A mountain view with a nice sun from 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.

Hi Francis,

Hello Francis,

Not a view for anyone with vertigo!
This is a fine pov, taking in the slopes of the tree encrusted f/g hilside, the lower valley and the rugged, barren slopes of the b/g mountains.
The thirds composition is clearly shown by the colour and the texture changes.
A really breathtaking view.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hello Francis!

What a great landscape!
The colors and the light is great!

What a superb scenic view you have captured here, Francis!

I like the POV here, showing vast foothills and the dynamic Alps who give great contrast to the lush green fields in the FG. The lake in the FG adds another charm into the shot.
Very well seen!

best regards,

Very good POV, francis
The snow on the top of the mountain is so pretty. The litte lake with the green hills around it looks so cool.
Light, colours, sharpness are all good

dear Francis Xavier,
a wonderful panoramic picture of the beautiful view,
clear colors and fine figures are very well expressed,
the atmosphere is fine, so fine,
middle shadow portion on the edge of hill is effective to make whole image bright,
thank you for your excellent picture,

This is spectacular view. Majestic mountains and lovely blue sky. You had a great POV and you did a great job. Everything is sharp and well saturated.

What an nspiring view Francis , well this is Switzerland after all , no doubt it is ideal and popular hiking country on a nice day like you had then , who would not want to be there !
Wonderful sky and greenery and talk about sharpness here, nicely presented , i would be a loss of time to find a flaw in this one ! Congrats and thank you for sharing it,

Breathtaking scene captured beautifully with an expansive POV and creative/well balanced composition. The lighting and colour are superb with excellent DOf and consistent sharpness throughout the frame. Love the frame choice and presentation- well done and TFS!

Splendid view Francis

High level of brightness and very good colors. So wonderful landscape of mountains high with a dreaming sky. The small lake and roads on the green grass is a adding of this good earth land
