You sure do get around Enrico. You have some awesome mountain shots from all over the world. I'd like to kknow where you were when you took this and why you were there. It looks very well exposed to me with a good range of values. I suspect that this biggest glacier of the Alps is also on the retreat.

Hi Enrico,
Splendid view of the Aletsch Glacier. I like it a lot in B/W. Just a little precision. The Aletsch Glacier is mostly on Valaisan territory.
Best regards

Hi Enrico.
Splendid Alpine panorama.Beautiful composition and very nice place.I like those astonishing look at.Well done.
Greetings Milos

Hi, Enrico.
Fantastic view. Very good composition and depth.

Hi Enrico,
Another spectacular view. The B/W conversion is perfect, with good contrast and clarity. Do I actually see people on top of the peak. You might want to adjust he shadows in the valley part of th photo, because they look a tad too grey.

Hi Enrico,
I like this b&w shot, good combination between dramatic mountains and soft snow. Great capture!

Ciao Enrico
oggi ho scoperto le tue foto, e per me che nutro una particolare passione per la montagna ti dico che è stata una vera emozione. A parte il fatto che le foto sono eccellenti, ma per la cura che hai messo in ciò che stavi per immortalare ciò che in quel momento ti si poneva di fronte, sembra quasi che il tutto voglia uscire dalla foto, una finestra su queste spettacolari montagni. Sarà anche perchè ho "visitato" quest'estate questo fantastico ghiacciaio, purtroppo non ai tuoi livelli, questa è una delle foto che più mi ha colpito.
