Säntis was the name of a canton of the Helvetic Republic from 1798 to 1803, consisting of the territory of St. Gallen, Appenzell and Rheintal. Its capital was St. Gallen.

Appenzell (or Appenzellerland) is a region in the northeast of Switzerland, entirely surrounded by the Canton of St. Gallen. A former canton of the Old Swiss Confederacy, Appenzell has been divided since 1597 into Appenzell Innerrhoden and Appenzell Ausserrhoden.

Appenzell is an alpine region, particularly in the south, where the Alpstein limestone range (culminating in the Säntis which is 8,216 feet (2,504 m)) is found, though towards the north the surface is composed rather of green hills, separating green hollows in which nestle neat villages and small towns. It is mainly watered by two streams that descend from the Säntis, the Urnasch joining the Sitter (on which is the capital, Appenzell), which later flows into the Thur. There are trams from Appenzell to St Gallen either through Gais or through Herisau, as well as lines from St Gallen to Trogen and from Rorschach to Heiden.

My Neighbour, i am glad to say :o) You live in a very beautiful part of the world! This is a fine example of it! This shows the every aspect, below the snowline in the alpine pastures right though to the snowy peaks in the backgroun - a well chosen POV with alot of depth, well done.

Witaj Adrian,
Bardzo ladny alpejski krajobraz bardzo dobrze skomponowany, piekne niebieskie niebo. Gdyby tak więcej swiatla na pierwszym planie ozywiloby to kolory ale i tak bardzo udane zdjecie.
Pozdrawiam, Pawel

Lieber Adrian,
Es freut mich natürlich sehr, wenn Du schöne Landschaften aus der Schweiz zeigst. Diese Landschaft wirkt noch weitgehen unberührt und natürlich und Du hast einen schönen Aussichtspunkt gewählt. Ich muss gestehen, dass ich noch nie in Appenzell war :-(.Aber ich habe schon vor, mal diese Gegend zu bewandern.
Herzlich grüsst und dankt

Ciao Adrian,
uno splendido paesaggio montano con i bei prati verdi punteggiati di Taraxacum officinale, bello il contrasto con le chiazze bianche di neve, bella la prospettiva delle alte montagne sullo sfondo.
Grazie e complimenti
Ciao Maurizio

Hi Adrian,
the lanscape captivate the view by having such a beautiful yellow flowers in the foreground and the sharpness of the mountains at the back.
Nice colours all over the place. what i like most is the snow there.


Quel beau décors Suisse, Adrian !
Bientot il sera recouvert de neige...
J'aime beaucoup le résultat et les nuances de verts.
Merci amicalement

Hi Adrian
I wish it was the start of spring today. Your landscape is a nice reminder of how beautiful springtime can be. I like the way you composed this image by capturing the angle of the mountain and the way it blends naturally into the stand of evergreens. The blue sky and green meadow is amazing in colour.
TFS Janice

superb....love the colours and the place is very good

A gorgeous landscape shot Adrian!!
The majestic mountains in the BG tends to draw you into the scene. Love the beautiful little yellow wildflowers as well as the stately pines and patches of snow. The rock outcroppings tend to add character to the low lying valley. Overall a wonderful scene indeed!!

Hello Adrian
bellissimo paesaggio di montagna che porta alla mente la stagione fredda che è appena passata con la neve sulle cime dei monti e nel contempo ci introduce alla primavera con i fiori che cominciano a sbocciare dando colore ai prati. Ottimo.
