[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

After snowfall mointains are always spectacular when the fog starts to lift and the first blue patches of sky appear. The mountains on the picture are minor peaks of about 3000m altitude and situated over a little place called Raron (known well because the famous writer and poet Rainer Maria Rilke is burried there). They are situated on the right side of the Rhone Valley.
I always see a face in profile at the left side of the shot. I wonder if you do too.

Bonjour Anne,
Yes it is brightening up here too with the snow melting rapidly.
A fine well composed capture of these snowy mountain crags partially hidden by the misty clouds. The light and shade against the blue sky contribute to the composition and appeal of this image.
I can see the face of a heavily eyebrowed man and a bear. It is fun to animate the shapes presented by nature!
Merci et belle fin du semaine.

Beautiful colours and lightness; great composition. A beauty!

Bonjour Anne

excellente balance des blancs pour la reproduction
