanks for sharing this lovely white view, and I am looking forward to the images still to come.
Kind regards.

Hello Adrian,

It's are cold there the image have a blue colour tone.
Good pov and dof.
fine colod colours tones.

Excellent landscape with good snow covered mountains and the lake looks very interesting. tfs.

Hi Adrian,

A wonderful winter scenery from highlands! It reminded me our Karagöl lake (Bolkar mounts).
TFS and have a nice night MF!


Witaj Adrian,
Popsulismy klimat, zeby zobaczyc snieg trzeba jechac w Alpy. Cudna alpejska panorama, piekne niebo. Fantastyczne zdjecie.

Salut Adrian.
Foarte frumos peisaj de munte si interesante culori in fotografia ta.
O seara buna.Alin.

Lieber Adrian,
also Du bist echt stark auf Deiner Landschaftspirsch im Wallis und anderswo. . Die Bergseen von Rotenboden sind während vieler Monate zugefroren, aber da sie wenig Nährstoffe enthalten, ist die Sauerstoffzehrung durch tote Biomasse im Winter gering. Molche und Elritzen können sich darin halten. Ob es auch andere Fische (Groppen, Bachforellen) hat, weiss ich nicht.

Herzlich grüsst aus der eingeschneiten Schweiz

Hi Adrian,
Lovely winter landscape.I liked colors,snowy atmosphere and POV a lot.
Thanks for posting..

Hello Adrian! Amazing mountains, wonderful landscape, excellent snow, nice sky, very nice colours. Good POV and capture. Well done!

Ciao Adrian, splendid light on wonderful mountains, fantastic winter composition, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hi Adrian,

The point of view leads my eyes toward the mountains which is giving depth to the composition. It is also showing the details and colors of the mountains. It is well framed. The reflection of the light on the snow is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.
