What should I say … well, it was really an adventure to get at this place. Due to heavy rainfalls all the hiking paths to get up the mountain were destroyed or even worse … they completely disappeared because there were also some landslides. Therefore it was at some points a sort of try and error to get the right way up in the middle of the night. But I had time … enough time to take everything very easy. And after many hiking hours … I saw only rocks and stones … what a surprise … I reached this high plateau. Flowers and grass everywhere! You should have seen my face … I laughed like a madman. How beautiful everything was and I decided to stay at this place and to wait for the sunrise. And of course I made also this shot here ;-)
I made this shot here last year when I was hiking in the southeast of the Swiss Alps. Just at the beginning of the sunrise after some time hiking I decided to make a photo of this area and despite it is an old image I want to show it here. I wish everyone a wonderful weekend and I hope you enjoy this view into the distance.
I made this shot here last year in Summer when I was reaching this wonderful peak of a mountain at an altitude of more than 3’000 meters. And more or less 15 minutes away from the peak I made a break to make this shot here. Well … not the best light … in fact it was a mix of soft and hard light and a challenge to get something useful with the cam but it’s always something special when you get at such locations. And even more the weather conditions changed to something not so comfortable as you can see on the image! In fact when I was seeing the summit it just began to rain … you can see some of the first water drops on the rocks on the right part of the image. But it was really amazing to be there and to feel the cold and fresh air despite it was Summer. For the sense of scale … the first rock on the left side was bigger than me he he he and I had to climb a bit to get at the more comfortable hiking part on my way up. I’m still wondering and impressed about how my dog „Giorgio“ (a collie) always could find his way to follow me he he he :-) I hope you like it.
