A mountain view with three different layers of colors during a nice sunny day on Mannlichen Mountain, near Berne, Switzerland.

Männlichen is a 2,343 metre mountain in the Swiss Alps located within the Canton of Berne.

It can be reached from Wengen by the Luftseilbahn Wengen-Männlichen (LWM) cable-car, or from Grindelwald using the Gondelbahn Grindelwald-Männlichen (GM) gondola. It then takes 15 minutes to walk to the summit. It is a popular viewpoint over the Lauterbrunnen valley and a popular start location for hikers and skiers.

PP work: HDR from a single shot

Hi Francis

WOW! Looks similar to the Himalayas or the Canadian Rockies! Perfect sharpness, fantastic graphism & wonderful colour saturation. The little chalet on the green grassy plateau at left makes the shot. Tfs!

Dear Francis

All the highlights and shadows are well balanced

Hi Francis
Isn't Switzerland a fantastic place for catching superb landscape shots. I rode over the Alps a few years ago on my motorcycle and took loads of fantastic images from the bike - my mistake was not stopping enough..!
When I forst opened up the thumbnail I though I was seeing a 3-layered image, the contrast between the snow-covered, shaded slope and green grassy moutains have split the frame into a tryptich (well almost).
Love the shot, TFS

Hi Francis, I love this view of Swiss mountains, nice POV with lovely lit FG leading to the snow covered mountains. Well done &TFS

Hi Francis
What a lovely scenic view captured with perfect exposure to get nice details and lovely natural colors plus the DOF is amazing.

Wow! Awesome capture of this beautiful landscape! Good use of the shadows to create depth. Great lighting and wonderful colors. Very well done, tfs.

Bonjour Francis Xavier,
Un spectacle grandiose, riche en couleurs surprenant de contrastes...

Trois plans différents tous très bien rendus, la vallée verdoyante, puis la montagne à l'état brut, puis la neige recouvrant les cîmes, une pure bouffée d'air pur....

Olá francis

Hi Francis, I really like the three different levels the different peaks have produced with the shaded one in the middle. It looks like a nice spot to hide away. Fiona
