[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I know it's almost summer now, but when winter is over I'm always longing for skiing. This picture was taken from a hotel balcony on a beautiful, sunny morning before heading to the slopes.
It was more than 6 years ago, but still one of my favourite ski holiday.

Hello Kristof! Very nice landscape. Wonderful winter scenery. Nice light and colours. Very original frame. Good luck!

Beautiful shot Kristof, such a great vantage point. Makes me feel a little chilly just looking at this photo! :). Wonderfully composed and lit, the snow-covered cars in the foreground look great too. Very clear blue skies over such a bright and refreshing looking mountain. The frame suits well, feel as if I could hang this straight on my wall. Well captured.

Hi Kristof

Really its a beautiful view with snow everywhere.
I feel like going for skiing too lol :D


Hi Kristof
Wonderful capture and place
Great perspective and colors

Good morning Hochsölden and good morning to you Kristof,

a stunning view! The light management is great with lovely colours and fine details. I would like to have been there for a while! I enjoyed this post very much, Kristof! Thank you!

Have a nice week,


Beautiful winter scene, Kristof.
Great colors and light. Nice POV.
I also like the frame, friend.
Congratulations and TFS.


Hi Kristof

Dreamy view of the white snow against the saturated blue sky. The building hits the sweet spot in the frame.


Hello Kristof,

The light looks amazing for such clarity.
A fine, diagonal composition.
There is an interesting parallel between the angles and peaks of the building and those of the mountains.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

hello Kristof,

the 1st appealing thing here is the beautiful pure bright snow against the deep blue sky, very attractive and effective contrast.. good idea to post a winter shot now, it works for me:) the lighting is perfect, creates a warm effect in general, smooth snow texture on the moutains and the roof tops *flawless*! looks perfect day for skiing! great shot!

good day Kristof

hello kristof,
the composition is classic with the positioning of the building on one side. exposure appears optimum in showing the blue sky and the competing snow. a gorgeous winter scene. my complements...danilo

Bonjour Kristof.
Magnifique carte postale et bonne qualité photographique qui a permis de garder tous les détails dans les zones clairs de la neige.

HI Kristoff
The snow is impeccably white due to the fresh snowfall.
The fun of cleaning a car awaits a few people.
Interesting details contrasting well with the blue sky.
WEll done
